A cool bonus about attending St. Stephen’s University is that they have a professor who loves Celtic Christianity. Sadly enough he was on a trip during the two weeks I attended class so I was unable to meet him. However I did take advance of the school’s library which had excellent collection of Celtic Christianity … Continue reading Celtic Christianity and the Legend of the Wild Goose

Ah… the good, old Celtic church. Sigh. What a group of radicals. As some of you know, I have a "thing" for the church in the British Isles from 300 A.D. to about 700 A.D.

These are the people with huge hearts who strive … Continue reading Who cares for the people who care for the people?
I read it twice. Within three months. This, I might add, is a VERY rare thing for me as I typically only read a book once. And those books which I do re-read, I usually re-read them after a few years. So to say that I read Brad Jersak’s book “A More Christlike God: A … Continue reading A More Christlike God: Thoughts on Brad Jersak’s book
