The Life Stirring Within: a week-long online retreat with Isaac Penington
5 in stock
Isaac Penington was one of the most creative spiritual writers among the early Friends, much of his writing being in the form of letters of encouragement and ‘spiritual counsel’ to fellow travellers in the Quaker community. Topics he focusses on include: the interior life; surrendering to the Divine presence within; understanding Christ and scripture; discernment and spiritual growth; suffering as a way to spiritual growth; witness and testimony. On each day of the retreat you will receive a section of his writing with specially written commentary, as well as other complementary spiritual writing. To help your own reflection you will receive a spiritual exercise and questions to focus on. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings between 6.30 and 7.30pm, you have the option of joining Timothy Ashworth and others on the retreat for a period of worship and listening and sharing together.
Timothy Ashworth draws on biblical study, retreat work and interfaith dialogue to illuminate the nature of spiritual transformation.
Martin Layton is a Friend and teacher. His interest is in exploring how Quaker spirituality strengthens lives of active witness.
