Trinity School for Ministry would like to invite you to explore
with retired Professor Dr. Les Fairfield & Rev. Canon Susan Skillen
“Medieval Mystics: Julian of Norwich and Her World”- a travel-study pilgrimage.

Dear Friends,

Medieval England in the age of the Black Death was both tragic and hopeful…tragic in that a third of the population died, yet hopeful in that mystics like Julian of Norwich spoke words of powerful consolation from God. In the midst of pain and suffering, Julian had the faith to promise that “all manner of things shall be well.” Her witness (and that of the mystics like the author of The Cloud of Unknowing) reassured her contemporaries that God had not forgotten or forsaken them. And so the world of Julian produced stunning beauty in spite of all the pain. We will visit the medieval England that she knew…the English Perpendicular cathedrals and churches, the half-timbered village houses, the wealthy towns that grew rich on the East Anglican wool from the rich pastures around Norwich. Amidst the ravishing beauty of late medieval England, we will always be listening for God’s still small voice that speaks to our hearts when we pay attention, and speaks words of hope to us today.

Come join us!
The Rev. Canon Susan Skillen
The Rev. Dr. Les Fairfield
