During troubled times, Julian of Norwich, fourteenth-century wisdom figure and mystic, had a transformative experience at age thirty. Christ spoke tenderly to her and unfolded a series of revelations that his Cross was done for love and love was to be the meaning of her life.
In this love God made us.
In this love, God keeps us.
God will never allow us to be hurt
In a way that would destroy this joy.
Together we will explore with Julian how our prayer life has evolved or changed as we transition from childhood into adulthood. Julian’s transformative visions offer wisdom for our own prayerful living.
There will be time for individual reflection, sharing in an atmosphere of trust, drawing on our own living experiences and enjoying time apart in the beauty of this place.
...you shall never learn anything except love from God.
