About the Event
Thursday, January 21 | 7pm via Zoom
Fee: $20, or whatever you can afford
The Celts - both historically and in the present day Iona community "carry blessing" into the world. Ellen Kogstad will lead us in reflection on the transformative impact of this unique spirituality. Poems/prayers for the baking of bread, getting up
in the morning, going to bed at night – for the Celtic people all the activities of the day were blessed by God. The evening will include the presentation, and then together we will compose blessings to take and share with friends and enemies, family and strangers.
