Sunday Evening Talk: May 24, 2015 at 7:00 pm

A sixteenth century saint, Ignatius Lopez Loyola, has inspired countless people on their spiritual journeys, through what has come to be known as Ignatian spirituality. But Ignatius was a man with a limp — a man marked by his experiences of failure, disappointment and struggle who became a man of passionate commitment to God.

Today’s gathering offers an opportunity to explore some of the key events in Ignatius’ own story as they reveal the patterns of how divine grace works through human imperfection to bring about transformation beyond anything we can imagine.

Led by Margaret Silf, who was born and raised in Sheffield, England, and describes herself as “an ecumenical Christian committed to working across and beyond the denominational boundaries.”

Although a Christian since her teens, she experienced a genuine return to God in her mid-30s, aided by a Jesuit. Today she calls herself a “boundary dweller” no longer belonging to a particular Christian denomination — more at home outside the institutional church than within.

She is a prolific author and retreat conductor. Her books include

  • Inner Compass, Sacred Spaces: Stations on a Celtic Way
  • The Other Side of Chaos
  • Just Call Me Lopez
  • Simple Faith
