Thin places

Thin Place

The Celtic saints often referred to somewhere as a 'thin place'. This referred to when the Spiritual atmosphere of a location made it easy to connect with God, almost as though there is no barrier between heaven and earth. We might refer to such a place as a Spiritual portal, or an ancient well.  These places still exist and people hungry to encounter the living God will actively seek them out. We might call it a pilgrimage and some places are obvious like Iona in Scotland or Lindisfarne (Holy Island) in Northumberland. However, there are many ancient portals which are hidden and waiting to be discovered. Places where the air is still 'thin' and God can be easily found. These places are often where Christians in previous centuries worshipped and prayed, creating a portal like at Bethel, where angels ascend and descend between heaven and earth.
