The Society of St. Columba invites you to join with them and Larry & Deborah Littlebird on their Reawakening our Origins pilgrimage across England and Wales during October 2017. Join us in Brighton, Chichester, Langley, Leeds, London and Llanelli.
In the final blog of the Reawakening our Origins series, Greg Valerio explores the relevance of St. Columba’s rhythm of prayer, work and reading for the Christian life. Given the chaos and corruptions of the world, the journey towards our true home in Christ requires us to start all over again.
In the second of three blogs entitled Reawakening our Origins, Greg Valerio examines the characteristics of the British & Irish Monastic Church. Characteristics that focus on Discipleship, Imitation of Christ and geographical location of our spiritual practice.
The first of this three series blog entitled Reawakening our Origins, Greg Valerio begins to explore why a fresh look at monastic ecclesiology is needed in the new modern landscape of western orthodoxy. Social breakdown, climate crisis and the neo-liberal economic settlement has led to a hollowing out of spiritual integrity. The Celtic Christian way has much to say by way of filling this existential void.
