Arrested, I stop and gaze,

At the beauty that lies before.

Captivated, each breath,

Returns in a haze of compelling light.

A golden mist rolls in to the shore.

My whole being, enthralled,

Awakened to heightened senses.

Entranced, each rhythm,

Your name is called, from deep inside.

Breaking away all my defences.

Called from death to life. Redeemed. Restored.

‘Capturing the moment…’

I’m not sure I can find the right words to express the weekend experience. Everything was far, far above any expectations I might have imagined. To define it all is a bit beyond me.
The Grace of God, the delicate but so powerful move of the Holy Spirit, the love and hospitality shown by Paul and Jane and the overall ‘oneness’ that happened through the leaders of each group and all those who participated. The sense of God’s presence throughout the group presentations which overflowed into the communion time was just beautiful beyond description. I would love to go again, but would like all of my church to go first!
