It is related that one day they came upon Majnun sifting the dust, and his tears flowing down. They said, "What doest thou?" He said, "I seek for Layli." They cried, "Alas for thee! Layli is of pure spirit, and thou seekest her in the dust!" He said, "I seek her everywhere; haply somewhere I shall find her."

Seeking Layli - a second chance
How long will ye sleep? The second blast hath been blown on the trumpet. On whom are ye gazing? This is your Lord, the God of Mercy. (Baha'u'llah)
Well, if God was willing to sound the trumpet twice we shouldn't feel bad about inviting you to the St Marys region again.
We loved it so much last month we want to go back! This time we'll meet at St Patrick's Head reserve at 12 noon on Sunday 24th March. It is reputed to be beautiful place though the climb to the summit may be beyond many of us but we can always pop back to south Sister if we want to gaze on the views again.
To get to St Patrick's Head reserve get to St Mary's; take the A4 North East heading to St Mary's Pass signposted to St Helens. The turn off to the reserve is on the right within the town boundaries. Its actually called Irishtown road but the reserve signpost is more prominent. We will meet at the car park (assuming there is one) and have a walk, picnic and devotions.
Bring food, a willingness to at least tolerate and preferably join in some devotions, and a love of nature would help.
Hope to see you there.
