    A Holy Island Pilgrimage: A personal reflection route around the Upper Springs.

    , ,
    This  booklet contains fourteen reflections, originally written for Easter Sunday 2019, each one associated with a particular place on Holy Island. You can use one or more of these reflections to help you to revisit this precious place, our Upper Springs. When first used, they were intended to help Companions prepare for the Easter Sunday renewal of our Vows of Availability and Vulnerability. Our hope is that, at any time of year, reflection on the stories and places on Holy Island which connect most with our own ‘lived’ experiences, can help our vows to become more personal and poignant.  Videos of these reflections can be viewed by using the the weblinks at the top of each reflection and listed together on page 17. You can use these in preparation for your visit, after it, or as you go around the Island, if you have a Smart phone with you.  In addition, this booklet includes a scratch-off code to enable you to download the pdf booklet.

    Be stronger than each storm in me A4 print

    , , ,
    Lynda Owen-Hussey, a companion with the Northumbria Community, is a mixed media artist living on the shores of the West Coast of Ireland in County Kerry, close to the birthplace of St Brendan. These days, her work is inspired by the many gifts of the sea she encounters on walks along the shore, often pondering the life of St Brendan and the many monks of old who inhabited this land. In describing this original artwork Lynda says:

    This artwork is inspired by a verse in the Northumbria Community’s Brendan Liturgy:

         Christ of the mysteries, can I trust you to be stronger than each storm in me?

    We read that Brendan and his companions cried out in prayer as they encountered storms on the ocean, trusting God as they sailed on in search of the land of promise. In Mark 6 we find Jesus’s disciples in a boat straining against the wind and becoming terrified as they see Jesus walking out to them over the water. He calls out to his disciples ‘Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.’ As he climbs into the boat the wind ceases. We too can cry out to God when we find ourselves in the midst of life’s storms trusting that Jesus is with us always.

    Celtic Daily Prayer 1: Daily Readings: Finan: July: PDF download

    , ,
    This downloadable pdf contains the Finan daily readings from CDP1 (The Journey Begins) for the month of July. The city without a church These readings are extracted from The City Without a Church by Henry Drummond. An introduction: The City Without a Church is a meditation by Henry Drummond on a selection of verses from Revelation chapters 21 (verses 2 and 22) and 22 (verses 2 and 3). Extracts from it feature in the Finan series of readings for July in Celtic Daily Prayer and it has become an important text for the Northumbria Community because it deals with ‘church without walls’ and ‘kingdom in the streets’; in fact it dovetails very neatly with the Community’s Rule which states: We embrace the challenge to live as ‘church without walls’, living openly amongst unbelievers and other believers in a way that the life of God in ours can be seen, challenged or questioned. This will involve us building friendships outside our Christian ghettos or club-mentality, not with ulterior evangelistic motives, but because we genuinely care.   When you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to download your pdf.  The link will expire in 3 days, although we imagine you will have downloaded it long before then!

In three of his books Peculiar Treasures: A Biblical Who’s Who; Wishful Thinking: A Seeker’s ABC and Whistling in the Dark: A Doubter’s Dictionary, he tries to dust-off and put the colour back into Biblical characters, religious words, and ordinary words, respectively.

In the World This month of readings seeks to help us push past the artificial divide between the secular and the sacred, the physical and the spiritual, the body and the soul, and move, as Barbara Brown Taylor says, towards "trusting that there is no way to God apart from real life in the real world". later this month we will hear from Charles Ringma, but we begin with excerpts from An Altar in the World by Barbara Brown Taylor.  Here are some words from her introduction: Whoever you are, you are human. Wherever you are, you live in the world, which is just waiting for you to notice the holiness in it. So welcome to your own priesthood, practised at the altar of your own life.

    Celtic Daily Prayer 2: Daily Readings: Colman: September: PDF download

    , ,
    This downloadable pdf contains the Colman daily readings from CDP2 (Further Up and Further In) for the month of September. Hospitality: When we say YES to the practice of hospitality, do we immediately think of inviting our friends around for a meal with a good bottle of wine? Does hospitality for us mean a pleasant social setting, food and drink shared with people we like and in places where we are comfortable? Our understanding and lifestyle may have become quite limited, for hospitality has far broader possibilities than these! This month of readings will hopefully help us to expand our narrow definitions of hospitality and encourage us into far more radical ways of opening ourselves to others. In reading the Gospels we find that Christ did indeed share plenty of meals and some wine too with people, but in a way that was out of keeping with the polite practices of the day, that even disturbed polite society. And his practice of hospitality extended beyond the meal table and the home and out onto the roads and waysides, where he journeyed in anticipation of personal encounter with individuals and with crowds, always with an attitude of openness and welcome, available, always vulnerable. These words invite us to re-think our understanding of hospitality, to become braver, let down some barriers, let go of our prejudices, walk headlong into true availability and vulnerability by extending a hospitality of heart.   When you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with a link (CDP2_dailyreadings_Colman_August.pdf) to download your pdf.  The link will expire in 3 days, although we imagine you will have downloaded it long before then!

    This downloadable pdf contains the Eata daily readings from CDP2 (Further Up and Further In) for the month of June. Sermon on the Mount Once upon a time two women were musing over an idea. What would Jesus do with a group who gathered not for Bible study, not for prayer, not for ministry but just to sit at His feet ... to learn? Meanwhile, unaware of this idea, a third woman had a dream while on holiday. One Wednesday morning the idea and the dream fused over coffee. What eventually transpired was a year-long engagement with the Sermon on the Mount as twelve women wrestled with the words – first memorising them, then pondering them, then staging them as a dramatic presentation. Twenty years later we are still under their spell and trying to put them into practice. This month’s meditations, written by Sarah Berry, are stories, experiences, little pieces of wisdom – and the questions that have come from the adventure of walking with Jesus through this sermon.

    City Without a Church: PDF download

    , ,
    This is a downloadable pdf of the booklet "City without a Church" by Henry Drummond, which has been produced as one in a series of booklets exploring responses to one of the basic questions of the Northumbria Community: "How Then Shall We Live?" The city without a church The City Without a Church is a meditation by Henry Drummond on a selection of verses from Revelation chapters 21 (verses 2 and 22) and 22 (verses 2 and 3). Extracts from it feature in the Finan series of readings for July in Celtic Daily Prayer and it has become an important text for the Northumbria Community because it deals with ‘church without walls’ and ‘kingdom in the streets’. Although this meditation is framed in the muscular, self-confident language of the Victorian era, its underlying message to us is as fresh as if it was written yesterday. The message is this: the institutional churches have ‘stolen Christ from the people’. What struck Drummond about John’s vision of the New Jerusalem was not just that he saw a city (rather than some kind of pastoral idyll) but that he saw no temple (or church) there. Although Drummond has hard words for the institutional church, he is by no means anti-church: he just wants it to wake up to the realities of real faith and get its priorities right. For Drummond, this involves getting out of our church buildings and getting totally involved in the concrete realities of our streets − starting right where we are, with the mess of real life all around us. He says that ‘it is only because the secular is so intensely sacred that so many eyes are blind before it.’ When you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to download your pdf.  The link will expire in 3 days, although we imagine you will have downloaded it long before then!

        Lord, I will trust You, help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown. 

    Brendan’s journey begins as his heart is stirred by a vision that takes him beyond his present circumstances and surroundings. In Genesis 12 we find Abram, who like Brendan, followed the call of God to leave the familiar comforts of home and venture towards the land of promise. Sometimes we hear that call ourselves, but oftentimes it is discomfort or the unexpected which proves to be the catalyst that opens us afresh to seeking out new ways as we journey in trust.

Likewise we are called to trust God in the dark and difficult desert days we can find ourselves in.

    Oswald: Return of the King

    , ,
    The exiled family of King AEthelfrith of Northumbria arrive, after much hardship, on the island of Iona, where the monastery founded by St Columba has become a centre of worship and learning. Young Oswald becomes firm friends with a novice, Aidan. When Aidan professes his final vows, Oswald and his little brother Oswy are received into the church. As befits a young prince, Oswald learns to fight. However, Aidan's example attacts him and he is on the point of deciding to become a monk when news reaches Iona that his half brother, Eanfrith, has been killed by Cadwallon, the king who defeated Edwin. Oswald sails back to Northumbria and meets Cadwallon in battle, defeating and killing him. Oswald, now undisputed king of Northumbria, gives Aidan the island of Lindisfarne as his base. But Penda, the last great pagan king in England, is raising troops against him ...

    Oswiu: King of Kings

    , ,
    Oswald's head is on a spike. Can Oswiu avoid the same fate? The great pagan king Penda set a trap, and when the brothers Oswiu and Oswald walked in, only one came back alive. Rumours abound that the place where Oswald's body is strung up has become sacred ground - a site of healing for those who seek it. Oswald's mother believes he will protect those he loves, even beyond the grave. So she asks the impossible of Oswiu: to journey to the heart of Penda's kingdom and rescue the body that was stolen from them. Will this fateful task allow Oswiu to prove himself worthy of uniting the kingdoms under him as the King of Kings, or will it set him on a path to destruction? Oswiu: King of Kings is the masterful conclusion to The Northumbrian Thrones trilogy.

"The inspiration for Sacred North was fuelled by my passion for the early Christian saints. Despite a lifetime of research, we still encountered constant surprises on each of our three long journeys following in the footsteps of these holy men and women, revealing a rich heritage of ancient crosses, remote caves and hidden hermitages, healing wells, ancient chapels, and islands 'at the end of the world'."

    The Abbess of Whitby : A novel of Hild of Northumbria

    Chosen as handmaid to Eostre, the Saxon goddess, Hild would spend a year serving the goddess before she was wed. Her future was mapped out - until her father was murdered, and King Edwin claimed her as kin. Hild's first love was given a key command in Edwin's forces, and vanished from her life, wed to her elder sister. That same day, the court was baptised, ending the people's fertility religion and Hild's role. Life looked bleak - even more so when the husband to whom she was given was killed, along with her child. Hild resented the compulsory baptism, but became intrigued by the Iona priests, and eventually converted. Aidan, the charismatic figure who taught, and lived, a new kind of love, persuaded Hild to help spread the new faith. In thanks for a significant victory, King Oswy ordered her to found one of his new monasteries at Whitby. She would see the men she trained appointed by the Pope as missionary bishops, carrying the faith across Britain.

    The Book of Trees

    ,

    "In the opening lines of “Willow,” a poem in Sean M. Conrey’s latest, The Book of Trees, Saint Columba imagines Christ in a rainless desert, a landscape he knows only through books. The poem ends with a vignette about a monk who perches on Columba’s shoulders to repair a thatched roof in the midst of a downpour—“I’ll admit, it’s a constant struggle to love/the mud on my shoulders where he stood.” With the cadence of prayer, Conrey’s poems conjure the wisdom of a land that hasn’t “forgot to speak for itself” at the very moment when that wisdom begins to be forgotten. A briny and true collection."

    The Creative Spirit: harmonious living with Hildegard of Bingen

    , , , ,
    The figure of Hildegard of Bingen towers both over her own and our present age. Her ideas about healing, the arts, the relationship between science and theology, the interdependence of male and female and the interconnectedness of all living beings with each other and their Creator have extraordinary relevance to our contemporary understanding of these issues. Yet for all Hildegard's astonishing creativity and originality, her spirituality is firmly rooted in the Rule of St Benedict and its emphasis on daily prayer and meditative reading of the Scriptures. This introduction to her life and thought includes many practical spiritual exercises that will enable us to bring Hildegard's wisdom and vision of wholeness to our busy, fragmented lives today.

    The Heart Alone with God

    , , , , ,
    Celtic and Desert spirituality was essentially monastic, and praying was learned in the context of cell (alone) and community (together). There was no separation of praying and living; one flowed from the other. For us too, life is prayer and prayer is life. Making inner space to cultivate the God-life within is at the centre of the contemplative experience, which is entering into the self to be with God. This interior life is also a journey through the darkness and dangers of ‘the world, the flesh and the devil’. This booklet explores how we can thwart even the most ‘devious’ of attacks of the enemy and find inner peace as we understand the full meaning and significance of ‘The Heart Alone with God’.

    Threshold of Light: daily readings from the Celtic tradition

    , ,
    This delightful book draws on one of out richest native spiritual traditions, the Celtic heritage, and presents extracts from Irish, Welsh and Scottish sources in a form suitable for daily meditation. The Celts had an extraordinarily clear spiritual vision, born of close association with nature. They thought in vivid images: making a fire, the wind in the wood, the song of the birds, the white waves of the sea. Yet the sense of light and the sense of incarnation which runs through so much Celtic writing is only possible because of its recognition of the dark of sin and evil, and also its acknowledgement of the power of the cross of the resurrection. A belief in the sacredness of the earth, a belief that the victory of the cross illumines and transforms the everyday, an awareness that despite the dark, heaven is not far from us, all this shines through these pages and brings us into closer contact with these fascinating people.

As a companion for the journey this book offers meditations for the events of life, and liturgies for its seasons. It also provides a two-year cycle of insights and daily reflections with accompanying scripture readings for use in morning and evening prayer. This is a rich treasury that is loved and trusted by individuals, ministers, families, groups and communities across the world.See a sample CDP Book 1 sample

    Celtic Daily Prayer Book 2: Farther Up and Farther In

    , , , , , ,
    Celtic Daily Prayer Book 2: Farther Up and Farther In is the long awaited companion volume to Celtic Daily Prayer Book 1: The Journey Begins, also reissued in a new binding. It contains a further two years of daily readings together with a new set of meditations for each day of the month plus prayers and liturgies that speak into real life as we have experienced it. With the exception of the Daily Offices and Complines, which have been re-issued with melody lines for those parts where a sung version exists, the material included is new. Here you will find additional resources for the Times and Seasons of the year and for Rites of Passage. Here too are liturgies and prayers for the significant events and decisions in life. For those seeking fresh resources for corporate worship there are four new Communion services, an Advent liturgy that could work equally well in either a church or home group setting and fourteen new ‘Follow the Example’ liturgies with suggestions for occasions when they may prove helpful. Beautifully bound in a specially commissioned hardback cover with ribbon markers, this book is built to last. Just as well as we anticipate it becoming as much a part of our journey, alone and together, as its treasured elder sibling! See a sample:CDP Book 2 Sample

    Benedictus: A Book of Blessings

    , , ,
    In sharing words of grace and wisdom, the poet and writer John O'Donohue offers blessings to shelter and comfort us on our journey through life. As he opens our eyes to the natural beauty and splendour of the world that surrounds us, he inspires in us a new confidence and passion for life and helps us to confront key thresholds of human experience. Guided by these blessings and by a reassuring vision of hope and possibility for the present and the future, we begin to recognise that our relationships with one another and even the most seemingly insignificant rituals which frame our days, are crucial to our emotional and spiritual well-being. Through his poetic blessings, John O'Donohue also ignites in us a greater understanding of our innate qualities and, perhaps for the first time, we experience a true sense of belonging in this often troubled world. Drawing on the heritage of ancient Celtic thought and imagination, Benedictus is, ultimately a sanctuary of peace and a gentle, illuminating gift of light on our path through this world.

    Ancient Paths CD

    Anna's first solo album includes some of her 'signature' pieces as well as some songs of her own. Some of you will recognise familiar words from the Complines in Celtic Daily Prayer drawn from Carmina Gadelica and other traditional sources. Here they are set to Anna's own music which has emerged over the years of saying and singing these night-time prayers with her children, Joel and Martha. Anna says, 'I hope you will want to play this album often and that it will capture something of the rhythm of the tides, the sounds of the island and also its stillness.'

    This compilation has been put together by the Lindisfarne Scriptorium in order to introduce the music of three very different sources to a wider market. The band Iona, with its unique sounds mining the rich seams of our Celtic Christian heritage, is represented by Revelation, Here I stand, Columcille and Edge of the World. The singer and composer Jeff Johnson, with his inspirational vocals producing soundscapes of wonder and beauty, is represented by Benediction, Psalmus Theme, Bless the Lord, Navigatio and A Door into Heaven. The Northumbria Community's music is represented by One Thing I Have Asked (from Morning Prayer), I Bind unto Myself This Day (from Waymarks), May the Peace of the Lord Christ (from Morning Prayer), Haven Song (from Waymarks) and My Prayer for You (from Songs of Blessing). Though the musical style of each is very distinctive, these musicians all share a common desire to journey seeking God's mercy and blessing; and in turn to be a blessing to others - especially through their music. Enjoy this thoughtful collection of tracks as a spur to meditation and prayer - or just for the sheer enjoyment of the music. (And may it also prove a spur to the purchase of the albums represented here!) [playlist images="false" ids="8808,8810,8812,8814,8816,8818,8719,8822,8824,8904,8906,8908,8910,8912"]

    Carmina Gadelica: Hymns and Incantations

    , , , ,
    Carmina Gadelica is an anthology of poems and prayers from the Gaelic oral tradition, the most comprehensive ever collected. They came from communities all over the Highlands and Islands of Scotlad, were often shared or performed in the evening ceilidh and therby passed on from generation to generation. Alexander Carmichael complied the collection in the second half of the nineteenth century, and in doing so created a lasting record of a culture and way of life that has now largely disappeared. In the Introduction, Carmichael recounts with great warmth and evident pleasure the hospitality which he received from the people whose songs and stories he was anxious to record "I have three regrets -" he says, "that I had not been earlier collecting, that I have not been more diligent in collecting, and that I am not better qualified to treat what I have collected." Nevertheless, Carmina Gadelica quickly became an invaluable resource for those wanting to study and understand Gaelic culture and for those wanting to experience the beauty and wisdom of its oral literature.

    Celtic Christian Spirituality

    , , ,
    The Celtic Christians beheld the world around them and perceived the divine life of God upholding every aspect of the material universe. Their prayers and poems, their liturgies and their theological texts give Christians a sense of faith that is confident in a merciful and infinitely creative, healing God. In this introduction to Celtic Christian spirituality, Mary C. Earle presents the primary texts from the Celtic Christian tradition - selections from the writings of Pelagius, Eriugena and St Patrick, as well as prayers and poems from Wales, the Outer Hebrides and Ireland. These essential texts direct humanity to read the 'book of creation' as well as the book of scripture, and call us to remember that 'matter matters'. The author's engaging facing-page commentary explores how faithful Christians and spiritual seekers use the writings of this lively tradition as ways of embodying and living the gospel.

    Journeys on the Edges: The Celtic Tradition

    ,
    Thomas O'Loughlin's fresh and original introduction to Celtic Spirituality begins by questioning the very notion of a distinctively 'Celtic' spirituality. Brilliantly re-examining the original sources, he argues that there is one over-arching theme giving them a unity – the idea of being 'on the edge', both culturally and geographically. Journeys on the Edges provides a valuable antidote to the wishful thinking and misconceptions that bedevil much recent writing about the Celtic tradition. Rejecting the claim that a 'Celtic spirituality' can be constructed out of the sparse records of the first millennium, O'Loughlin incisively and eloquently explores the witness of early Christian Ireland, especially for what it reveals about spirituality today.

    Celtic Theology: Humanity, World and God in Early Irish Writings

    ,
    Early Irish society is famous for its contribution to religious art, and many of its saints are still renowned for their holiness. What is far less well known is how that culture expressed itself in theological reflection. This book assumes that very Christian culture gives a specific, local slant to its picture of Christianity; one which reflects its particular concerns, background and tradition of teaching. This book's aim is to draw out some features of this 'local theology' as seen in some of the most famous Celtic authors and texts of the first millennium. It examines the theological framework within which St Patrick presented his experience and looks at how the Celtic lands of Ireland and Wales developed a distinctive view of sin, reconciliation and Christian law which they later exported to the rest of western Christianity. It looks at writers like Adomnan of Iona and at Muirchu who reflected on the meaning of the conversion of his people two centuries later. It surveys how they approach liturgy, sacred time and the Last Things. By examining well-known texts such as the Voyage of St Brendan and books such as the Stowe Missal and the Book of Armagh from the fresh standpoint of formal theology, the book brings familiar texts to lie in a new way. While aimed primarily at those interested in Christianity in Celtic lands, Celtic Theology also fills a long-standing gap in the history of early medieval theology in the west.

    Colonies of Heaven: Celtic Models for Today’s Church

    , ,
    'Celtic' Christianity continues to fascinate us, but is it relevant to the life and witness of the church today? Ian Bradley is convinced that it is; that the building of 'colonies of heaven' drawing on Celtic models provides the way forward for the churches in the twenty-first century. Colonies of Heaven explores how the distinctive themes in the early Christianity of the British Isles – monasticism, blessing and cursing, penance and pastoral care, worship, the communion of saints and pilgrimage – might be applied in practical terms to Christian life today. Building 'colonies of heaven' (communities of prayer, artistic and creative activity, hospitality and team ministry), Bradley argues, would revitalise our churches with a new spiritual and social role in an increasingly secular and fragmented society.

    A quarter-century after writing the acclaimed The Celtic Way, Ian Bradley, one of the foremost experts on the spiritual beliefs and practices of the indigenous Christian communities in the British Isles in the early Middle Ages, revisits the original sources and makes a substantial reappraisal of Celtic spirituality. Following the Celtic Way challenges many of the myths and romanticised portrayals of Celtic Christianity and shows evidence of the harder edge and demanding austerity of the lives and spirituality of believers from this time. This book sits among the most insightful and up-to-date introductions to this distinctive and evocative expression of faith, and draws out its themes that are most relevant to us today. It also offers practical spiritual guidance on how to follow the Celtic Way in the contemporary world.

    Creating Community: Ancient Ways for Modern Churches

    , , ,
    There is much talk today of 'new ways of being church' and 'new monastic spirituality'. As Simon Reed explored the Celtic roots of the Christian faith, in community with others who drew inspiration from our spiritual ancestors in the British Isles, he came to realise that the third-millennium church has much in common with the first-millennium church and, more importantly, much to learn from it. In Creating Community, he introduces us to a new but at the same time very old way of being church which is based upon three core elements: A Way of Life, a network of Soul Friends, and a rhythm of prayer. The book shows how the rediscovery of these elements by Christians today offers a vital key that opens up an ancient way for modern churches, one that not only helps to bring believers to lasting maturity but creates genuine and much-needed community in an increasingly fragmented world.

    Listening for the Heartbeat of God

    , , , ,
    Listening for the Heartbeat of God presents a spirituality for today, modelled on the vital characteristics of Celtic spirituality through the centuries. there is an emphasis on the essential goodness of creation and of humanity, made in the image of God. The book traces the lines of Celtic spirituality from the British Church in the fourth century through to the twentieth century, in the founder of the Iona community, George MacLeod. Philip Newell finds Celtic spiritual roots in the New Testament, in the mysticism of St John the Evangelist. John was especially remembered as the one who lay against Jesus at the Last Supper and heard the heartbeat of God. So he becomes a Celtic image of listening to God in all of life. This fresh angle on Celtic spirituality - linking figures in the Bible and in the British Christian history - will be warmly welcomed by all who are concerned to refresh the roots of their faith. The Revd Dr J Philip Newell is a poet, scholar and teacher. Formerly Warden of Iona Abbey, he is now Companion Theologian for the American Spirituality Centre of Casa del Sol in the high desert of New Mexico. Newell has won international acclaim for his work in the field of Celtic spirituality.

    Followers of the Way: Ancient discipleship for modern Christians

    , , ,
    One of the most pressing issues in today's church is encouraging people to become true and effective disciples of Jesus Christ. If, in simple terms, discipleship is about connecting more deeply with God and connecting God with the whole of life, Simon Reed argues, we're looking at a life-long process for which we require long-term skills rather than short-term courses. The Celtic and Desert Christians, drawing on Old and New Testament practices, taught and modelled how to do this through the practice of living by a Way of Life. By drawing together today's need for disciples and Celtic Christianity, Followers of the Way inspires authentic Christian discipleship for the contemporary world.

    How the Irish saved civilisation

    , ,
    From the fall of Rome to the rise of Charlemagne – the 'dark ages' – learning, scholarship and culture disappeared from the European continent. The great heritage of Western civilisation – from the Greek and Roman classics to Jewish Christian works – would have been utterly lost were it not for the holy men and women of the unconquered Ireland. In this delightful and illuminating look into a crucial but little-known 'hinge' of history, Thomas Cahill takes us to the 'island of saints and scholars', the Ireland of St Patrick and the Book of Kells. Here, far from the barbarian despoliation of the continent, monks and scribes labouriously, lovingly, even playfully preserved the West's written treasury. With the return of stability in Europe, these Irish scholars were instrumental in spreading learning. Thus the Irish not only were conservators of civilisation, but became shapers of the medieval mind, putting their unique stamp on Western civilisation.

    Living on the Border: Reflections on the Experience of Threshold

    There is a traditional saying of ancient wisdom: 'A threshold is a sacred thing. In some places of the world, in some traditional cultures and in monastic life, this is still remembered. It is something, however, that we often forget today. To take time to pause at a threshold - be it a place, or a moment between one action and the next - is to show reverence for the handling of space and time, and respect for those who we meet. Pausing allows us to let go of all the demands and expectations of the previous activity, and to prepare for the encounter with another. Esther de Waal explores what this ancient wisdom has to teach us about our public lives in the world today.

    Songs of the Isles: Selections from Carmina Gadelica

    , , ,
    The isles in the title of this book are the Hebrides which lie between the west of Scotland and the north of Ireland, and the songs are the prayers an blessings which originated there between the sixth and ninth centuries. They remained a purely oral tradition until a hundred years ago when Alexander Carmichael collected and published them as Carmina Gadelica, the source book that led to the revival of Celtic spirituality today. These prayers and songs capture the remarkable spiritual vision of a people keeping faith through good and ill, ekeing out an existence in a world that was often harsh and inhospitable. They rejoice at the birth of a child o a good harvest, glory in natural beauty, lament in suffering, cry out for help or protection, and invoke God's blessing on even the most humble tasks. Until now we have only known them in the Victorian language of Carmichael's collection, bu in Kathleen Jones' fresh translation, thir poetic simplicity and power is fully revealed and we hear authentic Celtci voices speaking with conviction about life and death, hearth and home, land and sea, and the journey of the soul beneath the protecting power of heaven.

I dwell safely within the circle of Thy care. I cannot for a moment fall out of the everlasting arms. I am on my way to glory.

This lovely volume contains a series of meditations on forty prayers, whose rhythm and earthiness offer a more natural way of conversing with God. For if we are to know God, we must spend time with him, sharing our concerns – as the Celtic peoples did so simply and naturally. And as we learn to rest in the presence of the One who is ever with us, so we will be drawn increasingly into the mystery and wonder of his love.

    The Holy Island of Lindisfarne

    David Adam has been captivated by the beauty, wonder and holiness of Lindisfarne since first glimpsing its fairytale castle from the train as a young boy. In this absorbing volume, he shows the island's human face, revealing how Lindisfarne and its people have responded to trial, tribulation and triumph in the course of a long and vibrant history. This tiny place witnessed one of the last stands of the 'British' Celtic peoples against the invading Anglo-Saxons in the 6th century. It has been the home of saints and scholars, most notably St. Aidan and St. Cuthbert, and famously produced the medieval masterpiece known as the "Lindisfarne Gospels". Less familiar to readers, perhaps, will be that the island experienced the first recorded Viking invasion in 793, and was involved in the 17th century Civil War and the 18th century Jacobite Rebellion. Today its ruined 11th century Priory and 16th century Castle - later redesigned by the great English architect Edwin Lutyens - draw pilgrims and visitors from all over the world. Wherever you walk on Lindisfarne, the past impinges on the present...In relating afresh many of the island's legends and stories, David Adam's lovely volume affords the reader a wonderful sense of all there is to discover, just beneath the surface.

    The Voyage of St Brendan: Journey to the Promised Land

    The Voyage of Saint Brendan – Journey to the Promised Land (Translated from Latin by John J. O’Meara) John J. O’Meara has here translated one of the most famous and enduring stories of western Christendom, the Navigatio Sancti Brendan Abates, written in Ireland perhaps as early as the year 800. While the routes of Saint Brendan’s journeys remain a subject of controversy, the tale itself is of great interest – a strongly integrated text which derives from several centuries of Irish literary tradition. The Voyage of Saint Brendan presents the late Professor O’Meara’s translation of the only scientific edition of the original Latin text, with his introduction, and is illustrated by the relevant woodcuts from a German version of the tale, Sankt Brandans Seefahrt, printed in Augsburg in 1476.

    The Wonder of the Beyond

    ,
    by David Adam Over fifty joyous years, David Adam has exercised a rich and profoundly influential ministry. His origins were humble if romantic: his father, an itinerant laborer, and mother, a traveller, had their first momentous encounter at the west end of Loch Ness on a summer’s day in the early 1930’s. They were married within a week. David was born in Alnwick, Northumberland, a few years later, and encouraged from his earliest days to use his eyes to absorb what was around him. He writes: “ I lived in a land of open fields, moorland and beaches: a land of castles, of history, of heroes, saints and story… a radiant world… full of the mystery of existence.” The aim of The Wonder of Beyond is primarily to help us enter David Adam’s own words, ‘ a wonder-filled world’; to open our eyes, ears and hearts to what is about us; to become truly aware of the glory of God in our midst.

    Walking the Edges: Living in the Presence of God

    ,
    Walking the Edges – Living in the Presence of God – David Adam What does it mean to live in the presence of God? Combining story with spiritual reflection, poems and prayers, Walking the Edges invites us to journey to the borderlands, the place inhabited by Christians willing to extend themselves in adventurous living for the sake of love. Here, on the edges of the unknown, God the great Other is ever to be found. Each time we open our eyes to beauty, to wonder, to mystery, our lives are renewed. Every time we fail to reach out beyond the solid and the comfortable, we kill the life that is in us though the outcome of various events in our lives may be unknown; God continually calls us from death to life, promising an abiding presence and glorious future. Walking the Edges draws on the stories of St Martin, St Ninian, St Patrick, St Oswald and St Cuthbert. It also offers an insight into David Adam’s childhood, his early life as a coal miner, and his unexpected call to the pastoral ministry which has been a blessing to so many around the world.

    The Book of Creation: The practice of Celtic Spirituality

    ,
    In the Celtic tradition, God speaks through two books: the Bible and creation. Influenced by the wisdom tradition of the Old Testament and the mysticism of John’s Gospel, Celtic spirituality sees creation not simply as a gift, but as a self-giving of God. His image is to be found deep within all living things: sin might bury his living presence, but never erases it. His voice can be heard speaking through all created things. For centuries, the view that the world is alienated from God has damaged our understanding of creation, but today, as many are rediscovering their Celtic heritage, we are again learning to reverence creation as the dwelling place of God. This original and exciting book takes us on an exploration of each of the days of creation as recorded in Genesis and introduces us to a very practical Celtic spirituality, which will open our eyes to recognize the presence of God all around.

    Echo of the Soul: The Sacredness of the Human Body

    , ,
    What does it mean to be made 'in the image and likeness of God'? This is the first and defining characteristic of our humanity celebrated in the opening pages of the Bible. Its subsequent record is of the struggle between good and evil in human life, a tension that we face daily within ourselves and in the relationships of our lives. Western Christian tradition has often given the impression, and sometimes explicitly taught that this tension is primarily between the soul and the body. The result has been a denigration of the human body and distrust of our deepest physical desires. We no longer recognise within ourselves the characteristics of the divine image. Yet written into the vey fabric of our being in the mystery, wisdom, strength, beauty, creativity, eternity and presence of God. This profound and challenging book clears away centuries of misunderstanding, confusion and shame that have damaged our self-perception. Drawing on both Jewish and Celtic Christian sources of spirituality, Philip Newell leads us to discover the sacredness of our souls and our bodies. Our present day assumptions about love, beauty, sexuality and worth are transformed by this truly ground-breaking book.
