We had a very special Chapel service this week taken by Jan Marshall, who shared her hopes for Othona. You can read some of this on our faithbook page (https://www.othonaessex.org.uk/faith-book). Please do submit your thoughts and prayers to go on this page.
O God may the doors of Othona be wide enough to receive all who need love and compassion.
But narrow enough to shut out any spirit of selfishness and self-interest.
May our threshold be smooth enough to be no stumbling block for children or straying feet, but strong enough to resist the power of disillusion and resentment.
So we may be a place for healing and restoration
