Lenten Book Group 2022 | by The Friends of Julian of Norwich
Prayer material and guided prayer.
God does not despise what He has made…For as the body is clad in the cloth, and the flesh in the skin, and the bones in the flesh, and the heart in the trunk, so are we, soul and body, clad and enclosed in the goodness of God. Yes, and more closely, for all these vanish and waste away; the goodness of God is always complete, and closer to us, beyond any comparison. For truly our lover desires the soul to adhere to Him with all its power, and us always to adhere to His goodness…For it is so preciously loved by Him who is highest that this surpasses the knowledge of all created beings. That is to say, there is no created being that can know how much and how sweetly and how tenderly the Creator loves us…God wishes to be seen, and He wishes to be sought, and He wishes to be expected, and He wishes to be trusted.40 Day Journey with Julian of Norwich; Lisa E.

A suggestion was made during our introductory and orientation session that for some people, journaling might not be the best way to review their prayer. I commented that Praying in Colour might be a good alternative – it is what I intend to do. I have written about it before and if you would like to read more about it, you can find that information here.
