John and Hilary were our hosts for our lunch this month. There was a superb array of food for our delectation and some especially fine puddings.

We began our session with an excerpt from Tangled, where Rapunzel having finally escaped from her tower is confused and conflicted about how she feels.

This led us into a discussion about the future of GraceSpace and Colin’s announcement that his contract would not be renewed and that he had been appointed as Vicar of St Cuthbert’s Wrose. There was a discussion of the possible futures for GraceSpace and in particular about the possibilities of a future connection with St Cuthbert’s. Colin produced a letter explaining the events leading up to the present day – you can download the text here:

GraceSpace Future

The response of the community was wonderfully supportive and positive about the future. We concluded our session with the intro from Star Trek TNG. This changes the original text from a ‘five year mission’ to a ‘continuing mission’ to explore new worlds and to boldly go where no one has gone before. So perhaps God is offering us a new future.

Our thanks go to everyone for their kind support and to John and Hilary for the use of their home.
