Quiet Day II
April 3 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Leader: Revd Canon Andrew Tawn
‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’
As this quiet day falls in Holy Week, we will be reflecting on Jesus’ agonised cry from the cross. These words lead us into some of the great mysteries of faith: our own experiences of God’s absence; why did Jesus have to suffer and die on the cross? What sense can we make of our own suffering? How can we truly celebrate the resurrection, unless we travel by the way of the cross?
This day is an invitation to watch and pray with Christ in his suffering; to resist the temptation to bypass the darker themes of Holy Week, so that we may be the better prepared for the light and joy of Easter.
Andrew Tawn is Director of Clergy Development for the Diocese of Leeds. Before that he was rector of Addingham. Once upon a time he was a secondary school teacher, and his interest and enthusiasm for how we learn has always been an important strand in his ministry, being involved in training ordinands, readers and curates before his present full time training role. He loves reading, walking and good food.
This is a free event, but please note, booking is now required. Please email or phone the office to book your place.
