Monday 5th August 2019
Despite the predictions of rain we set off in very pleasant weather stopping first of all just before the bridge over the river, then through the woods into the meadow and finally around the yew tree at Beltingham Church.
Prayers, readings and poems were said at each stopping point. Led by Philippa Collingwood, we sang "Be still for the presence of the Lord" before going into Church for Evening Prayer. Additional hymns were "What a friend we have in Jesus", "For the beauty of the earth" and "O Lord my God".
A very big thank you to Nigel Clayburn for the organist accompaniment.
The evening concluded with drinks and nibbles at The Old Vicarage.
Thanks to Carol Adams and Anne Galbraith for the organisation of this walk providing opportunities to take time to think and reflect on the beauty of the surroundings in which we live and the creation God has given us.
