Retreat into the Psalms

25th October 2021, 3:00 pm to 28th October 2021, 2:00 pm


The Psalms are words of the people of God to God. They are as applicable to us now as when they were first written. They can often give us words when we cannot find the words ourselves. They speak into our joys and into our sorrows. They speak of the majesty, agency and love of God. The Psalms seem particularly relevant at this unprecedented time of disorientation as we journey through complex global trauma

The Psalms take us on a journey that is similar to the Holy Week narrative which moves from the orientation of Palm Sunday, through the disorientation of Good Friday and liminality of Holy Saturday, to the reorientation of Easter Sunday.

In this retreat we will be creatively exploring and praying this journey through the Psalms using word, image, art, craft, music and the retreat house grounds and surrounds.

Chris Knight was a research scientist for many years until he changed direction after completing a PhD in Apologetics. He worked in the area of apologetics for a number of years, before leading on the teaching of doctrine at Lincoln School of Theology. He is married to Rhona and they have three grown sons. He enjoys bird watching and photography.

Rhona Knight was a GP and medical educator for 25 years before she was ordinated in the Church of England. She led on teaching pastoral care at Lincoln School of Theology and currently teaches on ministering in times of trauma. Her latest publication is a Grove Booklet on Mission in a Time of Trauma. She is a spiritual director and pastoral supervisor.
