Safe Space | Set Sail | January 2007

A guest service at Grace, 12th January 2007.

A ship shape of candles.

St. Brendan and his monks sailed to Newfoundland in a leather currach in the 5th century.

Making marks in the sand, as a sign of commitment to travel - as St. Brendan prayed, "shall I leave the prints of my knees on the sandy beach, a record of my final prayer in my native land?"

 

 

 

Between the words 'set sail' is the cross of St. Brendan.
