Gilbert to share ‘reflection’ at Celtic service on Sunday

Grace Episcopal Church, 303 South Main Street, Kilmarnock, will hold a Celtic Service on Sunday, April 14. A musical prelude will begin at 5:20 p.m. followed by the service at 5:30 p.m.

Worship in the Celtic style offers opportunities to become more open and aware of God’s presence, said Laura Rowe. “Celtic” refers to a tradition that originated in the British Isles. The mystical nature of that tradition is captured in music, spiritual reflection, silence and grace filled communion.

The gentle, peaceful music features the delicate beauty of flute, piano, cello, dulcimer and harp playing songs of the Celtic tradition, said Rowe. The music and candle-lit worship space help to calm and center the participants, she said.

“The quieted mind allows deep listening both inside and outside of ourselves,” said Rowe.

The reflection this month will be given by Martha Gilbert, a member of Grace Church. Gilbert lives in Burgess with her husband, Art, and their dog, Steve. A life-long Episcopalian, she will speak about encountering God in a hospital waiting room, said Row.
