The Celtic Evening Worship is a candlelit service with beautiful Celtic music, prayer, reflection and Holy Communion. All are welcome at the table. Until we can meet in person again, we will continue offering virtual services, recording in the Chapel/Meeting House and airing via our YouTube channel, 5:00 p.m. on the forth Sunday September through May.

For your Spirit woven into the fabric of creation
for the eternal overlapping with time
and the life of earth interlaced with heaven’s vitality
We give you thanks, O God.
For your untamed creativity
your boundless mystery
and your passionate yearnings
planted deep in the soul of every human being
We give you thanks, O God.
Grant us the grace to reclaim these depths
to uncover this treasure
to liberate these longings
and in being set free in our own spirits
to act for the well-being of the world. Amen.

At the ending of the day
in the quiet of the hours
at the interplay of light and dark
we wait with the earth as it rests
that we may give thanks for darkness
that we may open to night’s senses
that we may remember the ground from which we come
and know You
as Presence in the mystery
as evening breeze in our soul
as Everlasting Strength in earth’s body.
At the ending of the day we wait
that we may know You
as Lover of the night
as Lover in the night.

A Celtic Blessing

Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining star to you
Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you.

A Celtic Blessing
Bless to us, O God, the earth beneath our feet.
Bless to us, O God, the path whereon we go.
Bless to us, O God, the people whom we meet.
Bless to us, O God, each thing our eyes see.
Bless to us, O God, each sound our ears hear.
Bless to us, O God, each ray that guides our way.
Amen.

Christ Beside Me
Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, love of my heart Christ within me, Christ below me, Christ above me never to part.
Christ on my right hand, Christ on my left hand, Christ all around me,
shield in the strife.
Christ in my sleeping, Christ in my sitting, Christ in my rising,
Light of my life.

Christ, as a light
Illumine and guide me.
Christ, as a shield
overshadow me.
Christ under me;
Christ over me;
Christ beside me
on my left and my right.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.
Be in the heart of each to whom I speak;
in the mouth of each who speaks unto me.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.
Christ as a light;
Christ as a shield;
Christ beside me
On my left and my right.
