Life is joyful, beautiful and a rich blessing, but also sometimes difficult, painful and mysterious. This day will draw on imagery from the Christian spiritual tradition to explore the part struggle plays within our growth and our experience of God, with insights from the writings of John of the Cross, Julian of Norwich, George Herbert and Gerard Manley Hopkins. With their help we learn to travel by night deeper into God. We discover how Christ willingly falls into the depths of our difficulty. We wrestle with God yet find ourselves held by love. We learn to move in rhythm with the changing seasons of our lives. We travel the trackless wastes between endings and beginnings and find hope along the way.
