Reflections by Margaret Silf

This video series, by Margaret Silf, offers image and text reflections and prayer on life’s journey, which are inspired by the natural landscapes that we encounter in our lives.

There are 10 episodes in this series and Margaret has provided a special introduction to the entire series, as well as to the individual episodes.

Each episode runs for approximately 10–15 minutes and includes Margaret’s introduction to the theme of the specific episode, followed by guided voice-over reflections from Margaret, which are supported with images.

Following this, there is a brief period for personal reflection and prayer. This concludes with a prayer led by Margaret and the video ends with some of the key points of the reflection listed for further ongoing reflection and prayer.
