- A group of Diocesan clergy and laity, service users and carers have developed Christian quiet days aimed at improving wellbeing. It came from a discussion about what we could do to improve our own health and wellbeing. Our December quiet day 'Just be' was aimed at laity (lay people not those ordained as clergy). We intend to offer these events widely and encourage you to particpate if you are new to Quiet Days and, if you are christian, or if not, to simply make space from the busy pace of life. People with no 'mental health concern' are always welcome. Local quiet days are listed on School of Formation pages of the website.
- If you cannot take a day why not take a moment to slow down, be still, notice how you are feeling, listen to your breathing, take a moment to shut off the 'to do' list, sense with your spirit, find a prayer-like space without words, remain for a few moments, then sense the presence of God. You may choose to pray with us today click here
We pray today for ourselves our life and health,
our sense of being in control or overwhelmed or perplexed.
We take a moment to 'just be' in Gods presence.
We pray for Gods wisdom to know our limits and need for rest.
To be able to lay down heavy burdens and our sense of falling short.
We ask that through Gods limitless resources we can refresh our sense of peace, wholeness and joy.
