Rowan Williams was born in Swansea and later studied and taught theology in Cambridge and Oxford before becoming Bishop of Monmouth in 1992. He was Archbishop of Wales from 1999 to 2002 and Archbishop of Canterbury from 2002 to 2012, after which he became Master of Magdalene College in Cambridge. In 2020 he retired to Cardiff where he lives with his wife Jane, also a theologian and teacher. He has written many books on theology and spirituality, including "Being Christian", "Being Human", "Meeting God in Paul" and "Looking East in Winter".'
'The so-called "Jesus Prayer" ("Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon me, a sinner") is a way of refocusing attention on God in any and every situation, and many Eastern Christian writers have discussed it in detail. This session will look both at its development and its practical use today.'
The maximum number of participants in each workshop is limited, so book early to avoid disappointment!
