Greening the Soul – a Lent oasis

Wednesday, 24th February @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Lent is often described as the ‘springtime of the soul’, a time for growing in our relationship with God. Hildegard of Bingen called this ‘the greening of the soul’

Hildegard lived in the region of the Rhine in 12th Century. She was a Benedictine Abbess, a writer and composer, a mystic and a philosopher

These 3 Oasis mornings/afternoons offer an opportunity to ponder how God invites us to grow in faith and hope and love. When our souls are ‘greened’  then others will grow too, and our world transformed!

We will draw on the Scriptures and on Hildegard and other Christian Spiritual writers, both from the past and from our contemporary context, as we reflect and pray.

There will be an opportunity, for those who wish, to have a conversation with a spiritual director from our team.
