EXPERIENCING THE OLD TESTAMENT STORY
With Jessie Rogers
The Scriptures of the Old Testament give us a story to live by, one that shapes the way we see ourselves, God and the world we live in. Together we will look at the stories that are set at the beginning of the biblical canon: of creation and falling apart, of Abraham our ancestor in faith, and the oppression and deliverance that is the Exodus narrative.
Jessie will use the scripts and visual storytelling techniques of Godly Play, a programme of spiritual formation developed by Jerome Berryman. Each story will be followed by a time of open-ended wondering. The day will be gently paced, including time for discussion, reflection and creative response.

ORLAGH RETREAT
Now that a little time has settled I can sum up my "Lectio Week' with two major happenings:
1. I realised 'I seek a truth' and its the Gospels and Catholicism I am obviously drawn to.
2. I felt I matured that week more than any other time in my life, that I am now as good as grown up! Grown up enough to put together a plan, rather than follow one's nose from month to month. (A.M.)
