How St Benedict and Celtic spirituality is inspirational for these changing world times.
It couldn’t be timelier as, in the words of Bob Dylan’s song, The Times They area Changin’, and the world is being shaken. As Roy puts it, ‘The tectonic plates, politically, economically, environmentally and societally are shifting. The idea of returning to normal is to deny reality. In the light of such a changing world and church, we ask, How Then Shall We Live? How do we sing the Lord song in a strange land? What does it mean to love God and follow Christ in a changing world? As we embrace the challenges and opportunities of the present times look to the future that is uncertain, we will explore the wisdom that comes to us in scripture and the monastic traditions of Benedictine and Celtic spirituality. In an emerging new Dark Age they speak of light with which to illumine our paths.’
