At the Redeemer, we know that asking deeper questions and exploring issues of faith helps us grow both as individuals and as a community.
Throughout the year, we offer a variety of speakers and learning series, providing opportunities to gather and learn together; details are provided here as well as through our eNews. A warm welcome awaits all who join – parishioners, friends and members of the wider community.
Celebrating Julian of Norwich
On May 8, 1373, in the bustling English city of Norwich, a woman called Julian had a near-death experience. She went on to relate her visions in the first book written in English by a woman. She insisted that everything she wrote was faithful to tradition, but her thought was original and profound: a vision of God in whom there is no room for wrath, but only boundless love and compassion for the suffering of humanity. Who is both Father and Mother of Creation. And who somehow, by a miracle beyond our ability to grasp, will eventually accomplish the salvation of every living being.
Learning@Redeemer invites you to observe the anniversary of Julian’s vision on Saturday, May 8, at 4PM. Medievalist David Townsend will provide a short introduction to Julian’s life and thought. A team of eight readers will bring excerpts from her book to life. After the reading we will have 20 minutes of conversation, reflecting together on we’ve heard, facilitated by pastoral theologian Elaine Ramshaw.
