Space for the journey

Thomas Baldwin learns about a charity which is using outdoor spaces to help bring a faith perspective to times of change

“THERE’S something about the outdoors that offers itself to people at a lot of different levels. We become a bit softer and more open to ourselves.”

Andrew Hook is a facilitator for the Coracle Trust, a small Edinburgh-based charity which exists to bring a faith perspective to moments of transition in life – everything from the big changes around birth and death to starting secondary school and entering puberty or adulthood or middle age, getting married and significant anniversaries.

“There are a heck of a lot of transitions in life,” he says, “And we experience a lot of turbulence that we’re not very good at processing. So we are exploring what are the good ways to work with, rather than fight against, those transitions – and to recognise that often God’s hand is in them.”
