Lullabies of Longing & Loss

A Global Perspective of Mothers’ Voices

Please join us for a special International Women’s Day event where we will welcome musician, storyteller and peacemaker Hanna Yaffe for an evening of storytelling and song.
Hanna will share with us
– Anecdotes from her life as a religious woman taking small steps towards peace in Israel/Palestine,
– Stories from Hasidic sources as well as stories from other cultures with a similar message,
– Lullabies in English, Hebrew, Yiddish and German drawing in particular on those about living peacefully with people from another religion/culture, and
– Tales from her research into multicultural lullabies, focusing on Kenyan, Arabic and Vietnamese.
You can find out more about Hanna’s use of lullabies to emphasise our shared humanity on her website. www.lullabies-of-loss.org

About Hanna:
Living the life of a would-be ardent peacemaker, Hanna Yaffe uses music and stories to create healing, love and blessing. “Lullabies from Jerusalem” and “Birth in a Time of Bloodshed” are Hanna’s award winning CD’s. She has attempted to be a humanist and spiritual peace activist since her teens.
Born in London, she practices an observant Jewish lifestyle, regularly leading prayers at her Synagogue, and teaching traditional Jewish chants. She has performed at the Edinburgh Festival of Spirituality, The World Parliament of Religions, St Ethelburga’s and numerous other venues in the UK and abroad.
She lives in Jerusalem with her husband, and near seven wonderful grandchildren.

2018 Coventry Pilgrimage

March 31, 2018

Saturday 31st March 2018

2018 COVENTRY PILGRIMAGE

To be a pilgrim is to undertake a journey with a spiritual purpose. We invite you to walk some or all of the Coventry Pilgrimage route in 2018. Please go to the www.cov100.org website for the specific walk information and starting location details.

What is it?
We will walk the almost 50 mile route, circling Coventry from church to church around the Coventry Way footpath and reaching the Cathedral down the Sherbourne Valley Way. We will walk a section of about 4 to 6 miles on the last Saturday morning of each month for 9 months from Easter Eve, March 31st, to the Eve of Christ the King, November 24th.

Details of the walk for each month, guidance about where to park and suggestions for convenient places for lunch at the end of each walk will appear on the Diocesan Centenary website www.cov100.org month by month. (The churches on the route may or may not be open for pilgrims so please check month by month.)

Who is it for?
Anyone, church-goer or not, who wants to pray Christ’s peace and blessing where we walk and on Coventry. Particularly welcome are all who work, volunteer or worship on Hill Top or around the route. Pilgrims walk at their own risk. Under 16s welcome but must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Well-behaved dogs welcome.

How do I get involved?
Just turn up. No need to register. Because the walks are linear not circular, if possible arrange transport in a group, sharing cars and leaving a car at your destination, before driving to the starting point. There will be a few lifts back to the starting point for stranded drivers if needed. Wear trainers, walking boots or sturdy shoes and bring a waterproof and some water. Bring a flask and a snack if you like.
