February Newsletter

Dear Friends, Well,….MK has reached the grand old age of 50! January 23rd is the anniversary of the designation of the new town and it was greeted with all sorts of celebrations across the city.

There will, of course, be all sorts of events throughout the year, so if you missed the anniversary, there’s still plenty left with which to get involved. You...

Gethin Abraham-Williams

It is with great sadness we pass on the news that Gethin Abraham-Williams died peacefully in the early hours of Sunday. Gethin was Executive Secretary and Ecumenical Officer to the Milton Keynes Christian Council in its earliest days, which was the precursor to the Moderator. He considered that what he was doing in MK was the most exciting job in local ecumenism in Britain.

In an age of anxiety, where are we to find stillness? In a world of information, where are we to find wisdom? In a time of turmoil, where are we to find peace? In a material world, where do we find meaning? Look. Look. For from another age, from a half forgotten distant world, there comes an image, a door of perception, a window into God. Where we have exchanged art for the photograph and prayer for the experiment, there comes an icon to open up our soul. We recognise the scene; a mother embracing her child. And we know...
