The Work of Love: Christian Meditation

26th April 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Christian Meditation in Cumbria: The Work of Love in the Face of Doom

Rev Dr Sarah Bachelard

Thursday 26th April 2018
Carver United Reformed Church, Lake Rd, Windermere LA23 2BY

We live in times that are critical for the future of life on earth. Many feel a sense of dread and impotence, particularly in relation to the ecological crisis and what seems the intractable difficulty of generating meaningful engagement with its many challenges. What does it mean to live well in the face of doom – neither evading the truth of our situation, nor being overwhelmed by cynicism, rage, fear and despair? How
might a contemplative perspective help us bear with our times, and sustain us in the transforming labour of faith, hope and love?
Sarah Bachelard is the founding director of Benedictus Contemplative Church, an ecumenical community based in Canberra, Australia. A theologian, retreat leader and priest, Sarah is a member of the World Community for Christian Meditation and an honorary research fellow at the Australian Catholic University. She has led retreats and taught contemplative prayer in Australia and internationally, and is the author of
‘Experiencing God in a Time of Crisis’ and ‘Resurrection and Moral Imagination’.

10.00am for 10.30am – 4.00pm.
Bring your own lunch.
