This Sunday, August 23 at 9:45am, we gather for our second annual Celtic Spirituality Sunday. The ancient Celtic Christian tradition introduced many distinctive insights and practices to the wider Church. In the past century, there has been revived interest in Celtic spirituality among Christians of all denominations who are attracted by its emphasis on the presence of God in nature and the sacredness of everyday life. In The Center is Everywhere: Celtic Spirituality for the Post Modern Age, Rev. Dr. Bruce Epperly writes, “The way of Celtic Christian spirituality finds divine revelation in the cells of bodies, the glistening waters, the colors of the rainbow, and the human imagination. Celtic spirituality experiences God in all things and all things in God. God is found in the rising of the sun and the rising of the Crucified One.”
This Sunday, the Rev. Connie Bickford will lead us in worship. Rev. Dr. Dianne Carpenter will play the organ for us. We will sing several hymns from the contemporary Celtic Christian tradition.
The service will include a reflective Giving of Ourselves practice and our final children’s message of the season. Help us send off our beloved Donald Dragon!
