How do we embrace a spiritual wilderness? The Asian theologian Kosuke Koyama tells us not to try to escape the emptiness, to stick with it and to “look for flowers that grow only in the desert”. Before the gratification of Easter we must live the desert journey of God’s people.
The days of Lent offer time to slow down, to give as much priority to contemplation as we do to activity. On this quiet day we will watch with the Celtic saints for signs of a gentle wind filling our sails, guiding and reshaping our course.
Revd Canon Dr Lynda Barley was formerly Canon Pastor at Truro cathedral and is a trustee of the Sheldon Retreat Centre. She will share her desert journey of finding herself retiring into the isolation of the pandemic.
