That Divine Eccentric: Caryll Houselander

“In every passerby, everywhere - Christ . . . He is in everyone - there can be no outcasts.”

- Caryll Houselander

Offered virtually via Zoom

Born in Bath, England, in 1901, Caryll Houselander began having mystical experiences at the age of ten. By her early 20s she believed strongly that Christ is to be found in all people.

With no formal theological education, she became a prolific spiritual author of prose and poetry, a spiritual guide, and a religious artist.  She was also known for her zany wit, salty language, and love interest in a Russian spy.

We will look at the overall messages of her mystic vision and how they continue to provide inspiration today, nearly 70 years after her death at age 53 of breast cancer.
