A note from Wild Goose
 

 

This is Oxfam Water Week and coming up is Refugee Week (20-26 June), so we remind you of some of our downloads that offer resources on these subjects.

Also, as we approach summer and ‘Ordinary Time’, take another look at Ruth Burgess’s book Bare Feet and Buttercups.

A World Full of Shelter (PDF download)

A short act of worship

Yvonne Morland

Digital download: Shelter, the need to feel safe, is a fundamental human need. Today thousands of people are fleeing into Europe seeking sanctuary – on the run from violence, terror, injustice. We cannot sit comfortably in our own places of shelter and not act to influence the shelter that is offered to those for whom it is a matter of survival. This liturgy offers an opportunity to reflect on shelter and what it means. 5 pages.
