A Place to be Real Together

Home at Othona


Tumbling and falling fast through a long, dark tunnel

I emerge, confused but exhilarated, into an explosion

Of glorious white light. Startled by its incandescence, I feel

a sense of wonder and awe. A persuasive force

Propels me forward; shadowy figures obscure the scene

but I am pulled irresistibly towards the source of its brilliance:

Peace and joy flood my entire mind and body.

As the scenes of my life unravel before me, I am filled

With the beautiful realisation that

the Light is me and I am the Light;

And my soul remembers: I am come Home.


Poem by Caroline Cameron

This is the poem that closed our February One World Worship - written and recited by our own core member, Caroline Cameron. The theme for the evening was 'Home'. We shared our experiences, questions and feelings about home - and homelessness. And those who chose to lit a candle for people and places for whom we wished to send our support and love. It was a beautiful and thought-provoking evening - as is often the case at One World Worship!

Do join us for this monthly gathering for spiritual reflection and a shared soup supper. If you would like to be kept informed of upcoming themes, please sign up for our Newsletter. Everyone welcome!
