What is it about Celtic Christianitys traditions that are so foundational for the 8th Day Community and spiritual formation?
The 8th Day Community is defined not only by compassion demonstrated within the city, but also by the growing calling to reflect the image of the God (the Imago Dei) in the rich and extraordinary history and traditions of the Church – both ancient and contemporary. We are drawn to Celtic Christianity’s ability to “weave” the historical characteristics of the life of a follower of Jesus into a broader perspective bringing a needed reflective life of community and wholeness. In short, allowing people to experience the love of God in the ordinariness of life and not be bound by unnecessary institutional or self-made expectations. This is a core value of the 8th Day Community and how we approach the life of reflective and in-depth discipleship in spiritual formation.
