Groups for Lent and beyond: ‘Gather up the fragments that nothing be lost’

Sunday 17th March 2019 - Sunday 14th April 2019

‘Gather up the fragments that nothing be lost’
with Bishop Martin Shaw
Sundays at 11.30am in the Pearson Room
(access from the Cloister Garden; lift access is available)

Bishop Martin will be enabling a group on Sunday mornings in Lent on the subject of Christian Meditation. Each session will include a short time of silence and a sharing in how the group members found the silence.

Sunday 17th March
An brief introduction to what Christian Meditation is. We look at an approach to reading which is meditative. Sometimes its called in Latin ‘Lectio Divina’. We will practice this approach to meditation, with the hope that we can take the practice into our daily approach to meditation.

Sunday 31st March
We will look at the use of looking, listening, thinking and even and imagining in Christian meditation, through practice and sharing.

Sunday 7th April
This week, we will look at prayer and praying that come out of the first two weeks. The use of a journal and writing prayers as well as collecting favourite ones.

Sunday 14th April
In this final week, we will move into stillness and silence in an attempt to understand a little of contemplative meditation: looking at how we let thoughts, anxieties, desires, memories, images etc arise within us, endure and then pass away; learning to include all that happens within in stillness and silence as being brought into oneness with God.

It would help us to know who intends to be part of this group. Sign up via this link or add your name and contact details to the lists available in the South Transept after Sunday services.
