Mini-Retreat: Celtic Spirituality - Nature as Divinity
Time & Location
About the Event
(Guest presenter: Richard Groves. Held on Zoom due to the omicron surge.) Celtic Christianity is unique. For the Ancient Celts, the ‘scripture of nature’ held as much authority as written Scriptures. God is not a distant concept but an intimate presence manifest in the whole of creation and deeply embedded in our own humanity.
At our January Contemplative Mini-Retreat, we will explore the renaissance of Celtic Spirituality, which speaks to the urgent needs of our planet and our divided religious and social cultures.
