OPEN AFTERNOON IN THE CHURCH
The afternoon went well. 15 people came to each of the Readings on Silence sessions and other people visited between times. As promised I will list the four books from which I read extracts:
The Spirit of Silence by John Lane
A Book of Silence by Sara Maitland
In Pursuit of Silence by George Prochnik
Art Objects (Essays on Ecstasy and Effrontery) by Jeanette Winterson
I have completed this two month Residency with food for thought and ideas for development. In the Saturday Guardian there is a review for Alex Bellos’s book on mathematics: Alex through the Looking Glass. This is a follow up to Alex in Numberland. Never did it cross my mind that I might be interested in numbers and geometry but working in the Church for two months has thrown up unexpected and exciting new directions.
