What about the Celts?

What? Celts? Oh yea, Aidan and friends.
I suppose that began to form about 2 years ago. Maybe three. In the summer of '01 we spent a month in the UK to see all the folks we'd either met or heard about with regard to experiential worship. And we spent 2 weeks of that time doing summer work at Oxford. I took a two hour class from Esther DeWaal, the Pete Sampras of things Celtic. I was inspired and moved by her presentation, but I didn't know then that she was a Celtic God! It was after that by about 3 to 6 months that Lilly and I were reading one of her books(they are legion)when we made the connection between Esther, our time in Oxford and the books we loved. Doh!
Since then we've found such a resonance with most things Celtic that we paid a visit to Aidan's island, Lindisfarne, over the last few weeks with our kids. It was awesome to say the least. I'll get some links tomorrow so you can look for yourself.
Till then,
