We are the Four Winds. We honour the four directions
The Circle of life. We name, the South, the West, the North, and the East.
In New Grange, the Hill of Tara and many more sacred sites that circumnavigate the globe there are places of Solar alignment with the rising sun of the four seasons.
We are the four winds, where God speaks through the voice of the prophet. “I will bring them out”;
To reign, provide opportunity to shepherd and be the sovereign.
I will seek the lost, to nurture and be tenderness. I will be shepherd, warrior, defend, armed with compassion and the staff of hope.
The eyes of heart enlightened. Jesus is lord!
When I was hungry you gave me food. All the nations panta ta ethne, pursue justice. I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
We are the four wind, to share with strangers, the hungry, thirsty, the nake.
We are the four winds, living relationship with God, triumph of life, expression and experience of God’s love.
