Startling, courageous, wise, consoling: such words aptly describe the book of “showings” left by an anchoress living in the later 14th – early 15th c., known to us as Julian of Norwich. An “unlettered” woman, as she described herself, she received sixteen “revelations of divine love” in midlife, on May 8, 1373. During this day-retreat we will explore her witness to God’s radically inclusive love and the compassion this calls us to embrace, for ourselves and others. Our probing of her visionary text will encourage us to see what it means that our lives are “oned” with God, and how we might live into her conviction that in every dimension of our lives “love is [God’s] meaning.”
