Advent Quiet Day The God Who Comes
16th December 2017, 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
Quiet Day for Advent using Carvings & Music
Having led Quiet Days in Lent at the Mirfield Centre in 2010 and 2015, Canon Christopher Lewis returns this year in Advent. He will again bring some of his wood carvings to provide a focus for the day, along with music that reflects them. Among them will be carvings of the Great Advent Antiphons, inspired by Arvo Pärt’s Magnificat Antiphons. Christopher’s practice is usually to place a carving with neither title nor comment, inviting participants to respond imaginatively to what they see there. Only then does he offer his own interpretation, before playing music that leads into silence. All the carvings this year will touch on an Advent theme, “The God Who Comes”.
