ALL SHALL BE WELL:
The Wisdom of Julian of Norwich for Our Time
How often do we say that we are living in unprecedented times?
Julian of Norwich who lived over 600 years ago would say that our times are not so unprecedented. Her 80 years of life were marked by continuous waves of bubonic plague, social and political upheaval, as well as religious controversy. Yet, she remained grounded in God’s love as she embraced the goodness of God in all things. Her writings offer an abundance of practical wisdom for our own time of pandemic, conflict, and controversy.
Join Deborah Hansen, Director of Spiritual Formation, for an 8-week series, using Matthew Fox’s Julian of Norwich: Wisdom in a Time of Pandemic—and Beyond as a springboard into her writings. Each week, we will glean Julian’s wisdom on such topics as: Goodness, Joy, and Awe; Facing the Darkness; Non-Dualism; Love Over Evil; and much more. Then, we will ask ourselves: How am I called to grow today?
Our discussions will be challenging, stretching, affirming, and practical. Books will be available at the first gathering, and the cost is $10.
