Sunday 31 January
A stimulating conversation. Two stated positions, though one was a well worn path and the other looking to discover and interpret for today.
The conversation part of the day was a listening as well as a talking task.
The integrity was most keenly felt by a sense of inclusion as opposed to an appeal to exclude because of an understanding of the kingdom fixed and a return solely to that vision.
Please include and be damned rather than exclude and be damned.
God’s love of us, whatever the state of sin, will conquer. The proof…..?

Again, I am amazed at how a brief conversation can open so many doors. New horizons can be seen and new potentials are released.
Angry or annoyed with someone – have a coffee and a chat – peace can so easily return.

Closer the contact the better the communication.

Now that’s a question hat perhaps needs some reflecting upon!
We are not a book group, instead of reading a book and then chatting about it, we watch a film, then over curry talk about it. You’ll like this – we have a film group!
Sometimes the conversation spreads over a couple of hours and we return to what we saw and heard in the film throughout the meal. Sometimes the word ‘rubbish’ is used and we move on to a myriad of other different subjects.
Tonight we will sit, and over first a couple of beers and then the meal, will be taking about ‘The Woodsman” with Kevin Bacon in the lead role. A strange subject for a film – we will, I think, talk long and hard. Relevant to the news at the moment….
