We are sadly as a chaplaincy team saying goodbye to Barbara who is retiring at the end of December, so this is her final podcast. In it she reflects on Angels and especially the message of the Angel Gabriel to Mary, that it was delivered with kindness and gentleness qualities our society so much still needs today.
Barbara reflects on the importance of really listening, paying attention and not having to fill fill the silences with words. It is not just about acquiring techniques but giving the person we are with their full worth and value.
Fiona reflects on the start of the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference, on not just the huge responsibility of world governments to be radical, but the challenge is to us too, what small changes in our own life styles can make a difference to climate change.
