Epiphany Retreat: Eyes Wide Open
11th January, 6:00 pm to 13th January, 2:00 pm£225
** THIS RETREAT IS NOW FULL – SORRY **
Join us on this retreat with Launde’s Deputy Warden, Chris Webb.
In this retreat we’ll explore the ways God constantly reveals himself to us in creation, in scripture, and in our day to day lives, and how we can respond to those revelations with enthusiasm and delight.
An epiphany is a moment of sudden and tremendous revelation and realization, an experience that changes the way we see the world around us and our place in it. During this retreat we’ll consider some of the great revelations of God in the past and the epiphanies given to each of us from time to time. We also reflect on ways we can prayerfully respond with generosity of spirit to these gifts of God “so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened,” as Paul writes, we can experience “the immeasurable greatness of his power for us.” (Ephesians 1)
Chris Webb is Deputy Warden of Launde Abbey and Diocesan Spirituality Adviser to the Diocese. An Anglican priest and member of a Benedictine new monastic community, he has ministered in a wide variety of contexts: as president of a spiritual formation ministry in the USA, as parish priest in Welsh farming communities and steelworking towns, and even in a church for the homeless. He is the author of two books: The Fire of the Word (2011) and God-Soaked Life (2017).
There will be opportunities for silence during this retreat, and a silent dining option for those who wish it.
