A summary of Greenbelt ideas shared in the cafe after Eucharist. We considered being small in time and space and how we each react to this. Can we move from a reaction of fear to freedom? Can the scale of all things actually bring us stillness and peace? We shared written wisdoms. Psalms that spoke of how God was mindful of (tiny) us within the universe. C.S. Lewis wrote how creation was "sung into being". The Gospel reminds us of the eternal presence of God, "Before the world was created, the Word already existed". The celebration of the hazelnut by Julian of Norwich, "God made it, God loves it and God keeps it." We thought of some improvisations. Cupping ears. Lighting candles. And we reflected on some images. A pinpoint of light surrounded by darkness.
