Since last Spring, St Aldhelm’s, Bristol (our own church community) has been hosting the excellent “holy ground” series of talks and practical workshops on such diverse matters as climate and the environment; the spirituality of the workplace; creative arts and meditation; and drama and storytelling (follow the “agora” link at the side of this page). Last night’s final event was led by the wonderful John Bell (hero of mine!), from the Iona Community, under the heading of “politics, passion and the human soul”. I’d seen/listened to him twice before at Greenbelt and yesterday’s session was completely riveting, truly inspirational and profoundly challenging – I think he should be the next Prime Minister!
