Join us for a virtual program celebrating the Feast Day of Julian of Norwich. During this program, we will explore Julian of Norwich's witness to God’s radically inclusive love and the compassion this calls us to embrace, for ourselves and others, in her visionary text.
Rev. Mark S. Burrows, Ph.D. is much in demand as a retreat leader and speaker on the convergence of spirituality and the arts, theology and mysticism. A scholar of historical theology whose academic work explores the intersection of theology and spirituality, he has lived with Julian’s visionary text for decades, devoting his energies to understanding her thought in his academic work as well as leading retreats on her spiritual wisdom across the United States and Europe, for those she called her “evencristen,” or fellow Christians. An oblate of Glastonbury Abbey, a Benedictine monastery near Boston, Burrows is also a poet and award-winning translator of German literature. His most recent volume of poems, The Chance of Home, was published in 2018 by Paraclete Press, and he wrote two further volumes of meditative poems with Jon M. Sweeney, inspired by the mystical writings of Meister Eckhart: Meister Eckhart’s Book of the Heart (2017) and Meister Eckhart’s Book of Secrets (2019). He currently lives in Camden, Maine. www.msburrows.com
