Went to Burford Priory (Benedictine) this morning with Gil Poole and Jim Barker. Had a great time, Nice quiet service and then lunch with Brother Stuart who is the Abbot. Very gracious man who is happy and wise and patient.We chatted for quite a while about his thoughts on nu monasticism and the emerging church. In fact, we stayed for None at 2pm and had a walk in their gardens.
Home now at Gill’s place where Hubert Allen is popping over for a cuppa. His granddad was Roland Allen the “Prophet” and famous missionary.
