Finding Sheep and Trimming Lamps: The Power of Parables in Word and Image

This event has ended

Anji Dowson

En-suite £270.00 / Standard £240.00

Parables were seemingly simple, yet powerful ways in which Jesus taught some very deep truths.

Through prayerful reflection, the retreat will look at these remarkable stories in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, and how so many of the parables have inspired stunning works of art, helping us to meditate on their meaning.

Anji is an art historian specialising in sacred art, and her retreats combine Benedictine spirituality and a love of scripture with reflection on works of art, whether painting, sculpture, icon or stained glass. She is also a published author and poet.

This retreat included full board and light refreshments.
