Celtic Christianity: A Spirituality for Today • August 25 & September 1 • Upper Room
Taught by Dr. Robert Norris
In this special two-week study, Dr. Norris will lead us in an examination of Celtic Christianity. We'll look at the lives of Saints Patrick, David, and Columba, and through these heroes of the faith we'll get a sense of the fervency of the gospel movement as it was spread and practiced in Ireland, Wales, and Scotland. We will then trace the spiritual influences of those founding centuries through the ensuing centuries' revivals and seasons of gospel renewal, even to today.
