LIVING THE HOURS

THE METHODIST CHURCH,
BRUTON

1-30 NOVEMBER 2018
Mondays to Fridays


For six years, John Reynolds was part of the community at Hilfield Friary in Dorset.

Hilfield has been home to the Anglican Franciscan Order since 1921.

John has been a Franciscan Tertiary for 35 years and is a Spiritual Director & Novice Guardian. He served at Hilfiend as Bursar and Cantor.

Over this time he has come to realise how life-changing and enhancing it is, Living the Hours. It brings contentment and encouragement to daily life in an ordered rhythm not often found in parish life.

Here is a chance to try it for yourself! As much as you like – just once, or once a week, or daily…
There is a rotating programme, so coming on the same days each week would cover 4 of the 5 sessions on offer (like House Groups).
The prayer times will follow the Franciscan Office Book (morning prayer and so on, in contemporary versions).

The 5 Sessions:
Day 1 Knowing Ourselves
An introduction to the Myers Briggs and Enneagram programmes

Day 2 The Pilgrimage of Faith
An exploration of the journey from the first ‘church’ to todday

Day 3 The Monastic Orders
Benedictines, Cictercians, Carthusians, Franciscans, Ignatians, Dominicans, Augustinians, Carmelites

Day 4 The Labyrinth
Pilgrimage, Celtic Spirituality, Mysticism, Evelyn Underhill

Day 5 The Orders Today
Richard Rohr, Thomas Merton, Taize, St Anselm at Lambeth, St Aldhelm at Bruton
