« Van Gogh, Thomas Merton and Rowan Williams - and the connection is? | Main | Tariq Jahan - a noble and conciliatory presence.... »

my problem with silent retreats is that I start trying to communicate in British Sign Language, much to other people's confusion!


Catching up after a long famine in my blog-reading: I once shared a wonderful 3 days with +John in the early 80s at a conference called "Peacemaking in the Nuclear Age". Because of his difficulties with his sight, he asked me to take notes for him in the small group sessions, so I was very much involved with his thoughts and utterances during the whole time. I was overcome with the whole experience, and The Go-Between God has been one of my most important books in the years since.
This was NOT a silent affair, thank goodness!
