Some of those who gathered in the Lady Chapel today for the Quiet Afternoon. The theme was the components and dynamics of prayer. Inspired by the insights of Ignatius Loyola we followed meditations presented in Prayer Book by Alan Walker (Godsfield Press 2003). This text had its origins in spirituality workshops for people of different faiths given at the Chaplaincy in the University of Westminster. So as well as Biblical texts we also considered a few from the Qu'ran, Upanishads and Buddhist and Sikh scriptures.
