Janic Springer leads the small group in the rituals and prayers of Celtic Spirituality, an ancient form of Christianity.
I believe Spirit infuses matter.
I have a deep reverence for creation.
I value the gospels and I am curious about ancient texts not in the Bible.
I find meaning in original blessing rather than original sin.
I recognize the Divine in the Deep Feminine and the Deep Masculine.
I perceive a cosmic unity; everything is connected.
I find God in the ordinary experiences of my life.
If you resonate with some of these statements, you may find meaning in Celtic Spirituality, an ancient form of Christianity. Join us as we participate in practices based on the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Mary, ancient texts discovered in Egypt in 1945. We’ll explore rituals from the Celtic world of the British Isles and the south of France. We will write, read, and speak our own and traditional prayers and blessings of the day and night, the seasons of Earth, ritual days, and thresholds. We will draw on poetry, prose, art, and the natural world.
Meeting times are 1:00-4:00 p.m. on Saturday July 17 and Sunday July 18. We will meet outdoors in the UCC Courtyard. The building will be open for restrooms and in case of inclement weather. We will wear masks and socially distance. Please stay home if you feel ill.
Bring what you will need to feel comfortable (sweater, sun hat, water bottle, tea or coffee, etc.). Bring your own lawn chair if you are able, and a pen and notebook or e-tablet.
