Morning Bell: Unsuspected Joy


Our series UNSUSPECTED JOY features the work of French Jesuit priest and philosopher Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955.) In his own lifetime Teilhard’s writings were suppressed by the Catholic church, but subsequently have found renewed acceptance. At a time when the world feels increasingly unstable, unpredictable and dangerous, Teilhard’s sense that everything is moving towards a good fulfilment may be both welcome and challenging. His trust in the goodness of God and a growing sense of divine presence in all creation became for him a glorious, unsuspected joy.

Ian’s images for the series feature wind turbines along the A68 in the Borders – for us hopeful signs of human engagement with and care for the earth.

Grace and peace to you for the journey into stillness and action for a better world…
Ian & Gail
