Quiet Garden Day

Our September Quiet Garden Day will be a celebration of the fullness and abundance of God as the long season of Ordinary Time, whose liturgical colour is green, draws to a close.  As colours change and summer gives way to autumn, this day is an invitation to reflect on the way God works in us through every season of our lives.  The 13th century abbess, Hildegard of Bingen, gave us the word ‘veriditas’ for the ‘greening power of God.’   There are alway parts of our life where something is beginning, something is flourishing, something coming to an end.  Wherever you feel you are in this cycle of life, you are invited to come and spend some time in this quiet place of prayer, immersed in the beauty and vitality of God, whose love for you and the world is forever green.

Sacrifice and Salvation: A Quiet Day in preparation for Eastertide

Sacrifice is no longer part of our world; we find the whole idea alien and repulsive but it is fundamental to the human imagination; to the relationship between earth and heaven, between humanity and the divine. A concept woven into our worship, hymns, liturgies, and prayers, especially as we approach Good Friday and Easter. Without it, the Christian gospel of salvation is lost.. How does it help us to understand the historical fact that lies at the heart of the Christian faith, the cross of Christ? And how might it enrich our understanding of the person of Christ and the work of salvation?

Quiet Garden Day

This Quiet Garden Day in early summer will take it’s cue from the orchard in the surroundings of the gardens of the Community of the Resurrection, and offer a reflection on the mystery of both growing and failing with Christ.
