So many of the problems we have with our faith spring from a faulty – or too narrow – view of God. We are trapped in seeing him as an angry father or distant despot. But what if God were merry and happy and kind. What if the God who made the stars was also approachable and on our side?
The Celtic Christians’ picture of God is truly beautiful and I am making it my mission to help us to get in touch with this. This gorgeous prayer poem pictures Jesus having a good old singsong. Now I could love a God like that; how about you?
O thou Lightener of the stars, on the crests of the clouds we behold thee, the choristers of the sky singing thy name as thou dost descend with a merry noide from the Father above, harp of song…making music to thee.
