2012 Calendar: July
This month I am reading Paul's letter to the Ephesians, in a bit of a hurry as I go on retreat tomorrow. I'll be offline and out of circulation, in my little hermitage in Llannerchwen (click here to see their website, and the views and walks I will enjoy if it's not raining!). I'm looking forward to it, to the silence and space, and time for prolonged prayer and reflection, and being more in touch with my deepest desires. Retreats certainly have a way of bringing out my inner introvert!
So a shrub named after love... and a time for rooting myself in God... which means this month's quote is just a few lines from the most famous - and beautiful - part of Ephesians...
... that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of love. (3: 17-19)
