Sunday’s May 5th worship service provides UPC worshipers with the language and experience of the weekly Sunday Service of Holy Communion at Iona Abbey, a place visited by thousands from around the world. The Iona Community has developed worship material drawing from both ancient patterns and modern world settings. The sermon title comes from a book by the same title, “Christ of the Celts” by J. Philip Newell, as I share with you my appreciation for and understanding of this early Celtic Christian story.
Next Sunday May 12th we will welcome back Thomas Herwig to the pulpit as our guest preacher!
