Off to Lindisfarne

After another lovely evening tonight with the hOME community I am off on retreat early in the morning to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in Northumbria for a few days. It's come at a great time - one of those things that's difficult to plan when you have to book quite a way in advance. Lindisfarne is an old place of retreat for me - I used to go there when I lived in Edinburgh as it's actually only about an hour south of Edinburgh. I'm planning to read the Orthodox classic - The Way of a Pilgrim - as well as Richard Rohr's 'Everything Belongs'. But I'm sure that much of the time will be spent walking and praying and reflecting. And I might even make it to the pub too. Bring it on!

Blessings on your retreat. May God show up in surprising ways. Enjoy the calm before the baby storm.
hOME is in my prayers as are you and Pipa.
