Armistice Centenary Retreat

Date / Time: Fri 23rd Nov 2018 – Sun 25th Nov 2018

Into the Way of Peace

How does a Christian live in a world where there are ‘wars and rumours of wars’?

World War l and the century which followed is arguably the most dramatic era in human history. We will use poetry, art, cinema and popular culture (including Comic Cuts and The Rainbow) to reflect on the ‘peace of God’ and his will for each of us, learning about love, about conflict, about sacrifice, about death (perhaps about hell) and about the gift and opportunity of living in the 21st century.

I intend this to be a retreat and not a philosophy session on the rights and wrongs of war. I’m really rather looking forward to it. Do you care to join me?

Leader: Fr John CR
