Whether we go take a holiday or not, summer breaks in August affect us all as the pace of life shifts a little. This is a welcome change from our over-busy lives. Often we live at double time. Speed and compulsive behaviours numb us to our own experience and it's almost impossible to stay connected with our hearts and who we really are. Much of what is most important and valuable in life we can see only when we slow down. You are welcome at St Edmundsbury Cathedral to have a break from the relentless pace and to be still and know God's presence with you.
