For many Christians, the world equates with "worldliness" and it is to be avoided for fear of damage to their spiritual health. Celtic Christianity differs from this in that it sees in all creation the reflection of God's goodness and beauty which sin might mar, but can never destroy. This book explores the Celtic view of creation and each chapter focuses on an aspect of God revealed in creation to transform our view of created matter. J Philip Newell is a leading author in the field of Celtic spirituality including Celtic Benediction, Sounds of the Eternal, Listening for the Heartbeat of God and other popular titles. Previously Warden of Iona Abbey, and Warden of Spirituality in the Diocese of Portsmouth, he is presently based in Edinburgh and is engaged full time in writing and speaking.

Urban Iona is a modern Celtic tale of healing and vision during and after the author’s pilgrimage to Iona and Ireland and Scotland. Upon his return, a dream takes flesh for his church as an urban Celtic monastery, a gathering of pilgrims open to the world and serving those most in need. This is a powerful account of the author’s search for his family’s story, and the meaning and inspiration that story brought to his life and his ministry. Chronicled here is the author’s pilgrimage to Ireland—not as a travelogue but as deep, moving, often humorous reflection on the meaning of what he discovered there. More important, the book chronicles the author’s efforts to put into action the unique brand of Celtic spirituality he took away from his pilgrimage, in the form of Brigid’s Table, a ministry to prostitutes and other marginalized people in the inner city of Portland, Oregon. Also included are suggestions for applying this spirituality in other parishes, other places, and other lives.

The Way of Living is the prayer and liturgy resource for the Lindisfarne Community, a new monastic religious order in the broadly Anglican-Celtic tradition. The motherhouse of the community is in Ithaca, NY. At the heart of the ancient monastic tradition was an emphasis on daily prayer and Bible reading. In the new monasticism, we are again finding our spiritual basis in a disciplined life of prayer, study, work and rest. The idea of a Daily Office is an ancient one in the Christian church. The daily prayers, Psalms, readings and meditations make for a balanced spiritual practice. The Way of Living is intended to be flexible and can be read each morning and/or evening or at some other suitable time. This edition is unique in using inclusive language for all its prayers, Bible readings, meditations, Psalms and Canticles, the "little songs" of scripture. You can read about the Lindisfarne Community on their website: http://www.lindisfarnecommunity.org You may contact them by e-mail: [email protected]

Religion today is in competition with the leisure and entertainment industries. Gen Y, the postmodern generation, is open to spirituality; but most of today’s young adults have not been born into faith communities where they feel any lasting allegiance. Studies suggest that for the young, belief in God is an optional matter, a virtual consumer choice. As a result, different trends in worship and worship styles are offered by different churches to suit lifestyles, attitudes, and personal taste. In this comprehensive and lively survey, Bryan Spinks examines postmodern worship trends including hip hop, praise and worship songs, emerging worship, blended worship, the U2 Eucharist service, the Roman Catholic rethinking of Vatican II, contemporary Celtic worship, the Zaire Mass in Africa, liquid worship, Vineyard and Hillsong worship, the snake-handling holiness churches of the American south, and other emerging forms of alternative worship.

Das Johannesevangelium ist einer der bekanntesten und schwierigsten Texte des Neuen Testaments und hat mit seiner poetischen Sch nheit und tiefen Spiritualit t bereits viele Interpreten besch ftigt. Von besonderer Kraft und klarer Vision ist die Deutung von Johannes Scotus Eriugena, des irischen Weisen aus dem 9. Jahrhundert. Seine Homilie ber den Prolog dieses Evangeliums, die im Mittelalter sehr einflussreich war, ist eines der fr hesten Zeugnisse keltisch-christlicher Mystik und deutet die Schrift au ergew hnlich originell und inspiriert. Auf den Schwingen des Adlers (dem traditionellen christlichen Symbol f r Johannes) tr gt Eriugena den Leser empor und l sst ihn den Ursprung des Universums und sein eigenes Wesen aus einer Perspektive schauen, die weit ber die Welt der Erscheinungen hinausgeht. F r Eriugena ist Gott transzendent in seinem unerschaffenen Wesen und gleichzeitig immanent in seiner erschaffenen Natur. Diese hat sich im Anfang von Gott entfremdet und ist nun aufgefordert, zu ihm zur ckzukehren. Jesus, das Fleisch gewordene Wort, erinnert den Menschen an sein wahres Wesen und seine Bestimmung zur R ckkehr in die Einheit allen Seins. Dieses Buch erschlie t die Homilie Eriugenas in der wunderbaren bersetzung und mit den ausf hrlichen Reflexionen von Christopher Bamford, dem renommierten Autor und Herausgeber auf dem Gebiet der westlichen Spiritualit t.

Using anecdotes from his own experience at Graceland, Kimball presents six creative models, providing real-life examples of each type.

Discover an ancient way of prayer that leads us to new union with God. "Long ago," Calvin Miller writes, "when the Celts built their own rustic kingdom of God in what would later be the British Isles, their fervor in prayer washed their world in a vital revival." In uncertain and dangerous days of high infant-mortality rates, leprosy and plagues, the Celts breathed candid prayers out of the reality of their lives: Desperate prayers for protection. Praise for the God who was king over all creation. Honest prayers of confession. In these pages, Miller introduces us to six types of Celtic prayer that can connect us to God more deeply by helping us pray out of the circumstances and uncertainties of our own life. "This book proposes a kind of prayer that can end our amputated feelings of separateness from God," says Miller. What was true for the Celts is still true for us: "Hunger for Christ keeps us talking to God till our separation is swallowed up in our unending togetherness with him." As rich as the faith they describe, these pages lead us on an ancient path that gives guidance for present and future prayers, until the day the Celts longed for, when all separation is gone and we live forever in the presence of God.
