    Small in Gwynedd

    What wonderful light over Llandecwyn. Gorgeous setting, uphill a few short miles from where I once lived, with the tides of Tremadog Bay shining to the horizon below.

    I've been learning about Jim Cotter's project, Small Pilgrim Places, a simple idea about opening the doors of small little-used churches and chapels, chapels and crypts within larger churches and cathedrals, offering their space to people on or off the edge of the churches, or those bruised by condemnations from the churches, or those asking questions about the kind of God they might be able to believe in, for simple hospitality, quiet prayer, or thoughtful conversation.

    Llandecwyn's the pilot for this project, and Jim's been inviting folk to sign up to support it. It's beginning to gather people. I'm interested, not least because I'm drawn to that place itself. But also I'm drawn to what it's about.

    And it's made me consider another thing - to those who've worried themselves about the title of this blog, no longer strictly accurate since I became a priest-in-charge - how about this for a new one: NOTES FROM A SMALL PILGRIM? Watch this page.
