The Kitchen Table

There I stood at the door unaware my presence was already known, confused that I was expected, yet basking in the scent of baking bread beckoning me home. The cooking pot on the stove was larger than I had ever seen, animatedly exhaling the scent of pure love, bowed adoration bubbling from within. The radio... Continue Reading →

Eucharist essence…

I’ve spent the last few days transcribing one interview in particular for my MA dissertation project which is exploring contemplative photography as a tool for missional prayer. We were off topic for a moment as we spoke about black and white photography and how it works by stripping everything back except that which the artist... Continue Reading →

The Ritual of the Eucharist

In preparation for a Quiet Day I am leading on Contemplative Photography at Launde Abbey I asked a colleague whether they would mind me photographing them as they celebrated the Eucharist.

Whilst slightly hard-going literature, reading specifically around Cranmer's theology of the #eucharist and how that informed the #liturgy he wrote has got me thinking.
