Quiet Morning for Women: Julian of Norwich, March 28

A "Quiet Morning" is just that: a time to be quiet and listen for the Spirit of God moving among us.

You are invited to a Quiet Morning with inspiration from the life and writings of Julian of Norwich, a 14th century spiritual guide. Julian's Revelations of Divine Love, her reflections on a powerful experience of God, was the first book published by a woman writing in English.

Sponsoring this Quiet Morning is the Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross. The Companions are Episcopal women, in all walks of life, who are dedicated to intercessory prayer and work on behalf of social justice. Several of us live in Upstate New York, and gather from time to time for prayer, fellowship and reflection.

Please join us at St. Margaret's House and Ecumenical Center, 47 Jordan Road, New Hartford, NY. (315-724-2324) beginning at 9 am on Saturday, March 28. We conclude with lunch, included in the suggested donation of $25. For reservations, please contact Sue O'Daniel by email, or me, Jackie Schmitt, at this blog.

"All will be well, and all will be well, and every manner of thing will be well," Julian wrote, remembering how God spoke to her at a time of deep personal crisis. Join us, and explore how the life of this 14th century woman can be relevant to us today.
