Many of us today are searching for more spiritual depth to our lives. Our search may well guide us to Zen, or New Age practices. Julian discovered that God was not angry or judgmental but overflowing with love, a God who lifts us up each time we fall, a God who is gentle with those who are weak or hurting, a God who gives hope to those who are desperate.

Her book, Revelations of Divine Love, is full of practical support which can enable us to be more fully aware that we are all children of a compassionate God. The words and music for our worship have been prepared by Sr Elizabeth Ruth Obbard, O.Carm, a former trustee of the Friends of Julian and well-known for her books on spirituality, including her most recent version of Julian’s sixteen Showings, enhanced by her own beautifully meditative line drawings, and fittingly dedicated to Sr Pamela, C.A.H. Copies of this recent publication are available for purchase in the Julian Centre throughout our retreat.

These two days invite us to share how we might develop our own prayer life, especially through intercession, meditation on Revelations and contemplation, allowing the truths of what we read, slowly and reflectively, to speak to us, helping us to deepen our spiritual lives.

Should I not tell you about the goodness of God because I am a woman?”, writes Julian. Happily for us, as for those who read or listened to her words since the Middle Ages, she did tell us about God’s goodness, in a male dominated and turbulent age, and we can be the more joyful for it.

This series of talks focuses on not only what we learn from Julian herself and her writing but also how this has shaped the lives of those who have read or heard her teaching and how it is still relevant today, in a world that presents each one of us with hard and, at times, painful decisions to make.
