Celtic models of ministry

A few years ago I stumbled across something called the Celtic approach to Christianity. As I investigated further, it was apparent that I was at a fork in the road in how I approached my ministry. I realised that I was often focused on ecclesiastical organisational minutiae when my heart was really set on the nitty gritty of divine-human engagement. The stories from Celtic times (whether mythic or real) fired my imagination and helped me embrace my task in a more feisty, imaginative and bold manner. Yes, the organisational details still require attention, but the end is clearer and more distinctive. I was reminded of all this when my copy of A Celtic Model of Ministry by Jerry C Doherty (Liturgical Press, 2003) arrived today. A glance through its pages looks like something now familiar and something new. I look forward to reading it.

Okay Boomer - that I am. But not one of them know-it-all ones! Still learning that the more I know, the more I have yet to learn. What I do know, however, I know well.
