A message from Julia Lall, Spiritual Director 2019 - 2021
I was licensed as Spiritual Director on 25th July 2019 by Dean Joe at our annual Eucharist at the Cathedral. I am Rector of South Hartismere Benefice near the Suffolk/ Norfolk border, and I made my Cursillo at Weekend #32.
My charge from Bishop Mike for the next three years is to embed recent changes, seek God’s affirmation for all that we do, and create a sense of anticipation for what God is drawing us on to. There is a real sense of excitement at the ongoing promise of Cursillo in terms of discipleship, nurturing vocation, and our personal faith journeys.
A significant text for me throughout this year comes from Isaiah 43.19
‘For I give water in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert’
Living water was the theme for our Cursillo retreat last weekend, when we were able to reflect on the life-giving water that comes from God to refresh and revive us.
I have been reflecting that the Cursillo movement is like a flowing stream that constantly moves and evolves, as it shapes the environment around it. In Cursillo, we are called to shape our environment through prayer, study and action, so that we can deepen our discipleship and share the love of God in our homes, our communities, at work and in our churches.
I look forward to journeying with you for the next three years.
