July’s Featured Author: Rodney Newman
With our 25th Annual Celtic Prayer Retreat, “Celebrating the Goodness of God with All the Saints”, fast approaching, it’s fitting that we feature Rodney in our month-long focus, “Listening to the Celtic Saints” over on our Godspace Community Blog.
Featured Author Rodney Newman is a United Methodist pastor and higher education chaplain. He teaches undergraduate courses in Celtic Christianity and leads study abroad trips to Ireland.
In 2015, Abingdon Press published Rodney’s book, Journeys with Celtic Christians, along with a leader’s guide for use with small groups.
Rodney and his wife, Ann, live in Oklahoma City. They along with their son, a university student, and daughter in high school, are active in working for social justice and building interfaith relationships.
Celtic Prayer Retreat Early Bird Special Ends July 15th!
This is our 25th year joining with you at our annual Celtic Prayer Retreat. We’re excited to welcome back musician Jeff Johnson, who will lead our worship on Saturday.
To help celebrate, we’ve added a Friday evening program, Introduction to Celtic Spirituality with Pat Loughery, followed by a music jam, as well as three Saturday afternoon workshop options. We also are updating our prayer trails and will have a full morning of worship before departing on Sunday.
