'Love is the meaning' is the phrase chosen by the mystic 14th century writer Julian of Norwich to encapsulate all that had been revealed to her in the series of visions that led her to write one of world's greatest spiritual books, her Revelations of Divine Love which continues to inspire countless readers today.Its everyday imagery and warm intimacy set it apart from other great spiritual classics. Ann Lewin uses its homely qualities to provide the basis for an exploration of our own experiences of the spiritual life, and as we search for answers to life's big questions:How can we hold fast to the truth of God's love in the face of suffering and disaster?Does prayer change anything?How can Julian help us to speak freshly about God to our world?What do we do when God seems far away and silent?Can we actually believe that 'all will be well' as Julian did?These and other questions are explored here.
