This week we are back walking the physical marker posts and shelters that inspired our blog name, it is our annual MCYM retreat to Holy Island. It is a time to hear from God, to revisit memories of other times we have walked this way, to listen to the wisdom of our speakers, to break bread with others in the church, on the beach, to catch up on news, to pray, to anoint, to make art, to drink wine, sip hot chocolate and to do all those things that make up an MCYM style retreat. And as the prayer card in the church says:
As Aidan cared for the souls of others, help me to love unconditionally.
As Cuthbert trusted in you for all his needs, help me to have faith.
As Eadfrith was inspired to glorify you, help me to be creative.
As this island has been soaked in prayer help me to pray unceasingly.
