Programme

Book of blessings

11–15 November 2024 (Mon–Fri)

Anyone can work with God to bless others. It comes out of kindness and opens us up to the work of the Holy Spirit. Blessing touches someone’s soul to draw out hidden fruit. It builds confidence, vision, opening righteous possibilities and transformation, releasing gifts that have been imprisoned. The deep desire to bless others has resurrection power that activates energy between being and becoming. We will explore how we can work with God in blessing and make creative reminders of blessings using simple calligraphy and constructing beautiful keepsakes using simple bookbinding. Limited to 16 places.
