Open Doors: Ways to Peace, Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire


On 22 September 2018 Scilla gave a talk at the Open Doors: Ways to Peace event at Tintern Abbey, Monmothshire.

“My first experience of giving a talk on peace in the pouring rain to a wonderful audience in the remains of the medieval Tintern Abbey partially destroyed by Henry the VIII in 1536.  I was so cold that a lady in the first row offered me her white woolly mittens, and when she saw me still shivering she pulled out her hot water bottle.  So I finished my talk clutching the hot water bottle and feeling comforted.”
