Worship and Teaching

The early church of Britain and Ireland would be puzzled with our modern- day quest to become ‘eco-friendly’ in our worship.

In their minds, considering creation was not a separate issue. To talk of ‘the environment’ as an isolated concept would have been strange.

Everything was connected in Christ.

Creation itself had a ‘blessedness’ about it.

 

A Celtic Prayer

Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you

Deep peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the gentle night to you
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you

Deep peace of Christ, The light of the world to you
Deep peace of Christ to you
Deep peace of Christ, The light of the world to you


We will be reporting soon on our progress towards embedding our concern for God’s creation within our worship and teaching.
