Praying with Icons: An Introductory Workshop.
You may be drawn to - or turned off by! - the idea of using icons in prayer. This introductory day, led by Rev Dr Chris Ellis, will begin to open up a little of the history of Christian iconography and reflect on some theological aspects of these devotional images.
As well as trying to appreciate the artistry and symbolism of well-loved icons, there will be opportunity for personal reflection and suggestions for how participants might use icons in their own meditations and prayers.
The Retreat Association icon, created by John Coleman, will be on display at Whirlow for participants to encounter during this day.
The cost of the day is £18 and you are invited to bring your own lunch. If you would like to attend but the cost may deter you, please consider applying for a grant.
