A Spirituality of Justice Day of Shared Reflection
Join us for a day to step away from the concerns of everyday life and reflect on how we can live a life of nonviolence in the way that Jesus related to other people. In order to do this we need to re-look at the Gospels and see them in a fresh light and then reflect on what this might mean for how we live out our own lives today.
This Autumn Day of Reflection is organised by the J&P Commission working in partnership with the Pax Christi Group in the Leeds Diocese. Guiding us in a new reading of Scripture and reflection will be Sr Bernie Roche.
The day will include some short talks to stimulate our thinking with time set aside for private reflection, but also the opportunity to share thoughts with others.
There is no charge to attend this day (though a voluntary collection will be taken at some point). We ask everyone who registers to bring some food to share with others at lunchtime. Please only bring food that does not require further preparation or cooking. If you have special dietary requirements then you may not be able to do this, of course.
The Good Shepherd Centre makes for an excellent location to hold such a day. The centre itself is well-equipped. If the weather is good then there is the opportunity to walk in silence in the park area adjacent to the centre, or walk along the canal. For those with limited mobility (or in the case of bad weather) the church is attached to the centre and will also be available for private reflection.
Please email the Justice & Peace team if you’d like to attend. Our contact details are here.
