Charismatic and Contemplative
2nd September, 4:00 pm to 5th September, 2:00 pm£315
A unique retreat experience with David Newman.
Charismatic (or Pentecostal) spirituality has had a huge impact on the church and renewed experiences of the grace and immediate presence of God. But strengths can also be weaknesses and raised expectations have sometimes led to a consumer mentality, and disappointment and confusion if those expectations have not been met.
On this retreat we will explore how contemplative prayer can complement what charismatic experience has given to the church and deepen and grow our understanding and experience of God.
David Newman has been Warden of Launde Abbey since March 2017. Before coming to Launde, David was the Vicar of Emmanuel Church, Loughborough and then Archdeacon of Loughborough. He has led numerous retreats and courses at Launde in recent years and has a deep love of the place.
