  1. Hi Margaret,
    I have just started reading Rooted in Love, sent to me by a friend, and well, I’m feelin’ some serious pulling at my roots…. 🙂 Do you have any more upcoming events here in CT towards the end of the year? Kind regards & thanks for writing that book!

    • Hi there,
      I don’t have any other events planned at this stage. But there may be a few science and spirituality talks happening in November – I’ll put them up once the dates and venues have been confirmed.

  2. Dear Margaret,
    I am enjoying Rooted in Love thoroughly – it is so rooted in practical Christianity!
    I would like to give a copy to my daughter-in-law. How can I get hold of a copy? Thanks so much.

  3. Hi Margaret
    Your book Rooted in love has been a tremendous blessing and gift to me. It has awakened a desire in me to further explore Ignatian Spirituality and I must say it has been a blessing. Thanks for writing such an accessible book on Ignatian Spirituality. I undertook to conduct an Advent Quiet Day at a former parish where the participants were led through Ignatian meditations and the feedback was profound and both humbled and blessed me.
    I have been newly appointed as Rector at St Catherine’s Bramley (Johannesburg) and I really would like to offer the congregation the gift and blessing of what you have shared in your book and therefore I would like to invite you to come and address the congregation on your book Rooted in love and offer practical guidance on how what you have shared in the book has help us on our spiritual growth journey. Would it be possible to let me know your availability over the next months and perhaps even into 2017?
    I would greatly appreciate it.
