For those who have far to travel

Letter from Janette:
 
If you could see
the journey whole,
you might never
undertake it, might never dare
the first step
that propels you
from the place
you have known
toward the place you know not.

This extract from a poem by Jan Richardson entitled ‘For those who have far to travel’, really speaks to me about the journey I have been on for the last 9 years.  But the place I ‘knew not’ has become the place I love and care for deeply.  That won’t change I know as I move on to pastures new at the beginning of February. Epiphany House is a remarkable place that has brought peace and healing to so many. It is not always possible for us to share the many stories of the effects visiting the House and its grounds can have on the pilgrim, the seeker, the broken, but I thank God for it. It is for many a ‘thin place’ where they find it easier to connect with God, and despite the fact I cannot really understand the theology of place, I have certainly witnessed it. It has been an immense privilege serving here for this exciting period in the House’s history. I leave knowing that there is a very faithful and devoted team (even though very small) to carry on the work.  In addition, the Trust are advertising for new staff to complete the team as they step forward into a New Season.
 
May you be blessed with peace and joy this Christmas and may 2022 bring you new blessings
