Seminary of the 3rd Age – Gary Stuckey
Prayer in Odd Times
Gary is a Uniting Church Minister currently serving in the Seacliff UC Congregation. Prior to this he was the Director of the Stillpoint Spirituality Centre and Minister of the Stillpoint Faith Community. He has taught courses in Christian Spiritualty at Uniting College. With a particular interest in Monastic Spirituality he has been a life professed Brother in monastic community since 2001.
The poet W. H. Auden described St. John of the Cross as, “An Odd Ball, in and Odd Country at an Odd Time.” We might describe the times in which we live as ‘odd’. How might John’s reflections on the Dark Night inform, guide and encourage our life of prayer in these times? How might his wisdom nurture our prayer when God seems absent and/or our prayer seems ‘dry’?
We hope to record each session and make the video available on the PCNet and ELC website at the begining of September.
