The next Merton Day Retreat will be held at Corrymeela Knocklayd on Saturday 11th June from 10am-4pm
 
The retreat is open to all and will include watching (and discussing) the film entitled Merton: A Film Biography (by Paul Wilkes and Audrey Glynn).  There will also be some prayer/meditation time, silent time, walking and a period of discussion incorporated into the programme.  The discussion will focus on the concept of love as articulated by Merton in his book The Power and the Meaning of Love (SPCK Publications: Classic Series 2010; ISBN 9780281063284).  PLEASE NOTE: Don’t worry if you don’t have time to read the book!  The discussion will be general in nature and very open.
 
Lunch and tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout the day.
 
For further information, or to book your place, please e-mail me at s.peddie@pattersonpeddie.com.  I look forward to hearing from you!
 
Oh, and while I remember – I’ve put together a video based on the opening meditation of the first retreat held at Corrymeela.  Here it is:
