When have you been led to a place of healing?

Greetings, Friends!

Minding the Light: Our Collective Journal is a publication of West Hills Friends, a Quaker meeting in Portland, Oregon. Using the guidelines of "worship sharing," we invite members and attenders to reflect on a specific query for each chapter.

Chapter 28 of Minding the Light is now available online and attached as a PDF file, below. For this chapter, we invited Friends to respond to the query, "When have you been led to a place of healing?  Tell us a story about your experience of a location that was healing or restorative to you."  In response, we received 8 stories and six photos. 

What stories rise for you as you sit this query? We invite you to read these stories and consider sharing your response on QuakerQuaker, either as a response to this post or in a blog post of your own.

There are links below to the West Hills Friends website and Minding the Light website, where all 28 chapters can be found.  There's also a link to a PDF version of Chapter 28.

Blessings!
Sally Gillette, Clerk
Story Committee

What a beautiful collection, Sally.  It reflects nicely on the deepness of your Quaker community.  Thank you for sharing it!

My experience is that every place and no place is a source of healing and restoration. The wonder and beauty of a conscious and conscience filled by the inshininng Light itself in itself is that I am healed and restored in all moments and places and circumstances.
