Celtic Christian Prayer – Loving it!

I’m currently reading through (and LOVING) Stephen Lawhead’s Pendragon Cycle. Currently I’m half way through Arthur, the third book in the series.

They also have a few of the Celtic Christian...

A Perfect Daily Jumpstart!

Walking in a "maze" ment

On Wednesday I shared the experience I have with walking with a Rosary. Another cool meditation tool for walking is walking a labyrinth. I heard about labyrinth’s a few years back when I got very involved with studying Catholic Mysticism. After that I looked for opportunities to walk one, and while there aren’t many around here, there are a couple...
