Take time out to reflect, be still, pause.
We have a growing collection of reflections, most of them based on events held
at St Mary's, Quarry Street, Guildford. You may also find the links on the Spirituality home page and Prayer Links and Resources page helpful.

NEW YEAR , FRESH START
Follow this link for some reflections from our New Years Eve series about:
how light is stronger than darkness;
walking in other peoples' shoes; and
the contrasting call to "go" and "be".
You may also find it helpful to reflect on the words below as an inspiration for how to live and a reminder that "God is with us".
Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly before your God. (Micah)
Seek the welfare of the city and in its welfare you will find your welfare (Jeremiah)
By far the greatest thing a man [or woman] can do for his city is to be a good man. Simply to live there as a good man, as a Christian man of action and practical citizen……It is goodness that tells, goodness first and goodness last. (from Celtic Daily Prayer)
May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm on your face. May the rains fall softly upon your fields until we meet again. May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
Old Gaelic blessing.
