Listening to Your Life: Quiet Day with Bishop Frank Griswold and Barbara Braver

‘Listening to Your Life’: All invited for

June 3 L.A. Quiet Day with 25th Presiding

Bishop Frank Griswold, poet Barbara Braver

 

St. James’ in-the-City sets Pentecost weekend events

 

The Episcopal Church’s 25th Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold and longtime poet-writer colleague Barbara Braver will lead a June 3 quiet day titled “Listening to Your Life” at St. James’ in the City, Wilshire Center. Everyone is invited to attend the 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m. program, says the Rt. Rev. Catherine Roskam, bishop-in-charge of St. James’ Church.

Well known for conducting compelling retreats and days of spiritual reflection in dioceses and monasteries across the United States and abroad – including the U.K., Korea and Cuba, Griswold and Braver return to the Southland having led similar offerings in Santa Barbara and Echo Park. Their upcoming quiet day will focus, appropriate to Pentecost, on leadings of the Holy Spirit.             

“When we listen to our lives we explore the subtle and urgent movements of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in the world,” the presenters note. “The Spirit ‘speaks’ in many ways using enticement and surprise, as well as stealth and the seemingly mundane. How can we better hear what the Spirit is saying?”

Griswold, who also is scheduled to preach and officiate at St. James’ Pentecost services on June 4 at 8 and 10:30 a.m., frequently speaks and writes on themes of Ignatian and Benedictine spirituality. He led the Episcopal Church as presiding bishop and primate from 1998 to 2006 after serving as bishop of the Diocese of Chicago.

A collaborator with Griswold on several books including a new title due out later this year, Braver, was communication assistant in the Presiding Bishop’s Office for some 18 years while a close associate of the late writer Madeleine L’Engle. She enriches retreat settings by engaging poetry and other writings.   

The quiet day is set to open with coffee and conversation at 9:30 a.m. with the program beginning at 10 a.m. Lunch will be served. A free-will contribution of $10 toward lunch will be appreciated, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Advance reservations may be placed by email to lazeltine@stjla.org.

Unmetered parking is available on St. Andrews Place and Gramercy Place; paid parking is available in nearby lots. St. James’ Church is located at 3903 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, one block west of the Western Avenue Metro station. For further information, phone 213.388.3417, or visit www.stjla.org.
