Hope

It was very humbling to lead today’s faith assembly for KS2 at Haworth Primary School and to think of #Hope being represented by the first candle on the #Advent Wreath. The children talked about so many things they were hopeful for: time with friends and family, care for the environment, more help for endangered animals… Such a lovely bunch of kids. #Faith #Assembly #ThoughtsFromSwallowBarn

Webs

Spotted some amazing spider’s webs this morning outside Lees Primary School after doing this week’s faith assemblies. #ThinSpaces #ThoughtsFromSwallowBarn

Hike

It’s a while since I’ve been on a #NightHike for #EveningPrayer. So blessed to live so close to #Thornton #Moor. #ThinSpaces #ThoughtsFromSwallowBarn

Leaves

Wonderful to be back in the #Forest. This tree is reluctant to recognise the arrival of #Autumn. #ThinSpaces #Sabbath #ThoughtsFromSwallowBarn

Sabbath

Where would you go to begin a slightly extended day off? #sWhere would you go to begin a slightly extended day off? #sabbath #rest #thinspaces #thoughtsfromswallowbarnabbath #rest #thinspaces #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Beautiful

Beautiful even in the rain at St Ives in Bingley. One of my favourite #thinspaces for #prayer #thoughtsfromswallowbar

Raindrops

On today’s #dogwalk along Old Sawood Lane, amazingly the mist gave way to rain under the trees. I imagine that the water must have been condensing on the trees and forming raindrops. Such a wonderful #creation we live in. So many #surprises and #thinspaces for #prayer. #thoughtsfromswallowbarn.

Contemplative

Good #contemplative walk for #morningprayer using #lectio365. Father, help me to live this day to the full, being true to you, in every way. Jesus, help me to give myself away to others, being kind to everyone I meet. Spirit, help me to love the lost, proclaiming Christ in all I do and say #amen #thinspaces #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Autumnal

A beautiful end to a beautiful autumn afternoon full of autumn colours. #thinspaces #thoughtsfromswallowbarn

Sunset

It’s been a wonderful week, full of contrasts. Gales last night; the perfect sunset tonight. #thinspaces #thoughtsfromswallowbarn
