La vie spirituelle

Posted on 29 April 2007
Stephen, pastor of Ferndale Baptist Church, has just returned from his Annual Retreat at the Celtic Orthodox Monastery of the Holy Presence in St.Dolay in Brittany.

Stephen reports that ‘seven days of cloudless skies, the compassion and generosity of the brothers and the opportunity for study, prayer and reflection (as well as rest!) made it a wonderful week. I have known members of the community for about 10 years and this was my seventh visit. Our theological differences are considerable but I have found among the brothers a real passion for God and have been challenged by them in my own Christian discipleship. This time I spent time especially reflecting on the Psalms as providing parameters for the spiritual life and concentrated my reading on Evagrius of Pontus… an ancient writer who shows considerable wisdom as to the ‘how’ of spiritual growth.’
