On this Sunday, we celebrate kindness and reflect on how it has changed our days. We will have activities to help us bring small acts of kindness into our community.
Have you ever gone for a walk to clear your head so that you can focus and make an important decision? Have you ever felt you needed to be alone for a time, to see the truth or to let something new in you be born? If so, then you have probably been to the desert, the spiritual desert.

Humans can navigate by the stars, by following a river, the location of the sun or which side of the trees moss grows. We find our way with maps, compasses, wisdom and experience. We use topographical maps, street maps, and maps in our neural pathways. How many kinds of navigation do you use in a day and is True North the destination?
What does the great modern myth of The Wizard of Oz, tell us about the human journey? We must all set off into the unknown, dodge dangers, find helpers along the way and navigate new territory.
