We had a great time at Greenbelt this year. The Sky Chapel looked beautiful ( Thanks to Tony Cook for making it for us). We wrote some words from Calvin Seerveld on the front, based on Psalm 19:
The heavens are telling the glory of God;
the very shape of starry space makes news of his handiwork.
God set up a tent for the sun at the ends of the earth
have you seen the sun?! beaming forth like a bridegroom from his marriage-bed
On the inside we had poem written by Clare Birch
Hush the velvet sky, the world falls away
and we are left
tiny and significant
searching worlds we barely comprehend
and finding only wonder
tonight I gaze again, alone.
Do you see it still, the starry canopy
shaken out to cloak the shivering earth?
From above, beyond, within,
do the skies still call you
still cover you
leaking light into the darkness of your sleep?
Hush the velvet sky
the world falls away
and we are left…
We also lead a service on the Sunday, titled Children of God, we had a good number of people attending, one little boy told his dad
“I didn’t know it was going to be that good!”
