Prophecy
At the start of Plain Church Celtic Community PCCC as a charity
16.09.20
Few sentences at start not recorded but were about the Lord’s pleasure with PCCC.
I’m so thrilled, so filled up with your enthusiasm and your love for me, and your compassion and your care, and your willingness to go the extra mile and do the extra things. And I’m so thrilled that Plain Church is an entity, that it has been fully born this morning, today, and now WATCH, watch , watch, says the Lord at what I am going to do.
The gloves are off, we’re on the move.
Just stay close to me, lean on me fully, with all your hearts and all your minds and I will give you all the understanding that you need.
Don’t be afraid, it’s not always going to be easy, but, I am always there with you
Be prepared to be more different, more extraordinary, more amazed, more amazing – times are changing – just stay close.
Remember to pray in the Spirit, you have all been given the gift of tongues, you have had so many prompts recently, you must use this gift more and more and more. It’s like a direct line to me with nothing in the way. As you use more tongues I will give you more understanding and more interpretation, and you think you have big dreams, they are nothing compared to what I have planned for you.
Keep the fires burning, keep the fires burning in your hearts, and in the hearts of those around you.
Walk with those who walk with me.
Listen.      Listen for the still small voice, I will speak in the silence.

Celtic Knots

Well a knot is a fairly easy thing to understand, sometimes welcome, sometimes describing a tangle we would rather not have, but we all know what a knot is.

However, a Celtic Knot is a bit more than that, just as this Sunday is more than Low Sunday

The Celts are/were a race of people. Obviously pagan before Christ and fierce fighters. Their women were taken seriously in leadership of all kinds and this went on into the Celtic Christianity years.

The branch of Christianity called Celtic came to these people, to Ireland through traders and, as with all people, they adapted its message to their ways.

The races that had Druids, nature based deities and accepted there was one unknown God “who put fire in the bellies” understood that God was Creator. They understood that life was encircling as they already had circles in their lives and in their jewellery. The concept of eternity was simply another circle and so easy to grasp. The seasons and the rhythm of day and night, the tides that ebb and flow, stories of storms on the lakes, these were things they understood and found God within.

Their simple lives moved easily into lives as missionaries, such as Columba, and their Holy Celibates lived in Nunneries containing male and female under the leadership of a female.

Their lives of trade led to journeys and the Celts remained a travelling race of fierce folk, hardy and loyal and comparatively simple. They never adopted Rome or its ways, defeating Rome eventually and driving it from the shores of the British Isles. Only for the Church of Rome later to return and take over the church.

The Celts heard the Good News and practised it, bringing it across to Iona and round Scotland to Lindisfarne. The simple lives of the nuns and monks, the values of service and journeying, acapella singing outside in creation which combined the chanting of psalms with their natural love of folk songs, from bards and the seeing of God in all things created continued until the council of Whitby when the then English King decided to follow the Roman way and that is when the practice of religion was changed forever.

Now more people are reconnecting with the simple ways of the celts, and pilgrims to the sites of Celtic Christianity grow in number.

Plain Church is not so strange after all!
