Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and mature. (Romans 12:2)
My home base in Port Elliot, South Australia, is a small and cosy cottage on a sandhill which enables contemplative conversations and regular practice of being grounded in and centred in Omega. In normal times, the sea view from my window is a translucent aqua blue and the sand a warm off-white colour that invites a stroll along the beach. This centring down which comes whether in stillness or in motion flows into my days as I mingle locally with other contemplatives and join electronically the vast array of similar seekers across the globe.
The sand soft beneath
The waves gentle, constant, strong.
Shells on morning walk.
Sun hot, shade welcome.
Air crisp, fresh and encompassing.
Water cool and fresh.
The sand stirred, rippled.
Birds making their evening flight.
Sky colours evening walk.
Silver streaks shining
Dark sea holds deep mem’ries
The beach space between
Cycling day and night
Life brings its differences.
Welcoming each change. Ω
What is this? Lent is the 40 days, excluding Sundays, before Easter. Traditionally it is a time of reflection and pilgrimage. To help you on this journey, Sanctuary has put together daily stories and images from people in the congregation which are focused on God in this place. Why this theme? Read this! #Lent2023.
