The Cathedral through the Abbey
The Bible lists the signs of a life guided by God. It is a list of attitudes and behaviours: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Christians, and others, know that it is not easy keeping to this list. There are things in our lives which make us behave in ways that are impatient, ungenerous, unkind, less than loving. For the six weeks before Easter (known as Lent), Christians reflect carefully and deeply on their lives and their relationship with God. It's a time to do something about the things in our lives that make us behave in unchristian ways. St. Edmundsbury Cathedral is a good place to reflect in this way. You are welcome to visit and reflect on your life.
