Chalice Well is a holy well situated at the foot of Glastonbury Tor in the county of Somerset, England. Archaeological evidence suggests that the well has been in almost constant use for at least two thousand years.
Christian mythology suggests that Chalice Well marks the site where Joseph of Arimathea placed the chalice that had caught the drops of Christ’s blood at the Crucifixion. In addition to the legends associated with Glastonbury, the Well is often portrayed as a symbol of the female aspect of deity, with the male symbolised by Glastonbury Tor. As such, it is a popular destination for pilgrims in search of the divine feminine, including modern pagans.
Revelation 22:1 (New King James Version)
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Father in heaven,
As Anglicans, we acknowledge our sins of not speaking out in the public square and failing to influence the public sector. Have mercy, Lord. Have mercy.
We cry out for the pure river of the water of life in Glastonbury. Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
May it be so in Glastonbury! Revive the church in Glastonbury that she may be holy and without blemish. Bless the Church of St John the Baptist and the Church of St. Benedict. Bless Rev. David MacGeoch, Rev. Sister Diana Greenfield, Rev. Robin Ray, and Lay Readers, Margaret Wynn, Larry Schenck and Andrew Pugh. We cry out for a proclamation of Your word troughout Somerset. Flow, river, flow over this land. Amen.
