A Beginners’ Guide to Christian Spirituality - St Paul’s, London

What is Christian Spirituality? Carys Walsh says that it is nothing less than experiencing the transformative power of God’s love, and living this out. She also says that Christian Spirituality is immensely rich and varied, made new by God in every generation.

In this afternoon we take an introductory look at the dynamic

nature of Christian spirituality. We will explore some of its contours and

touch on just a few of its many and varied expressions, from the 6th century

Rule of St Benedict, a model of how to live a life of faith, balance and

harmony which continues to enrich lives inside and outside monasteries today,

to the Franciscan vision of freedom in poverty and joy in creation. We will

also explore the Anglican tradition, deeply rooted in the sense of place, the beauty

of language and the poetic tradition.

The Revd Dr Carys Walsh is in charge of training for

curates in the Diocese of Peterborough. She has a Phd in Christian

Spirituality, focussing on the Sacramental Vision of R S Thomas and was until

recently Tutor and Lecturer in Christian Spirituality at St Mellitus

College in the Diocese of London.
