Advent Retreat

30th November 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 3rd December 2021 @ 2:00 pm


Leader:  Joyce Simpson

‘Let us now go even unto Bethlehem.’

The journey to Bethlehem passes through the wilderness, where John, the desert wild man, insists that change is necessary, and change is coming. As pilgrims, in the company of poets, we shall venture into the wilderness, seeking to confront afresh the silence and resonance of God. With perhaps both hope and fear in our hearts, we shall move expectantly towards the question: ‘What might happen if we were to  invite God into our lives that bit more radically?’

Joyce Simpson is the retired Head of Humanities at Leeds Trinity University, where she established an MA programme in Literature and Spirituality. Nowadays she delights in discovering the thoughts and insights of fellow-voyagers from different walks of life.
