‘We are meant not only to pull the drowning people from the raging river; we are meant to walk back upstream and find out why they’re falling in’ Desmond Tutu
As Christians, our calling is to seek justice, with humility and compassion. So if we walk back upstream, what do we find along the riverbank? As we witness our brothers and sisters falling in, jumping in, being thrown in – what should be our response?
There will be three main sessions on the Saturday. Full details will follow when available.
Holland House is a Retreat, Conference and Laity Centre. The main building is a beautiful old Tudor building, with well-kept gardens on the banks of the River Severn, in the picturesque village of Cropthorne, Worcestershire.
