Those who participated in the Quiet Day on Saturday 21st November had a variety of activities available to explore the theme of ‘Live Adventurously’. There were plenty of spaces to meditate, to contemplate, to read, to knit, make a collage, write, or just sit and be still, being open to inspiration. There were six of us participating in the morning. We began with silent worship, and then had an introduction to the theme from Judy which encouraged us to take stock of the experiences, gifts and skills we have, so as to be ready for future adventures. Most of the morning was then spent in silence using the resources placed around the Meeting House. We had a short time of sharing our experience before lunch, when two people had to leave.
We shared a silent lunch. Then in the afternoon, Terry spoke to the theme and helped us focus on the future, to be open to whatever lies ahead. There were more activities and resources added to those already available, to use in a longer period of silence. Afterwards we again shared our experiences. We ended with silent worship. We all found the day very fruitful and there is a strong feeling among us that we should have another such day next year.
