Capturing Your Children’s Imagination Through Celtic Prayer

April 2, 9:30-12:00 at Messiah Episcopal Church

The early Celtic Christians recited Psalms, immersed themselves in Scriptures, and wrote their own liturgical prayers. As a family, you can pray with them simply one or two times a day. For the rest of the day, form a spiritual rhythm in your life by creating your own prayers to say with your children. Imitate the farmers and fishermen in rural Scotland who spoke or sang as they set their hands to daily tasks. Through Celtic prayers, you can cultivate the imagination of your children to see the sacred in their surroundings and foster a relationship with the Trinity.
