Annual Summer Celebration

Annual Summer Celebration
At St Ethelwold’s House yesterday they had the annual summer celebration. Visitors enjoyed tea and cakes in the garden, and some joined in circle dancing, followed by a time in the Sanctuary – celebrating the cycle of life that came into being in the spring, reaches its height of glory in summer, and then dies at harvest. Somebody quoted “‘Where there is light, there must be shadow, where there is shadow there must be light.”

Mark’s wildflower meadow at the bottom of the garden is named after a young man who died last year under tragic circumstances. The Prime Minister admitted the government were wrong to cut his benefits. And Atos, the company in charge of assessing whether a lot of vulnerable people like Mark should return to work or not, have lost their government contract because of the way they have mishandled cases.

I see from the St Ethelwold’s Blog that Mark loved nature, and the garden. He even had an art exhibition in the Garden Room in 2005.

    As the Church pointed out this Government has blood on it’s hands. It has hounded the vulnerable and disabled whilst giving tax cuts to the very wealthy. Poor Mark my heart goes out to him. Very healthy people find it hard to get a job now let alone the disadvantaged and disabled. Jobs now go to the thousands of Eastern Europeans who have come into the country but the Government blame the unemployed and people who cannot get jobs. Well Germany did the same and hounded the Jews. With this Government it is the disabled and unemployed.
