Orthodox Odyssey

Saturday 9 July 2022
10am to 4pm at Sacrista Prebend Retreat House

Orthodox IconThis Quiet Day explores three aspects of the spirituality of the Orthodox Church:

  1. Prayer of the Heart – the contemplative character of Orthodox prayer and worship, including the importance of the Jesus Prayer and the Divine Liturgy.
  2. Purification of the Will – the significance of fasting in the Orthodox tradition, within the context of ongoing spiritual warfare.
  3. Vision of Glory – the key place of icons in Orthodox belief and practice.

Course leader: Jim Wellington has led many retreats and quiet days in the course of a 45-year Anglican priestly ministry. All have related to different aspects of contemplative prayer and spirituality, drawing on the teaching of the Early Church Fathers and the traditions of Eastern Christianity. He has written three devotional books: Praying the Psalms with Jesus (Grove Books, 2014), Beguiled by Jesus (Grove Books, 2017), and Journeying with the Jesus Prayer (Fairacres, 2020).
