Time out

This Lent I’m giving up social media, with the plan to release more time for contemplative prayer. I’ll see you on Easter Sunday. #thoughtsfromswallowbarn


Wonderful couple of days retreat in the Yorkshire Dales. This is one of my favourite benches overlooking Troller’s Ghyll at the top of Parcevall Hall gardens. #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Winter’s night

The sun sets as we prepare to start the longest night of the year. And, as our evening prayer rises before us, let’s pray with one heart and mind. #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Walk in the light

7′ Christmas tree made for tomorrow’s All Age Worship – it’s only taken me and my wife 4 hours! To be decorated with transforming prayer baubles and a big present from God. ‘Come, let us walk in the light of the Lord!’ #curatecrafts #thoughtsfromswallowbarn


Wonderful amidst the autumnal colours last Thursday on my morning prayer walk at St Ives on my rest day. #morningprayer #thoughtsfromswallowbarn
