Northumbrian Celtic Devotions
So – how is it going as we approach Easter together? Which are you finding is easier to keep and which is hardest? Mornings? Middays? Evenings?
As part of the church’s bi-centenary celebrations, the monthly Bible readings have been taking a different slant since last month. The church here at Liberton owes much to the Northumbrian Celtic tradition of Christianity and we are borrowing from that as we pilgrimage together through 2015 and onwards.
The Celtic brand of Christianity has emphasis on monastery and mission, obedience to the Spirit’s prompting and a real sense of maintaining a continual devotion in daily living.
For this reason we are encouraging each other to start, improve or continue a daily devotion with the Lord and His Word.
As well as a guide each month in the magazine (see the middle pages insert) to help us focus on the Bible passages, with relevant thoughts and prayers, there is the expanded daily devotion available on the church’s website and on Facebook to enable us to take time in the morning, at midday and in the evening to celebrate, listen, pray and respond.
And we all got a free bookmark/postcard to remind us!
(Is yours in use maybe somewhere as a reminder – or in your Bible?)
Have you considered using a small notebook to keep your thoughts and questions? Or maybe you are keeping a daily spiritual journal? Or do you have a Bible app on your mobile/tablet that could be useful?
Together let us journey together in worship to our faithful God.
Together let us feed on His Word, enriching the soul.
Together let us commit to the times of prayer, listening for His voice.
Together let us respond to the prompting of the Holy Spirt.
And may God truly be with us all in this step of faith!
