Ripples of Hope – a midweek Pause for Peace

We’ve been practising a midweek Pause for Peace for eight months.

So what’s the story we’re telling ourselves? What difference can it possibly make…

In one sense, that’s the wrong question – we’re not doing this because we have the power to make change.

Instead, we’re choosing to stand with those who desperately need peace. Choosing to be part of the flow of hope.

Because, like a ripple, we are part of a bigger movement.


I would love to live
Like a river flows,
Carried by the surprise
Of its own unfolding.

+ John O’Donohue, from ‘Conamara Blues’, Bantam Books, 2001


Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
