Time to Reflect: 11th-13th March, 2016.

This year we took advantage of our local connections and chose the theme ‘Furness and the Cistercians’.

 Fr John with some of the group Chilly at Furness! 

On Saturday, we visited Furness Abbey on Saturday with a talk by Gill Jepson, a children’s author. One of the highlights was hearing about the recent uncovering of the body of a 14th century abbot, holding his crozier.

 Crozier At Furness Abbey 

The top of the crozier, decorated with a golden St Michael, can be seen in the Abbey museum.

(If you get a chance, do visit this site - it is wonderful and far too little known. CLICK HERE for the English Heritage Furness Abbey page).

Later that day Joyce Simpson led us through an excellent session on Furness Abbey in the poetry of William Wordsworth. In the evening the group watched the very powerful film about the Cistercian martyrs in Algeria "Of Gods and Men" and the next morning enjoyed a session on Aelred and friendship, putting practice into theory!

As usual, the group shared in Mass and Daily Office with the community - including Night Prayer around the fire.

Haydn Lee at the piano
On the introductory social evening Haydn Lee gave us a piano recital and told us some of the history of the piano as he did so. As usual, it was lovely to welcome old friends and new, and to give everyone a chance step out of the busy world of academia to pray and talk about the fundamental purpose of study and teaching.

The theme of friendship proved so rich that we have decided to take it for our main theme next year.
