Welcome to the forum. I haven't read her books, but they sound interesting.

We have a sub-forum dedicated to discussing aspects of the Christian-Druid path. It's located under the Druid Living section. I think all you have to do is send a PM to the Mod of that forum to gain access to it. :)

I recently came across a book called "Lost Christianites" by: Bart Ehrman... I think I might give that a read sometime too.

I've sent the message ... I'm waiting to gain the access. I'm italian and really interested in this christian path, since catholicism is the cultural base of my country.

Bright blessings,

I am new to the forum. If possible, I would truly appreciate access to the Christian-Druid section. I am new to the Druid path and am here to learn as much as I can. :oops:

Thank you.

Blessed be,

Just thought that I might post this, its about a documentary from a while back all about the mountain Cader Idris. One episode featured the mountains connection with spirituality and featured local progressive vicar Rev Geraint ap Iorwerth whose church is at Pennal near Machynlleth, Mid Wales. When I say church, it's also a multifaith ashram with a Goddess temple dedicated to Hagia Sofia in the grounds, a Buddhist shrine, a new standing stone circle, a large celtic cross and a sword in the stone outside the vicarage. Also at the side of the church is an area dedicated to the Welsh kings especially Owain Glyndwr who held parliament at the ancient capital, Machynlleth. It was opened by rock legend Robert Plant who has property and land nearby and has done his fair bit to preserve the environment of the Dyfi estuary.
Geraint has also written a book 'Honest to Goddess' about his connection to Her and his spiritual experiences and visions as a Gnostic preacher. It's a good little read.

It's something that I thought may be of interest to the Christian druid.

Why wouldn't it be of interest to the Christian druid?

Hi, I'd like to have access to the Christian forum. I had an Evangelical upbringing and it would be great to discuss some related issues.

As I have read that many feel closer to God in nature I was reminded of a scripture in Romans. This scripture teaches that "nature itself" will teach us about God. Why wouldn't one feel closer to God because of nature. The bible teaches us that nature virtually screams the truth of God.

Well said :D

Nature is God's creation. It follows that His intent will have itself reflected in nature, if only partially.

Hiya. :) I just applied through the control panel. I'm new to the forums. I already wrote out my story in the hearthfire so I'm not gonna repeat it here but, I was born and raised Catholic. I still miss a few bits of it, but there's so much of it that I don't agree with. I'm fascinated with Druidry, and I'm curious to see if I can pick out the bits of Catholicism that I miss and carry them over.

I can thoroughly recommend a book with much of interest to the Druid following the path of Christ. "The Dove in the Stone" finding the sacred in the common place, by Alice.O.Howell. It is centered mainly on the Scottish island of Iona and tells a lot about the Holy Sophia, the feminine aspect of wisdom. It is a truly magical and beautiful book and although I only finished it a week ago I have started it again, I just get totally absorbed in it. It has also moved me to book a weeks holiday on Iona myself to follow the authors footsteps, and also those of St.Columba.

Blessings

Hello all... ju st my pennies worth...
A few Scriptures you might like

Ps96:11- 13 creation itself rejoices…….
Ps 19:1 the heavens declare the glory of God…..
Rom1:18 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made ------ however!!! This is about God's Wrath and not a good oneto quote while trying to demonstrate that the bible is pro druidry :wow: :shrug: Paul did have his hang ups you know! lol.

1 Chron 16:33 Let the trees of the forest sing, let them sing for joy before the LORD,

Psalm 148
1 Praise the LORD.[a]
Praise the LORD from the heavens;
praise him in the heights above.
2 Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
3 Praise him, sun and moon;
praise him, all you shining stars.
4 Praise him, you highest heavens
and you waters above the skies.

5 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for at his command they were created,
6 and he established them for ever and ever—
he issued a decree that will never pass away.

7 Praise the LORD from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding,
9 you mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for his name alone is exalted;
his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,
the praise of all his faithful servants,
of Israel, the people close to his heart.

Praise the LORD.

Isaiah 44:23
Sing for joy, you heavens, for the LORD has done this; shout aloud, you earth beneath. Burst into song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees,

Isaiah 55:12
You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands

See Creation is declared to be sentient! lol. :)
