We particularly hold the forests of the Shire dear to our hearts, and seek ways to protect them, and to provide a place of rest and renewal for those who already are, plus anyone else needing renewal and reflection amidst their good doing.
Connect with the God of Life, surrounded by the Earth family at Gleniffer.
God who is Mother, Father, Spirit, Encourager, Wisdom, the River feeding many wells, the elephant being described by blind people (snake, rope, tree, spear). God of the rainbow and all the rainbow people, here in communion with the Gumbaynggirr people long before Jesus, or even Abraham, walked the Earth.
We engage with Jesus’ teachings, Christian tradition and other traditions, through prayer, readings, reflections, ritual and sharing. We celebrate a wide diversity of opinion on who or what Jesus was. We encourage each other to respond to the presence of the God who loves all of life, us, and even our enemies, without dictating to each other how we should respond.
All people who are willing to make others welcome, are welcome. Four and no legged people are welcome if they respect everyones boundaries, and someone cleans up after them if need be.
This gathering is part of the embryonic Forest Ministry, auspiced by the Uniting Church Mid North Coast, and made possible by the hospitality of the Gleniffer Community Church.
