August Quiet Day: Presenting our lives to God
2nd August, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm£35
A day contemplating the phrase written by Paul in Romans 12:1 and enshrined in the Prayer of Oblation in the Church of England Book of Common Prayer.
People often use the term, “What you see is what you get.” It is shorthand for ‘I may be a plain-speaking rough diamond, but I have no hidden agenda – let my reputation precede me’, in the same way that people used to say ‘take me as you find me’. On this Quiet Day Revd Andrew Hall will work with this phrase, unpacking what it means and what we really offer to the Lord, when we utter these words.
The day closes with a Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion, which will enable our oblation to be a suitable sacrifice, enriching our soul, mind and body.
Rev. Andrew Hall is Rector of Burbage with Aston Flamville; Andrew is a Spiritual director and Retreat leader, a contemplative soul, who likes gardening, reading and sports. “My heart is to be a ‘cure of souls’ as my priestly vocation implies; spending time with pilgrims is one of life’s greatest callings and I am honoured that God has called me to this life.”
Yes – I’d like to take part in this Quiet Day!
