pentecost-feast2There was a select few of us at our community lunch this month. Several people had travelled to York for the service to welcome Bishop Nick as the new Bishop of Leeds.

There was an excellent lunch for us to share with all the usual trimmings. We all managed to sit around the table and enjoy some great food and conversation.

After lunch we ,moved to lounge for one of Colin’s more obscure teachings about the Holy Spirit. We thought about the concept of ‘Transformation’. It is a work of Holy Spirit to transform our fears and release our passion for God.  This idea was illustrated by the transformation scene in Shrek, where Princess Fiona reveals her true nature.

We also shared some scenes from the film Chocolat which showed how a whole community could be transformed. Judging ourselves not by what we reject but by who we love and include.
