We welcome two guests to our Worship. Rev. Ivan Gregan of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, will share his long time interest and research of the Celtic faith and practice…and local musician Amy Steven will offer special music from the Celtic tradition.
The Scripture is from John 1 and focuses on images of Word and Light and Life, which are very prominent in the Christian heritage that developed in the Celtic world. Hope you can tune in on Sunday or throughout the week for this taste of Celtic Worship!
– J. Philip Newell
In the morning light, O God,
may I glimpse your image deep within me
the threads of eternal glory
woven into the fabric of every man and women.
Again may I catch sight of the mystery of the human soul
fashioned in your likeness
deeper that knowing
more enduring that time.
And in glimpsing these threads of light
amidst the weakness and distortions of my life
let me be recalled
to the strength and beauty deep in my soul.
Let me be recalled
to the strength and beauty of you image in every living soul.
– from the same book:
May the light of God illumine the heart of my soul.
May the flame of Christ kindle me to love.
May the fire of the Spirit free me to live this day, tonight, and for ever.
