Holy Week Compline 2010

I’ve had a wonderful three days of attending Compline at St Andrews, Hampton led by the Benendictine Monks and Sister’s of Mucknell Abbey (formerly Burford Abbey).

The guy leading was the Abbot Stuart Burns

Apart from sleeping really well after the services, Stuart’s talks have helped me to remember to Be still in order to give God chance to talk and to stop worrying.  Tonight he helped me realise that the Glory of God is about the essence of God.  And the essence of God is his heartache and Love for all creation. For us. For me. And so when Christ shared with us the Glory of God he was in fact giving us a share in this essence.
