Episode 29 “A Celtic Christmas”

Today we’re looking at Advent through the eyes of Celtic Christianity. Although the Celts no longer have a territory of their own, their influence continues in many areas including music and religion.  Dr. Epperly gives us a short history of how Celts arrived in the British Isles and were converted by early Christian missionaries. He also relates how the Celts influenced the missionaries. They introduced a vigorous earthiness into the faith, one that concentrated on an incarnation of God in all things, making all things holy and discovering “thin places” where God’s presence is palpable.  ~19 min.
