Crafted in Love: A Quiet Day for Lent

Saturday 16th March, 10.30am-4pm, Church Centre, Christ Church, 6a Morningside Road, Edinburgh
Cost £35 (£20 concession) includes lunch

“Go down to the potter’s house,” the prophet Jeremiah was told, “and there I will give you my lesson.” As we consider God as craftsman, what do we learn about God, and about ourselves? This Quiet Day is an invitation to take time to pause on our journey through Lent and through the year and contemplate the loving craftsmanship of the God who continues to create us, to think about our own “treasures in jars of clay”. 

This Quiet day is designed to stand alone, or to be complementary to the series of Lent Reflections, The Craftsman.

The day will draw on a mix of reflective approaches and will use words, images, music and the opportunity to work with craft materials. It will included guided reflections and individual quiet time. A buffet lunch is provided, as is coffee and cake. Please book by Friday 8th March if possible.

Women’s Spiritual Reflection Group

 
4 sessions – Sunday evenings 7.15 – 8.30pm on Zoom
17th March, 14th April, 19th May, 23rd June
 
Many spiritual seekers long for more experience of authentic connection and community, especially those who feel on the edge of church – or over the edge of church. In this group, through guided reflection, poetry, music and facilitated sharing, we’ll drop into a deeper kind of conversation – and find resourcing for our lives. Come with hopes, doubts, curiosities, sorrows, heretical questions, well-being wishes, inspirations, fears and sense of humour.
£20 per session with a commitment to the 4 dates. Maximum 8 participants.
Enquiries by end February elizabeth@reflectivespaces.org.uk
 
Facilitated by Elizabeth White, I am rooted in an evolving and inclusive contemplative Christian tradition. I’m inspired by ongoing depth of journey in the whole of life and work, and describe myself as a soulful and therapeutic edge-walker. I work in person and via zoom as a Spiritual Director and accredited Pastoral Supervisor, have particular interests in power, attachment, trauma and love, and in how we can become wounded healers for our world.

Return to the presence of God  
Refresh, Rest and Restore 

 

Taking its name from Isaiah 30:15, R&R is a weekly contemplative group,
set in the context of silence, prayer and reflection
to encourage spiritual growth and a deepening relationship with God. 

 

Meeting content

We begin with a quiet time of ‘stilling’ to put aside the busyness of the day and simply ‘be’ and rest in God.  This is followed by a prayerful review of the day, a led reflection and quiet time. 

R& R is led by a team of four, all guided by the Ignatian tradition and we particularly encourage those just starting out on
their Ignatian spiritual journey.

Weekly meetings

Meetings are weekly, every Wednesday, online at 19.30 for one hour, with a monthly face to face meeting in
Edinburgh.
