The Sermon on the Mount: a spirituality for today
28th January, 4:00 pm to 31st January, 2:00 pm£335
A retreat led by Mike Harrison.
This retreat will focus on the relevance of Jesus’ teaching for us here and now, asking, what does he say? How are we to make sense of his teaching? And what are the consequences for our daily life? There will be plenty of space for stillness and silence, for discussion and even the odd film.
Mike Harrison has been Bishop of Dunwich, Suffolk since 2016 and prior to that was Director of Mission and Ministry in the Diocese of Leicester from 2005 to 2016. After university he spent a formative period at a church in Deptford, London exploring a variety of different options. He was a lay-worker for the church, a management consultant in the City and an unqualified social worker for Lewisham Borough Council. He decided to test an ordained vocation and served his curacy in South Lambeth, London. During this time he also studied for a PhD in Christian doctrine at King’s College, London. Mike is married to Rachel and they have been blessed with 4 children. He supports Bolton Wanderers and other lost causes.
Early bird price: £315 if booked before October 31st 2018.
