Quiet Day: The Poetry of Prayer
4th March, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm£30
A Quiet Day with Matt Long, Novice Guardian at the new Community of the Tree of Life in Leicester.
Prayer is Poetic. It’s finding words, pictures and metaphors to frame our experiences and name the divine in the details. In poetry we describe what’s going on around us; in prayer we begin to inhabit the words we declare. Be Poetic.
Matt trained in Theology, Youth and Community Work and served in two churches before moving to France as a missionary, living in a Christian community on an old cider farm in Normandy. He has a passion for creative prayer and has co-ordinated the Prayer House at Spring Harvest and Youthwork the Conference. He is currently the Novice Guardian, and a member of the management team at The Community of the Tree of Life in Leicester.
