Spiritual Teachings of Elizabeth Goudge
By Elspeth Parris, who wrote it as part of a 'certificate in theology' course at St Michael's College, Cardiff. She says of the piece; "my last module was on spirituality. We were asked to write about someone who had inspired our own spirituality - the assumption was that we would choose one of the spiritual 'greats' such as Augustine, St John of the Cross or St Julian of Norwich. I chose to write about Elizabeth Goudge because she has been such a strong influence in my own life.” Summer2012
