August Quiet Day

5th August, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

£44

Gerard Manley Hopkins: a human life in a transfigured world.

For the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins, the world was both ‘charged with the grandeur of God’ and a place of suffering and lament. In his poetry, we are invited into a landscape of both the celebration and the lament of a life shot through with God’s presence. This day is an opportunity to reflect together on this rich and textured understanding of God’s world and our place in it. 

 

Carys Walsh

Carys works in discernment and formation in the Church of England. She has been a psychotherapist, taught in a theological college and has long been inspired by how poetry can open up to us the depths of faith, and she speaks and writes on this regularly. She is an associate priest in the Diocese of Peterborough.

Quiet Day price: £44 includes lunch and coffee and tea throughout the day.
