Jesus’ encounter with the Woman at the Well is depicted in the Retreat Association Icon, visiting Whirlow from July 17th to August 4th this year.
Visitors will have opportunity to spend time with the icon and obtain resources associated with it if they wish.
A day on the use of icons in prayer led by Chris Ellis will take place on July 22nd, while the icon is in situ. Other events in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit will also use it as a focus.
By John Coleman, or IkonJohn, the icon’s subject is taken from John’s gospel, chapter 4. This scene was chosen by the Association for its universal appeal and its themes associated with retreat and spiritual direction.
