Christ our life,
You are alive in the beauty of the earth
in the rhythm of the seasons
in the mystery of time and space.
ALLELUIA

Christ our life,
You are alive in the tenderness of touch
in the heartbeat of intimacy
in the insights of solitude.
ALLELUIA

Christ our life,
You are alive in the creative possibility
of the dullest conversation
the dreariest task
the most nerve-racking event.
ALLELUIA

Christ our life,
You are alive to offer new creation
to every unhealed hurt
to every deadened place
to every damaged heart.
ALLELUIA

You set before us a great choice.
Therefore we choose life.
ALLELUIA

The Kentigern Way transspaser

The Kentigern Way

A life and Lakeland pilgrimage

(Book & e-book)

Stephen G Wright

The Kentigern Way is a guide to a pilgrimage route in one of the most majestic landscapes in the UK, that of the Lake District, which is rich in beauty, nature and history.

Historians will enjoy the honest assessment of Kentigern’s life and some revealing asides about the reality of Celtic culture. Walkers will find an enthralling travel guide and a beautiful, manageable route. Contemplatives will be encouraged by the emphasis on listening and stillness. And I challenge anyone not to be inspired and intrigued by the thoughtfulness and love that have gone into researching and producing this unusual and compelling work.
James Newcome, Bishop of Carlisle
