A Beginner's Guide to Christian Spirituality

Carys Walsh

What is Christian Spirituality? Carys Walsh says that it is nothing less than experiencing the transformative power of God’s love, and living this out. She also says that Christian Spirituality is immensely rich and varied, made new by God in every generation.

Saturday 9 February 2019 2 - 4.30pm
Wren Suite £15 (bursaries are available)

In this afternoon we take an introductory look at the dynamic nature of Christian spirituality. We will explore some of its contours and touch on just a few of its many and varied expressions, from the 6th century Rule of St Benedict, a model of how to live a life of faith, balance and harmony which continues to enrich lives inside and outside monasteries today, to the Franciscan vision of freedom in poverty and joy in creation. We will also explore the Anglican tradition, deeply rooted in the sense of place, the beauty of language and the poetic tradition.

The Revd Dr Carys Walsh is in charge of training for curates in the Diocese of Peterborough. She has a Phd in Christian Spirituality, focussing on the Sacramental Vision of R S Thomas and was until recently Tutor and Lecturer in Christian Spirituality at St Mellitus College in the Diocese of London.
