May Quiet Day

13th May, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm


‘Between Two Worlds’ – Led by Deputy Warden, Revd Chris Webb.

“Humans are amphibians – half spirit and half animal,” writes C. S. Lewis in the Screwtape Letters. “As spirits, they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time.” The days between Ascension and Pentecost, between Christ’s return to heaven and the Spirit’s descent to earth, offer a perfect opportunity for us to reflect on the life we live between these two worlds: citizens of the eternal kingdom and inhabitants of this created world.

During this Quiet Day, we’ll reflect on the closing of Luke’s Gospel and the opening of Luke’s second book, the Acts of the Apostles, exploring the seams and crossovers between time and eternity. We’ll also have plenty of time for silence, prayer, stillness, walking, rest and the enjoyment of Launde’s grounds, together with the warm hospitality and wonderful food for which Launde is so renowned.

Revd Chris Webb
