A spring of water
Another view of the round pool and statue at Parcevall Hall. There is a biblical quote etched into the paving stone, from John 4: 'A spring of water welling up to eternal life'.
The full quote is:
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
I have always found time spent at Parcevall, whether a few hours or a few days, has been a refreshing experience for me. I go back to normal life feeling more grounded, spiritually nourished and with a better perspective on things. I guess we all need to find places we can go to, or activities we can do, that have that effect on us. What is yours?
