Mission Community Quiet Day

St Rita’s Conference Centre, Honiton

Saturday 23rd February 2019, 10 am – 4 pm

How these ancient texts may lead into the all-encompassing Mystery of God, with Canon Patrick Woodhouse

The Psalms are treasured texts within both the Jewish and Christian traditions, and yet they can also be difficult, even forbidding, coming from an ancient and very different world.

On this Quiet Day we shall touch on what these ancient texts are, when they were written, and out of what kind of contexts they emerged; but mainly we shall explore the power of their meanings for us today, and how they can nourish a deep life of prayer and contemplation, enabling us to see ourselves and the world differently.

Patrick Woodhouse is a writer and Anglican priest. Recently he published Life in the Psalms (Bloomsbury 2015) and Etty Hillesum, a Life Transformed (Bloomsbury 2009), the story of a young Jewish diarist who died in Auschwitz. He was for thirteen years a Canon of Wells Cathedral. He now lives in South Somerset.

The day is provided free, including lunch, with an opportunity to make a donation to the Mission Community. Please sign up on the sheets which will be in the back of the church from Sunday 3rd February, by Monday 18th February at the latest. Please also indicate whether you need transport.
