Jacob Limping – Advent Day Retreat

Thursday, 26th November, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Vulnerability is how we open up to grace in the upside down values of the kingdom – in the desert we face ourselves as we really are and discover that God’s love for us is without limit.

Through prayer, silence and a series of addresses we will go on a journey with texts from Scripture and wisdom from the tradition – the desert fathers, the cloud of unknowing, Teresa of Avila through to Thomas Merton and Jean Vanier.

Nicholas is Dean of Chelmsford Cathedral. He grew up in Manchester and has spent most of his ministry in the north east of England before arriving in Essex in 2014. He has a passionate interest in helping people engage more deeply with Scripture and a wide range of voices down the centuries as a way of opening up to God.
