Revd Sarah Hutton, Spiritual Growth Facilitator, Guildford Diocese

‘Prayer: Standing on the threshold’  

 

‘Limen’ the old Latin word meaning threshold and from the same root as our word liminal, meaning the condition of being on a threshold or boundary, or being at a transitional stage of a process. We are going to explore what light this might shed on what we are doing when we pray.

Little did I know that specialising in Spirituality papers for my Finals would have such ramifications! After taking a Theology degree I taught Religious Studies for 25 years. I combined that with being an OLM Curate in the Parish of Shere for a while. However, my interest in spirituality caught up with me and for the last 3 years have had the joy of being Spiritual Growth Facilitator for Guildford Diocese.  

 

 

 

Laurence Impey

Three Months Teaching in Ethiopia

 

Last winter Laurence spent three months teaching English in the secondary schools of Lalibela in the Northern Highlands of Ethiopia. He was hopeful, as a teacher of foreign languages in England, that teaching English as a foreign language to Ethiopian children would not be an insuperable challenge. Some of you will have read his dispatches published on our on-line website. In this illustrated talk he will be introducing new material as he talks about life in a community shaped by the faith and practices of the Orthodox Church, the physical hardships and the spiritual joys. "How much is life in Lalibela like life in England?" he was asked. "In no way whatsoever", was his answer! Come and judge for yourselves....
