Go to www.healingministry.org.uk for a new site that offers information, links and encouragement to anyone interested in or in need of this ministry,as expressed in the Church of England. It’s the work of the Archbishops’ Adviser for the Healing Ministry, the Revd Dr Beatrice Brandon so it comes with full church backing.
“Within these pages you will see that the Church’s healing ministry is for everyone. We all need healing in some way. Through the healing ministry, Jesus Christ meets us at our point of need. Every form of suffering can be helped in some way through this ministry.”
Here’s a good idea! The Henri Nouwen Society invite you to be part of an online community this summer reading Finding My Way Home in the company of a facilitator, Ray Glennon, and other participants in a group blog.
How does it work? On Sunday June 28, the facilitator, Ray Glennon will introduce himself on the blog and invite you to do the same. Ray will post reflection questions on the blog each Sunday through to August 2nd in keeping with a reading schedule also posted on the blog. There is no need to register or sign-in. For more information and to participate, go to: http://wp.henrinouwen.org/rgroup_blog/. Read, reflect, share your thoughts – participate at your own pace and in whatever way is most meaningful for you.
Finding My Way Home is a collection of four short essays, three previously published by Crossroad Publishing and here revised, that looks at different aspects of our spiritual life: The Path of Power, The Path of Peace, The Path of Waiting, and The Path of Living and Dying.
P.S. There’s a methodology here that you could borrow for a virtual reading party in your own neck of the woods.
Sebastian Sobecki:has discovered a letter in the Gdańsk archives prepared for Margery Kempe’s son. The letter (Gdańsk, Archiwum Państwowe, APG 300, 27/3, fol. 12r.) reveals the son’s first name and gives the reason for his 1431 visit to Lynn. More importantly, the discovery confirms the historicity of The Book of Margery Kempe and strengthens the argument for Kempe’s (female) authorship as opposed to that of the priest who took her dictation. Sebastian first announced his discovery at NCS in Reykjavik and will give a paper on this topic at EBS this summer. The full version will be published as ‘“The writyng of this tretys:” Margery Kempe’s Son and the Authorship of Her Book’ in this year’s Studies in the Age of Chaucer.
