This Quiet Day will look deeply at the unity and inter-connection of life.
With attention and compassion, we will reflect on what remains unreconciled in our lives, both personally and collectively, past or
present. From this context, the day will invite us to notice what is asking for our attention and explore how our inner work gives energy and
wisdom for the outer work of action toward reconciliation.
A spacious time of silence and reflection will allow participants to make
connections between our personal and national story, in solidarity with National Reconciliation Week, 27 May – 3 June, which carries the
theme: “More than a word. Reconciliation takes action.”
Dr Heather Thomson is a theologian who taught for many years at St Mark’s National Theological Centre, retiring in 2014. Heather is an experienced
