Our lesson on St. Columba.  For those finding this update through Facebook, be sure to go to to access the audio.  God’s Peace!

This week’s lesson was on St. Brendan the Navigator.  For those seeing this through Facebook, you’ll need to go to directly to play the audio.  Enjoy and God’s Peace! 

Saints Brigid and Finnian of Clonard.  As the discussion was very good after the lesson, I’ve encluded that as well as a seperate audio file.  As with the previous, we have the Order of the Vesper Light, the lesson on the Celtic saints and then Compline.  Enjoy and God’s Peace.

As promised, here is the audio from our Celtic Christianity series that we are offering at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church here in Atlanta.  Classes are every Monday night in the chapel.  God willing and “real life” permitting, I’ll be able to get the lessons up on the blog by the next day.  Enjoy!

For this lesson, I mention Presiding Bishop Katherine’s pastoral letter for Pentecost.  For those who would like to read the letter, it can be found HERE

And now, for this week’s lesson.  Enjoy and God’s Peace!

For those that missed the class on the 31st that wrapped up our Faces of God series, here is the audio from the class.  This contains the opening prayer of the Vesper Light, the intro to God the Unexpected, and our closing with Compline.  Tonight we begin our series on Celtic Christianity.  We will be recording these lessons and hope to have them up the following day for those that are unable to attend in person.  God’ s Peace!

    I know I said we’d have an update on Br. Addison’s work, but as he’s swamped with end of term homework and finals, we’ll wait another week for him to resurface from school so he can tell us all about some of the new plants he’s tracked down. In the meantime, thanks to our own […]
  • Construction Junction: monks with power tools
    So back to the aquaponics… With a consistent scale, the new and accurate plans for the system look like this: As you can see, the unit fits into the corner with two grow beds running along either wall, and the water tanks creating the triangular shape underneath.  The tank is divided into two sections for […]
