FOLLOWING JESUS THROUGH THE FOUR GOSPELS
Alan and Clare Amos were invited to lead the Swiss Archdeaconry Retreat. Abandoned for some years because of lack of participants, it was encouraging that about 20 people from across Switzerland made their way to the mountains above Thun for the weekend.
We arrived in bright late-summer sunshine and woke the following morning to snow. The cold was more than compensated for by the warm welcome of the chef and owner of Kurhaus, Grimmiealp.
Clare never ceases to amaze with her knowledge and insights into the Bible, but her presentation of the three Synoptic Gospels in one day was a ‘tour de force’ which exceeded even her normal high standard. Alan led us through St John’s Gospel, using pictures and icons to illustrate his themes and was our versatile pianist, also leading us in our final Eucharist on Sunday.
