Welcome to St John's * Welcome to St John's * Welcome to St John's
Please see below some photos that were sent into us during the beginning of lock down when we introduced Prayer Walks as a way of still engaging with the church even when we couldn't be together.
A few tips fron Susan Oakes who runs our
Meeting God In Silence service on a Monday evening:
I pray for others - and the prayer walk liturgies are helpful - and then still my mind, using the words from Psalm 46 ”Be still and know that I am God” you can repeat them and each time remove words so ”Be still and know, Be Still, Be” . I find this helps to take my focus from the worries in my mind and direct them more to a focus on the presence of God.
Sitting in nature and listening to only the birds and the wind reminds me of the beauty and steadfastness of God’s creation and his love for us just as we are.
I have found it very calming.
I hope that helps
