The Saturday Retreat will be a reflective day led by Hugh Brown OCarm. It will be based on the thought of Walter Brueggemann in his book, “From Whom No Secrets Are Hid” (2014).
Please book using the form below and pay by bank transfer or via trybooking and pay with credit card.
Tea and coffee and light refreshments will be available throughout the day. (Please bring your own lunch.)
Hugh writes: “The Psalms, written well over two thousand years ago, are the Songbook of Israel. Taken over by the Christian tradition, they are accepted as our songs, although from time to time, they are sanitised. They can both attract us and threaten us as a community because they offer a way of relating to God that is both loving and reverential and abrasive and demanding. From songs of praise in honour of God, they can also jump to community and individual laments or complaints about the situation of the singer. Despite their age and different setting they have a universal message that often contradicts our frequently uncriticised world view and open to us a way of relating to God that is both refreshing and humbling.”
