Thoughts, prayers and readings for every day of the year, both morning and evening, with Celtic themes and inspiration, from the Northumbria Community. 'Life is a pilgrimage; and the contents of this prayer book may justly be taken as songs to sing and stories to tell along the road.' This book combines our earlier Celtic Daily Prayer and Celtic Night Prayer books, and adds to them fresh material borne out of the further development of the Northumbria Community's ways of worship in the intervening years since these books were published. The main part of the book consists of thoughts, prayers and readings for the morning and the evening of every day of the year, as well as liturgies for both normal and special occasions. There is also clear guidance on how and when to use the material in imaginative ways, and on the benefits of utilising the imagery and themes of Celtic Christianity. Other features includes complines for every day of the week, meditations for every day of the month, a calendar and resources for saints' days and festivals, as well as Holy Communion and Family Shabbat.
The liturgies, prayers, and meditations in this book draw from a deep well of spiritual experience, transcending fashion, culture, and denomination. A must-have for anyone wanting to embark on a spiritual voyage of exploration.
The Northumbria Community is well-respected across the Christian Church for its solid base and adventurous exploration of Celtic themes in personal prayer and corporate worship.
