This single-verse song, drawn from the Northumbria Community’s Celtic Daily Prayer, may serve effectively as a Call to Worship.
The Northumbria Community adopted that name in 1994, but its roots go back to the 1970s and 80s. The Community comprises a network “of hugely diverse people, from different backgrounds, streams and edges of the Christian faith.”
Inspired by, drawing from, and living in the spiritual tradition of monasticism, the Community is geographically dispersed and strongly ecumenical but with an identity rooted in the history and spiritual heritage of Celtic Northumbria.
