One of a series of day retreat’s on offer throughout 2019, working with the teachings of Fr Richard Rohr, Franciscan Friar, author and leader of the Centre for Action and Contemplation.
Led by Rev’d Ian Spencer these retreats are based on themes from Rohr’s book of daily meditations “A Spring within us”.
Theme for today is “Image of God – let God be who God is” As Christmas begins to loom on the horizon, what does it mean to realise the “image of God” in our lives ?
Rohr writes “for most of human history, God was not a likable, much less a lovable character – which is why so much Biblical narrative begins “do not be afraid”. What have humans done to the image of God ? How did it become such an angst-filled image for so many ? And what can we do to restore its truth in both our own lives, and in the lives of others ?
Each day will include a short act of worship, teaching, discussion and free time to practice/consider what we’ve learned.
The day will conclude at 4.00pm with afternoon tea.
Cost £38 and includes morning coffee, 2 course lunch and afternoon tea.
