Focus in 2014...Cultivating a Rule of Life 

Our spiritual focus for 2013 was Lectio Divina - digesting Scripture prayerfully. More than 90 people participated in the Belloc retreat and in the 1-day workshops that followed. Some workshops are still to come early 2014. The idea to take Belloc 'on the road’ has worked really well, and for 2014 we hope to continue with these 1-day workshops (see below).!

To follow on, our spiritual focus for 2014 will be ‘Cultivating a Rule of Life’. In a way we continue with work done on ‘prayer' and ‘digesting Scripture’ (Lectio Divina), yet we also hope to break new ground. The idea is to offer encouragement and practical suggestions to all who are willing to go on the journey, in having their lives shaped under God, being Jesus followers…living the life of the Spirit, whether we have been on the faith journey for many decades or whether we have just started. Let us continue to encourage one another on that journey in 2014! We will explore ‘Rule of Life’ at the Belloc retreat (theme: On Love and Fear - an introduction into Ignatian spirituality) and in the 1-day “Rule of Life’ workshops that will hopefully follow.!

May the Lord bless you and keep you on this next phase of your journey…and for all that lies ahead in 2014!

Love, prayers and blessings, Paul

Our role is to minister to the spiritual needs of English-speaking people in the Dordogne, Lot-et-Garonne and Gironde. As an Anglican Chaplaincy, part of the Diocese in Europe, we are home to Christians from all denominations. We also welcome those who are exploring questions of faith, or who are simply looking for companionship or support. All are welcome! Currently congregations comprising many different nationalities meet in a dozen or so worship centres in an area the size of Wales. Services in English are led by a growing team of clergy, lay readers and congregational worship leaders, and include Holy Communion, Morning Worship, Prayer and Praise, Family Services, and Evensong.
