“Homecoming: the creative work of becoming yourself” – Sue Grimmett will be facilitating a Quiet Morning at St Matthew’s Holland Park, Saturday 17 August, 9:00am-12:00 midday. All welcome. Through scripture, poetry and guided meditation, Sue will facilitate a morning that will help participants step aside from ‘doing’ and attend to ‘being’. It will be a few hours dedicated to the ongoing contemplative work of becoming the person you desire to be and already are when you rest in the kindness of God. It is also an adventurous task, where your joy meets the Spirit’s delight in the creative act of coming home to your truest self.

On the Way episode 35: The Theatre of Life – What do William Shakespeare and the Church have in common? Perhaps it is to do with the big questions explored and in the way, at their best, they both address the human condition, hold a prophetic role in society and speak truth in both direct and mythological forms. Dr Rob Pensalfini joins the podcast to talk with Dom, Peter and Sue about some of these biggest questions, tracking the ways theatre and the church have evolved and what this reveals about the passion and pathos of the human condition. Rob is Associate Professor of linguistics and drama at the University of Queensland and Artistic Director of the Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble. https://omny.fm/shows/on-the-way/on-the-way-the-theatre-of-life.
