The Celtic approach to life and worship is one which many are beginning to value anew. For the Celts the earthly and spiritual worlds were one and their worship expressed the joy of the natural world. In its down-to-earth approach, Celtic spirituality speaks a language that children today can identify with. This beautiful and hopeful book contains a selection of Celtic style prayers, old and new, giving thanks for the world and asking for God’s protection and blessing. In the words of the prayers children can begin to express their own spirituality in a way that makes sense to them.
