Faith an’ begorah! It’s St. Patty’s day!
So what would our favorite snake-charming leprechaun think of what’s become of his tradition (notwithstanding the fact we just referred to him as a snake-charming leprechaun!)?
The Celtic tradition in Christianity is actually a deep and important part of our heritage, and is perhaps one of the most often overlooked in the 21st Century church. Marked by a deep connection with nature, an organic faith rooted in trinitarian theology, Celtic spirituality opens the doors for us to experience the Christ through contemplation and mysticism and its own unique liturgical movements.
Especially important to Celtic spirituality is the notion of “thin places:” those spaces (both physical and in relationships) where the realms of heaven and earth seem to be so near they almost overlap.
This Sunday at New Wineskins, we’ll hoist a glass (green beer if you like, although good St. Pat would firmly disagree!) to our Celtic ancestors and discuss ways we can add richness to our own practices by bringing some of theirs into our world today.
Please plan to join us Sunday, March 17, in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company as we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by learning more about Celtic Spirituality!
Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm
Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
