Bring picnic for lunch with you  – we´ll also read the Gospel and have a short meditation. They promised good weather for the weekend and it should be really beautiful out there now.

Eastertime
Sometimes it´s too much circus about everything – so many different things becomes important. Then Jesus calls us back to essentials – at the last supper he reveils the true meaning of life, not as a mystery any longer, but in a simple act: He becomes the servant who washes the feet of the disciples, and tells the disciples to become the servant of one another. Wash each others feet! In this turbulent and difficult time for Church, for faith, let´s leave all the circus behind and gain this simplicity of the Gospel. Back to simple life! It´s a true challenge for us, we know so many things, want so many things, and yet, what he tells us is: Let me help you, help each others, be brothers and sisters, be simple, live a simple life.

Meditation is a an exercise in simplicity. To remain present in silent, to listen to the sounds around you. Just sitting and letting go of thoughts. Abstaining form action. Not exspecting anything. Just pronouncing the name “Jesus”.
This Saturday when we´re out in the forest we´ll do a kind of meditation, a Walking Meditation, walking quite slowly for 15 minutes together, being in presence of each other, of the birds, the sky, the trees, without reflecting or reacting. I assure you that this can be a valuable experience. I also sit meditating with some people in our chapel  for 30 minutes every Thursday at 4.30 – join some minutes before and I can give you some instructions.
Yours br Björn
