And I especially love the writings of my good friend from Nottingham, England, Liz Babbs.
Her latest book, Celtic Treasure, is small and gorgeous, a perfect gift for the rapidly approaching Christmas season. It contains stories and wisdom of the ancient Celts, and to these, she adds lovely original prayers and poems and beautiful photos.
She discusses Celtic traditions of creation, creativity, community, hospitality, and just celebrating life.
We meet some Celtic saints, too, and enjoy their writings, such as these familiar lines from
St. Patrick's Breastplate
And from Liz's own poetry:
Spirit of God around me
In the air that I breathe
Glory of God around me
Inspiring all I see...
These are just a tidbit from the richness here.
I had the pleasure of going to the TV studios with Liz for this interview where she gives a wonderful teaching on Christian meditation. Don't miss it.
