Celtic Spiritual Engagement Series

Hello Friends of St. Brigit,
We would like to invite you to our new 15 week Celtic Spiritual Engagement Series.

Introduction – “The Winged Man” Celtic Spiritual Engagement Series, starting November 2nd at 7:00 MST (US and Canada)
If you remember back to last year, St Brigit’s Episcopal Church in Frederick Colorado hosted a three-part spiritual engagement series entitled “Brigid’s Mantle – an Invitation of Peace and Hope to a Troubled World”. It featured the two well-known spiritual authors Kenneth McIntosh and Lilly Weichberger.  
In the spirit of Brigid’s Mantle, St Brigit’s is presenting a 15 week online contemplative series geared to our Post Pandemic World and based on the new testament book of Matthew. We will be using “The Winged Man”, edited by Kenneth McIntosh, to direct our conversations each week. In “The Winged Man” each chapter of Matthew is prefaced by a commentary about how the Celts first received the Good News of Their Salvation.
Kenneth gathered a well-known group of Bible and Celtic spirituality authors to contribute to the commentaries.
The bookhttps://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34740820-the-winged-man

1st Meeting Details 
This new Celtic Spiritual Engagement Series begins on November 2nd at 7:00 MST (US and Canada) and will last one hour. The series will continue on consecutive Tuesdays thru February 8th. The November 2nd meeting will feature Kenneth McIntosh who will provide insight and context into the hearts and minds of the pre-Christian Celts as they encountered the story of Jesus Christ as told by Mathew. Kenneth will cover the first 79 pages in the first meeting. We suggest reading the first 79 pages prior to the first meeting.  
Follow-up engagement meetings – The commentary and the bible readings. 
The follow-up engagements include Chapters One through Twenty-Eight. The chapters will be covered two at a time. For instance, Chapter One begins with commentary, and the bible reading follows. This sequence of commentary and bible reading follows all the way through to Chapter 28. The reading assignments for each week usually cover no more than ten pages.
