Clouds of Witnesses

Invitation to share in writing your short story about someone who has been important to you.

What a wonderfully diverse group of people we are here at Christ Church—in age, in place of birth, in language background—and all growing in our understanding and appreciation of what being a Christian, and an Anglican, means for us here in this city in 2020, individually and as parish. Inevitably we don’t usually have much opportunity to share our thoughts and experiences at a deep level. But we have all had people in our lives who have been important to us, places that we have lived in or visited that have affected us deeply, journeys (actual and inner)have shaped us. We are being invited to share these with one another in writing and hopefully grow more closely together in the process. First we are being invited to write about a person who has had an influence on our lives, either in person or through books or other media. Our contributions will be published as a booklet and on the cathedral website. This first booklet will be titled Clouds of Witnesses (see Hebrews 12:1, commenting on Hebrews 11). Please tell us about one such person in your life, in about 500 – 800 words. Send it by email to the cathedral office or write it down and give it the clergy or the usher in church by the end of July. And we will hope to have the booklet published at the end of August. Looking forward to reading it. Vivienne
