On Saturday 28 November young people from the Western Cape joined in a Taize Pilgrimage of Trust at Volmoed Retreat Centre. The day was full of refreshing and fulfilling activities such as a time of self-reflection, a Walk to the Waterfall and prayers. Due to the COVID pandemic numbers were limited at Volmoed, however more tuned into the Zoom feed as we did the prayer services.
The day consisted of several group workshops, one of which was Care for Creation led by the Green Anglicans team. During this time the group looked at what “Shalom” under Creation looked like and what we as Christians are called to do as instruments of God’s peaceful tribe. We also had a time of soaking in the nature that surrounded us and finding God in nature.
At the end Rev Wilma and Rev Edwin shared about a dream which they have had since the 1980’s of having young people on a Taize Pilgrimage to Volmoed. This year that dream has finally come true . The day ended off with evening prayer.
