What makes Surrender so astonishing and wonderful? What allows such diverse groups to come together in reconciliation and renewal? This is a gathering born from years of friendship and conviviality. It is an event where diverse relationships of love and care, of prayerful listening and faithful presence have been fostered over the course of time. When new people like me come to this event, they are invited to join in with groups from every walk of life as they practice friendship led by the Spirit's grace. It is a life-changing miracle - it is called the family of God.
