The Lay Community of St Benedict
met for Easter
Dolfor, Newtown, Powys SY16 4AJ,
from Thursday 14th – Sunday 17th April 2022.
The theme of our Easter celebration was ‘Do this in memory of me’. We explored how we remember the Easter story in diverse ways in our different Christian traditions, and what this means for us as we live holy communion, create holy space, and offer holy service.
Our worship was facilitated by Fr Chris Dobson and Rev Dr Janet Lees.
Our Easter speaker this year was Dr Elizabeth Powell.
Since 2018 Elizabeth has been Assistant Professor and La Retraite Fellow in Theology and Spirituality at Durham University. Prior to that she was a Teaching Associate in the Faculty of Divinity at Cambridge University.
She will centre her reflections on our theme of “Do this in Memory of me” around the art and poetry of David Jones, about whom she has recently published a book “David Jones and the Craft of Theology: Becoming Beauty.”
