At the beginning of the course we were asked to look back at our Christian journey, considering events that had happened to us and people who’d helped us on the way. It was a really good exercise to do and one of the ways it suggested you do it was to see your life as a river and to draw how that river had flowed. It’s a good job it was a creative piece of work as I realised at one point I had a river going uphill rather than down! However it allowed me to see what had led me to this point on my journey of faith, the highs and the lows, and to consider what I hoped for the future.
Over the year that followed we met regularly and were challenged to look at things in new ways. It broadened my mind in many ways. It was a privilege to share the journey with the other people. As we journeyed we learnt more about each other. We were all quite different but, most important of all, we made time for God and we shared together in a journey of discovery that encouraged and deepened our faith.
