Eucharist on the Mountain


To celebrate the start of Season of Creation and the World Day of Prayer for Creation, the Diocesan Environmental Group (Cape Town) held a beautiful Eucharist on Table Mountain.

An intrepid group of about sixty people of all ages led by Rev Shaun Cozett joined the service with a difference!
We gathered and read the first reading where Moses met with God on the mountain , present in the burning bush and we spent sometime considering our walk with God.

Then a hike followed to a waterfall, where after the reading we meditated and gave thanks for those who journey with us on our life walk.

Next a steep uphill reminded us that life is not always easy but with the support of others we will arrive. The gospel reading reminded us that God may be calling us to do things that are difficult – will we accept or will we say like Peter “not on my watch!”

And finally we reached an amazing spot overlooking the whole city where we shared at the Table of the Lord in God’s Sanctuary – the Earth.

We could not have come to a more beautiful Cathedral of God’s beauty!
