Seven Sacred Spaces
George Lings spent an extended time with us at the Northumbria Community in 2009 and during this and other visits and studies brought together some key thinking about healthy communities.
During his stay he facilitated a teaching and discussion weekend around this and other topics and it was during this weekend that George admits he added the seventh sacred space – the chapter house. What makes a healthy Christian community? George Lings, director of Church Army’s Research Unit, believes we have much to learn from monastic communities.
