Jonathan Cowley, a deacon serving in the parish of St Cuthbert's in Chesterfield will introduce the place and purpose of holy icons within the Church: their history, their theology and their use in the spiritual life.
Orthodox Christian and ordained deacon, Jonathan will discuss the history and theology of icon in order to provide a context for their importance in Christian spirituality and to provide an understanding of how they are (and are not) used in prayer.
We shall conclude with a short prayer together before opportunity for individual quiet contemplation with some icons. There will be opportunity for questions to be asked, and if time available, additional discussion.
