Create your own Celtic orders of service for a Eucharist, Morning, Midday and Evening Prayer, Compline and other worship occasions - formal or informal. This book contains ancient and contemporary texts for every element of each service from call to worship to final blessing - the fullest range available for mixing and matching.
The book is fully compatible with the "Common Worship" and other modern lectionaries. Clergy, worship leaders and individual users should be delighted to have a liturgical resource offering ancient and contemporary Celtic texts arranged to meet today's worship needs.
"A Celtic Primer" draws on early Welsh and Irish texts as well as the work of modern writers to create a daily prayer companion from which any act of worship can be created. Scripture and spiritual readings are included and seasonal variations add to its versatility. The celebration of the work of God in creation and redemption is interwoven throughout, resonating deeply with people's search for a sense of transcendence in their everyday lives.
"For those not familiar with Celtic spirituality, this book provides a wealth of material worth exploring. For those more deeply immersed in Celtic worship it provides a resource to which the reader can continually refer back with refreshing satisfaction.(...)The Celtic Sentences, collects and Intercessions, are a beautiful source of devotional inspiration. the book is, howere, more than this. It is a resource that extends well beyond its pages through the suggested Bible readings; prayer readins from the Old Testament and Apocrypha and New Testament; detailed Psalter themes; and daily Bible meditation texts for every day of the year. It is also accompanied by a free disk, in Word format, designed to assist all who plan or lead worship to create liturgies that are rooted in scripture." Rural Theology.
