Throughout history there have been groups of Christians who have discovered the beauty of a life lived on God’s terms. The Celtic Christians of the early middle ages was one such group.
They understood from Scripture and from their own life experience that God was not someone we bend to our wants and desires, but rather someone who was beyond our control. Something we would need to pursue rather than subdue. In this Celtic Communion service we will explore why the Celtic tradition chose to represent the Holy Spirit as a bird, not the peaceful and serene dove landing on Jesus at his baptism. For their symbol of the Holy Spirit, the Celtic church people chose the Wild Goose (An Geadh-Glas).
