|Father Laurence and Father Justin meeting at St Catherine’s`|
|Will she ask him to follow her into the garden?|
And what will he make of us, of the countryside, wintery now and so English, different to Sinai where the desert yields a little green in the garden of the Monastery and deep water has made an oasis with peach and almond trees, dates and a few vegetables. Will he borrow some wellington boots and stride alongside us walking the dogs round the fields? Will he be happy here? You can come and meet him too. If you live in London you can listen to him talk on November 28th at St Martin-in-the-Fields at 10.00 am. He will be part of a programme where he and a Benedictine Monk, Father Laurence Freeman tell us about the mystical tradition of both Eastern and Western Christianity. This event is free and open to all but if you live in another country you can hear Father Justin speaking the same evening via live stream. If you register for this by clicking on this link, I will send you the access information a few days beforehand. And I will tell you after all the talks are over and Father Justin has gone back to his desert Monastery, how he and baby Bea and the dogs got on in the kitchen of our house! And there may even be a photo of them all together.
