Here is the CHAT Starter for September 28 at 10am:

Encountering MYSTERY – AWE!


JOHN PHILIP NEWELL is a gifted teacher and writer whose passion for Celtic Christianity opens readers to new ways of exploring ancient WISDOM.  Drawing on a rich tradition, Newell provides vital insights into the pressing problems of 21st century Christianity. By embracing the wisdom of Celtic Christianity, we can learn how to listen to the sacred in nature and within one another, which our culture – at the times even our faiths – have made us forget what each of us already know deep in our souls but have learned to suppress. Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul offers a new spiritual foundation for our lives.


“Newell offered me a new creation story for Christian faith. I commend his book to anyone who is ready to be born again.” BARBARA BROWN TAYLOR

“Newell invites us into the counterintuitive truth that much of the wisdom we need to navigate this moment has already been spoken in the past. I’m convinced that we’ve only begun to see just how far and wide his voice is going to be heard.” ROB BELL

“Newell reaches new depths in his vision of the earth and the human journey. We need this Celtic wisdom urgently.” RICHARD ROHR
