For Evelyn Underhill we are called to nurture a ‘life in which all that we do comes from the centre where we are anchored in God.’ Born upper middle class towards the end of the Victorian Era, Evelyn Underhill experienced personally and culturally many changes in her life. When she died, at the beginning of World War II, she left behind a legacy which included books, biographies, addresses, and reviews on mysticism, vocation, prayer and liturgy. In this session we will focus on Underhill’s own story; ponder the uniqueness of this complex woman’s life.  Interdenominational at heart, her decision to place herself in the Anglican Church by 1921 never detracted from her underlying Catholicism. Her passion to read and understand the lives of many saints, philosophers and mystics throughout history and in her own time, never dissipated. Underhill came to understand that corporate worship is the wholly human response to the Eternal. For her, God ‘always awakens an energetic Love.’ Life is to be lived in balanced wholeness whereby the sacramental and the practical are to be honoured together. For Evelyn Underhill we are called to nurture a ‘life in which all that we do comes from the centre where we are anchored in God.’
