I want to explore this whole area of Celtic life, specifically the Celtic Christian ethos, which is not about religion, but about relationships, with God, with others (whatever their beliefs) with nature, homelife, creativity, etc. ‘Learning from the good ones of old’. Looking at the Celtic ‘saints’. This is part of our Northumbria Community evening prayer but I also found it in lots of places on the internet.
given by St Columba to his disciples on his death-bed
See that you be at peace among yourselves, my children,
and love one another.
Follow the example of good men of old,
and God will comfort you and help you,
both in this world
and in the world which is to come. Amen.
It is my journey as a ‘pilgrim’, in the widest sense of the word, but as Celtic Christianity sees no separation between secular/sacred/spiritual I shall include all areas, such as prayer, family, places, legends, patchwork, stories, food, wildlife etc
