Seven Sacred Spaces: Portals to deeper community life in Christ (Paperback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Applying monastic principles to deepen spiritual experience today



Too often our understanding of and engagement with 'church' is reduced to corporate worship, when it is so much more. George Lings identifies seven characteristic elements in Christian communities through the ages, which when held in balance enable a richer expression of discipleship, mission and community. In the monastic tradition these elements have distinctive locations: cell (being alone with God), chapel (corporate public worship), chapter (making decisions), cloister (planned and surprising meetings), garden (the place of work), refectory (food and hospitality) and scriptorium (study and knowledge). Through this model George Lings explores how these seven elements relate to our individual and communal walk with God, hold good for family life, and appear in wider society.
