We have been reading the Rule of St Benedict at Night Prayer with the wise guidance of Richard Frost
Now there is an opportunity to think more deeply. At a time when change is often feared, stability can be elusive, and busyness interferes with listening to God, this quiet day offers an opportunity for space and reflection.
Reflecting Benedectine spirituality, the day takes the principles of three monastic vows: obedience (listening to God), conversion of life (change), and stability to explore how people can relate those principles to their faith, worka nd other aspects if life in very practical ways.
The day is open to anyone of any denomination. No prior knowledge of monasticism is needed!
There will be three short talks and periods of silence together with guidance on how to use the time. The day will be held via Zoom but you not be required to be at your screen for all of the time.
Richard Frost has been a Reader (Lay Minister) in the Church of England since 2003 and is a Oblate (a 'third order', lay member) of the Anglican Benedictine Monastic Community at Alton Abbey in Hampshire. A copy of Richard's book Life with St Benedict can be purchased from the Cathedral online shop here. Richard also write a blog here
