Brooke Prentis and Lisa Wriley from The Wellspring Community and Ruth Harvey, leader of the Iona Community have now set off on their month long pilgrimage across the lands now called Australia.
They will spend time listening, learning and sharing reflections on the theme of ‘Care for Creation’ and we will share their reflections on our social media channels and on the Iona Community Learn webpage.
You can see the full itinerary of their pilgrimage on the homepage of the Wellspring Community website.
The image above was commissioned by the Wellspring Community for the pilgrimage and created by artist Kathryn Dodd Farrawell Gangari artist (grinding stone), Birri language, NQLD Kaanju, Cape York/Birri/Wirri Woman. She describes the work in her own words:
“The Blue Waters flowing in the Sands of Time. Connecting us all with Our Mother Earth.
Birthing us in Her many Colours to grow Together. Under the Sun, Moon and Stars
The two good Spirits look at the Heart of Our Mother Earth, Listening to the Harmony of Song
whilst Dancing in Life’s Poetry. To Listen with Care, Love and Justice to Act-with Creation and Peace”
