A Celtic Advent Liturgy

slide1

This is the last day of the Advent, the time of the year when, symbolically, liturgically and mystically, we await for the coming of the Lord.

I offer you today a little gift, from the richness of the Celtic spiritual tradition. (Upon request, I could send to those interested a power point version of this presentation.)

This Advent liturgy was inspired by a wonderful worship resource called Cloth for the Cradle, authored by John Bell and produced by Wild Goose Publications (for some reason, this link  is difficult to access at this time, but their resources are also available through Amazon.com), Wild Goose is the publishing arm of the Iona Community. I encourage you to explore this and other such resources produced by this most amazing worship leader I have ever met.

I mean John Bell, that you can see here in a typical pose, as he leads people in singing. I bet he can make any group sing almost any song, as complicated as it may be in less than five minutes.

It is worth visiting the mirific island of Iona, just to participate in a liturgy whene woprship is let by John Bell.

And, now, here is our little Celtic Advent liturgy. Enjoy and use freely.
