Celtic Glory


Spiritual Encounters: Ancient Wells Re-opening.

The places in Celtic Glory are all sites where ancient Celtic Christians, (sometimes referred to as the Celtic saints), lived and carried out their Christian lives in the 5th-7th centuries AD. Many of them moved in the supernatural, exhibiting power over the natural realm and over the spiritual. Miracles of healing were experienced, as well as confrontations with evil supernatural forces which were overcome. They lived lives of adventure, service, and faith in extraordinary circumstances, often seeing similar miracles to those written about in the Bible. The names of some people remain, most don’t, but their prayers and faith continue to have an impact even today. At these sites, or ancient wells, it is often possible for individuals who are seeking, to encounter God for themselves in extraordinary ways. Angels have been seen guarding the deposits in the Spirit realm.

Some ancient wells are known and still places of pilgrimage such as Holy Island (Lindisfarne) in Northumberland or Iona in Scotland. Others are virtually forgotten until you dig a bit deeper. There is a Spiritual legacy at these places which God is drawing many to rediscover, not in the sense of going backwards or dwelling in history but more in a rediscovering and marrying together with faith today. There are Spiritual things which we can learn from these saints as well as Spiritual deposits which we can also experience. Often in these secluded places, away from the busy modern lives we live, there is an opportunity to breathe and to stop long enough to encounter the extraordinary, the exciting, the unusual supernatural realms of God. This is something that God is restoring as ancient wells in the Spirit begin to reopen once more.
