'Never give up on traditions or on God'

At the start of our annual Autumn Walk on May Hill, we were concerned as we had heard that so many of our usual visitors could not make it. We were wondering whether it was worth while carrying on and if we would cope. On the day, we had 10 walkers, five of whom had never been before. Although some may ask if it is worth it, especially with all the effort arranging these walks take. After this walk I can reassure you it was.

Whilst our steward and I led the walkers through the woods and on to May Hill Common, before taking them up to the summit of May Hill, where the five new walkers had never been, we were able to talk to each one individually. We then surprised them with the lovely spread of food which had been prepared by the ladies of the church whilst we were away.

At the end of the afternoon, each of them promised to be back for our Spring walk next year, and one couple who had just moved into the area said they would join us at our coffee mornings so they can meet other members of the community.

So if you think your old traditions are not working, please do not give up on them, as God could surprise you.
