Walk and Talk - 15 May Harden-Murrumburrah

Geoff and I 'Walked and Talked' on May 15 down the pretty main street of Harden Murrumburrah NSW. 

We didn't solve all the problems of the world - but we did discuss how we could support people in our lives for the better.

We did probe several subjects from family and parish communities, to our own lives. We found it a wonderfully worthwhile experience - just walking and talking about issues that are important to us.

And of couse after the walk we had a cuppa at the Terracotta restaurant - we chatted to some of the locals along the way and had a great afternoon.

Yes I hope we have made a few decisions that will change some lives for the better.
And we found it so worthwhile we have decided to have our own walk and talk each month to revisit issues we looked at on the 15th May between 2pm and 3pm.

I have spoken to six other friends who Walk-and-Talked and they also found it very rewarding and exciting.

Thanks for the initiative Fr John - we are looking forward to joining you again next year.

Walk and Talk in Paris

Merran and Peter joined the Cursillo Conversation in Mallorca with the Walk and Talk City with a Soul - the initative of Fr John Armstrong from Gowie ACT, Australia with a visit to Paris.
The following are Merran's comments on the day -
Hi John and Sue
Attaching our photo from 15 May, Walk and Talk.
Peter and I went to Mass at Notre Dame Cathedral, had lunch in one of the delightful little cafes and then did our Walk and Talk between 2pm and 3pm local time all around Ile de la Cite along the banks of the Seine, right in the centre of Paris. It was fine but windy and as you see I was having a bad hair day!
The whole trip including the Conversations in Mallorca was fantastic. Wonderful to visit so many places significant to the birth of Cursillo. Subsequently we stayed with a community of Marist brothers near Lyon in southern France and did a little pilgrimage to places associated with St Marcellin Champagnat their founder. It was an incredibly picturesque region. Paris was beautiful, as always! Talk about a City with a Soul - how blessed were we!
Love Merran
