So what's this Holy Spirit all about?

Hello, So, what was I doing at the top of the Malvern Hills I can hear you all ask… How you look at the world and see your place in it, might depend on where you look from; how things are framed for you. Or indeed how you choose to frame things. Over the last few weeks I have undertaken a number of journeys and visited some very inspiring places. Some I had been to before, and others not. I’m not sure what I expected to find, but I did find perhaps what I needed most; catharsis. Recently a question was asked of me; “where did you find God this week?”. An odd question perhaps, but a question asked, no doubt, with purpose. Did God speak from the stories illustrated in the stained glass of Lichfield Cathedral, the monumental architecture of Worcester Cathedral, the beauty and history of Great Malvern Priory? Or was Gods presence found in the awesome music and grandeur of Hereford or Gloucester Cathedrals? A happy person might say Yes! Yes, God was there! A blessed person might think, I did find God there. A simple person might say, I know God was there, because I took God with me. It depends how you choose to see things, every ‘cathedral’ has its setting. Sat by the river, in among the trees, take God with you wherever you go... Andrew.
