All of us who believe tend to use prayer in hard times. In this time we live in, fear is everywhere. Fear of Covid, fear of Covid Vaccinees. Fear of war and even fear of peace. We live in a time of individual uncertainty that the United States hasn’t seen since before World War II. People deal with fear in a myriad of ways and many of them are quite helpful and beautiful. It is here we can learn a… Read more

According to John Koch and his 2006 book “Celtic Culture: A Historical Encyclopedia.” Celtic Christianity refers broadly to certain features of Christianity that were common, or held to be common, across the Celtic-speaking world during the Early Middle Ages.” (Koch) Celtic Christianity has been viewed on many levels by many different writers. On one level, writers have sought to describe a distinct Celtic Church. It had the purpose of uniting the Celtic peoples. In early writings, it sought to distinguish… Read more

With the new law taking effect in Texas in regards to abortion, the words “Pro-life” are once again being thrown around. So too are “Pro-Choice” and a myriad of other phrases in between the two. When this argument rears its head around America’s dinner tables and Facebook accounts, you can be sure there will be much visceral and anger to be had by all. But one thing that has always concerned me is the grouping together of certain words that… Read more

Even though early Celtic church fathers like Pelagius railed against original sin, the reality of sin was a fact to the early Celtic Christians. The idea that humans will error is not a new concept nor was it novel to the Celts. The biblical understanding of sin can be best understood looking at the context in which the words used to describe sin are used in the bible. The use of over 20 different words between the Old Testament and… Read more

In my daily studies, I ran across the Jude of the Old Testament- Obidiah. Obidiah is the shortest book in the Old Testament. But like its New Testament predecessor- It is jammed full of theological treasure. But to understand that treasure one must look at the context of the writing. It is there we find an instance where God selects a prophet from the opposition to speak out against the opposition. Historical Context Obidiah is one of only three prophets… Read more

As we continue to journey through the 12 Apostles of Ireland, we find here in these three bravery. We find bravery in the face of the unknown, bravery in the face of danger and bravery in the face of oppression. As Christians we must have the courage to stand with our Ard Ri (High King) Jesus Christ in the face of all of these. These three saints from long ago, speak to us about this bravery for the love of… Read more

The way in which God is called, says much about how the people see God and the characteristics that define God. When God gives a name, God is providing additional revelation of Gods character. We can also learn a great deal when no particular name is used. This also shows us attributes about God found in the names God is called. It is within the names of God we reveal the relationship humankind has with the divine. Pronouns to describe… Read more

Celtic Christian thought seeks to mend a fracture in general revelation. Western Christianity has caused this fracture in its war on science. Western Christianity has privatized religion and used science to violate the earth (Simpson, 1994). Secular humanism and Greek philosophy, which advocates for this compartmentalization has caused a drifting away from general revelation. And has shrunk its importance to the life and theology of the Christian. This drifting has led to many Reformed and Pentecostal movements to misinterpret general… Read more

The Journey Continues As we continue to discuss the modern applications of Irelands ancient Christian founders, it is important to point out some simple observations about these persons. First, these 12, similar to the Apostles of Jesus came from all walks of life. This was a diverse group from different regions of Ireland and different socio-economic backgrounds. This is something dearly needed in the modern church. We need voices from all walks, experiences and cultures. As God made all of… Read more

As I continue reading and re-reading Sarah J. Robinson’s amazing book “I Love Jesus, But I Want To Die” The more I realize how ignored Mental Health is in the church. As me and My cohost of Bishop Brothers, Aaron Williams discussed the book on our weekly Facebook and YouTube show, it hit me. The Church views Mental Health as a PR problem. The Church doesn’t deal with mental health, because it does not want to admit it needs help…. Read more
