Wednesday Celtic Eucharist
We meet in "The Porch" (indoors) in a circle around a small table we use for an altar.  We are informal, and the liturgy is simple and short but very direct.   Come to be with friends, to let your heart and mind slow down so that you can see into your own soul, the deep peace of the running wave flowing in your veins, and the love of God in your warm hands.                                                                                                       Everett+
