Francis of Assisi – Poverty into joy

St-Francis-of-Assisi-Stigmata

 

This evening we have the fourth session of our Lent course with us looking at the writings of Francis of Assisi. We will be particularly thinking about how he incorporated poverty into his spirituality and developed an incarnational theology, which spread into a love of the whole of Creation.

The session will begin at 7pm and should last about one hour with Compline following, and will be repeated on Friday after the 10:30 BCP Holy Communion.

It would be great to see you there, though each session is designed to be independent, so if you cannot make them all do not worry!

Julian of Norwich – All Shall be Well

julian-of-norwich

 

This evening we have the third session of our Lent course with us looking at the writings of Julian of Norwich. We will be particularly thinking about how she incorporated suffering into her spirituality and developed an apophatic theology. We will also be looking at centring prayer and using objects as anchors for these prayers.

The session will begin at 7pm and should last about one hour with Compline following, and will be repeated on Friday after the 10:30 BCP Holy Communion.

It would be great to see you there, though each session is designed to be independent, so if you cannot make them all do not worry!
