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.
