Seventeen participants from seven MUA congregations enjoyed a rich day of sharing and learning at Kingswood Meeting House on Saturday 4th March. In the four sessions, led respectively by Sue Woolley, Cressida Pryor, Diane Rutter, and Simon Hall, we learned about Flower Communion, Earth Spirit Communion, Free Christian Communion, and Water Communion.
What made the day so special was that not only did the session leaders explain the background to each type of communion ritual, we also had the chance to participate in them. The weather was kind, and the Earth Spirit Communion session could take place outside, which added a whole extra dimension to it.
There was also time for questions and comments, and everyone learned something new. Grateful thanks to all the session leaders, and to the participants, for being so open-minded and open-hearted.
