I was on a great training day yesterday learning how to lead Quiet Days at Emmaus House. There was a lot of sharing of resources going on which was really useful. I have never attended many myself (and readers of this blog will not be at all surprised at that) so it can be tricky leading them.
And we made bread! For ages I’ve been trying to get someone to teach me the finer points of kneading and although we weren’t taught it, we all had a go (in silence of course) and I reckon this could be my new hobby. It was hot! I totally didn’t expect that. I wasn’t very good – not co-ordinated at all, but I reckon with a bit of practise I could do one-handed kneading like J. And at the end our little bread rolls were all placed on the altar and then we got to take it home. Some didn’t wait and started to scoff them there and then, warm as they were straight from the oven. However, mine was screaming “I need Lurpak” so I held off until I got home. Delicious!
Now I am on holiday for a week and then on a course in Windsor Castle, doncha know. I may blog, I may not.
