Caroline Tyler – 19th September 2021 This week Caroline Tyler brings us a talk titled ‘Healthy self-care. Exploring ancient wisdom from the psalms’ and looks at Psalm 1, particularly focusing on vs2-3. Looking after ourselves is an important part of everyday life and it includes our mind, body and spirit. Caroline gives us a vivid picture of a tree planted by a river, its roots spreading far and wide to gather up water and nourishment. Without the water the tree would not survive. Caroline draws out three points: • We are to attend to our roots – feeding regularly from the ‘Water of Life’. • Stay connected – God has planted us together to thrive, make time for each other. • Don’t worry about the lack of fruit – when the season is right there will be fruit. Stay hopeful.
