This program is for those who want to explore a new way of engaging with scripture and prayer. We will use Promptings from Paradise by J. Philip Newell over a six-week period. With six passages from the gospel of Luke we will allow our imagination to weave our stories and our lives into Jesus’ story. The aim is to let the Spirit of God work in our hearts in developing a more intimate walk with Jesus. The focus of the group is neither Bible study nor book review but entering into a way of prayer introduced by Ignatius of Loyola several centuries ago.

Presenter, Dr. Cynthia S.W. Crysdale, is professor of Christian Ethics and Theology at the School of Theology at the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee. She has authored Embracing Travail: Retrieving the Cross Today (Continuum, 1999), Transformed Lives: Making Sense of Atonement Today (Church Publishing, 2016) and co-authored Creator God Evolving World (Fortress, 2013) with Neil Ormerod. Her most recent work involves training in Ignatian spirituality and spiritual direction.
