Martial Arts And Godly Play

A group of friends from Denmark brought us alive. Oyvind is a martial arts expert who has harnessed these arts to Christian prayer. He  graced the heugh (the hill) with his body prayer exercises, then  descended to swim in the cold North Sea around St. Cuthbert's Isle. There seals came to him.  He has written a manual and is booked to lead a retreat at The Open Gate in September next year.

A professional network of head teachers from Newcastle took a day's retreat on the island, and I met them piled with resources from our resource centre. How encouraging that harassed and hard-worked head teachers are wise enough to do such a thing.

CA&H Voyager Sally Simpson and her frirend Liz Cannon represented the UK at the European meeting of the Godly Play movement in Germany.  There they met representatives from countries such as Latvia who are newly interested in Godly Play. They were also ionterested to learn of our Way of Life.  A holistic Way of Life that inspires spaces for prayer, reflection and storytelling goes well with Godly Play.

On my day off I attended the exhibition on Catherine the Great at Edinburgh's National Museum of Scotland, and had a conversation with friendly Muslim evangelists on the Royal Mile.
