Cathedral Open Doors Quiet Morning 22 March 2014

This Saturday morning (22nd), the latest Open Doors Quiet Morning will be held in Christ Church Cathedral. The quiet mornings are designed to support those who seek a more contemplative way of life in the Christian tradition or who are interested in creating opportunities for silent reflection on the action of God in the midst of life. This month the quiet morning will be led by Amanda Dillon.

Amanda is an artist with a passion for the spiritual life and she will use art to inspire during the times set aside for reflection. Amanda says,“Works of art, both ancient and modern, may often reach places in the soul that words do not. The secret is to have the time to engage with these in a reflective and leisurely way.” The morning begins at 10am in the ancient east end of Christ Church Cathedral, which will be set aside for the morning’s reflections. Booking is not required but if you would like more information about the morning, contact the Rev’d Garth Bunting at the cathedral on 01 6778099 or ei.budccc@gnitnub.htrag.

Amanda assures all those coming that no artistic experience or knowledge is necessary and encourages people to come along and try out a quiet morning if they’ve never been to one before, “Art has another way of speaking to us about the spiritual journey and engaging us in contemplative practice. Beauty refreshes and restores and this is an opportunity to set aside for yourself a little time and space to gently enter into that.” More information about the cathedral’s spirituality programme can be found on the cathedral website.
