Saturday Quiet Day: Walk In The Light

27th May 2023, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm


Walk In The Light

This Quiet Day presents an opportunity to discover the work of the Holy Spirit in the human heart, according to the Fathers of the Eastern Church.

A Quiet Day for Pentecost, the day will invite participants to engage the heart through a morning session entitled ‘The Purifying Light’ and an afternoon session entitled ‘The Glorifying Light’.

The day will start and end with informal versions of Orthodox Morning and Evening Prayer.

Dr Jim Wellngton

Dr Jim Wellington is a member of the Antiochian Orthodox Church and will lead this Quiet Day.

For over forty years Jim was a Church of England priest. He holds a doctorate from the Archbishop’s Examination in Theology for a thesis relating to the origins of Jesus Prayer, an MPhil from the University of Nottingham and an MA from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. He is a conductor of retreats and quiet days on the Jesus Prayer and other aspects of spirituality.

Jim is the author of Christe Eleison! The Invocation of Christ in Eastern Monastic Psalmody c.350-450 (Berne: Peter Lang, 2015), Praying the Psalms with Jesus: A Journey of Discovery and Recognition (Cambridge: Grove Books, 2015), Beguiled by Jesus: Faith and the Language of Intimacy (Cambridge: Grove Books, 2017)., and Journeying with the Jesus Prayer (Oxford: SLG Press, 2020).
