Quiet Day: Mother Julian’s Vision of Love
1st May 2023, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm£44
We try to avoid offering our popular Quiet Days on Bank Holiday Mondays but this May presents a bit of a challenge- there are three Bank Holidays! So we’re offering our usual Quiet Day on the first Monday of the month because we know that many folks rely on having an opportunity to escape to the beautiful serenity of Launde for a day with God.
Towards the end of the fourteenth century Mother Julian of Norwich had a vision of Christ crucified which shaped the rest of her life – and has been deeply influential on the lives of countless others since. She came to understand her vision as a revelation of God’s boundless and irresistible love for all creation: “He has made everything that has been made for love.”
During this Quiet Day we’ll ponder together a few small parts of Julian’s vision and explore the impulse of love underlying them all. And, of course, we’ll take time to pray and worship, and immerse ourselves in plenty of silence and stillness.
The Quiet Day will be led by The Revd Chris Webb, Deputy Warden of Launde Abbey.
Chris Webb is an Anglican priest, author, speaker and teacher dedicated to helping people experience a richer walk with God by growing in prayer and the spiritual life. He has ministered in a wide variety of contexts: as president of Renovaré, 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. Chris is the author of two books: The Fire of the Word (2011) and God-Soaked Life (2017).
Quiet Day price: £44 includes lunch and coffee and tea throughout the day.
