Building on the foundations set down in its first volume, this new collection blends the voices of the early Celtic and desert saints with more contemporary sources in ways that continue to speak to us in our own generation and culture.
Prayer is the heartbeat of the Northumbria Community, and Celtic Daily Prayer Book Two: Farther Up and Farther In contains the Daily Office (morning, midday and evening prayer, and compline), which can be said, or sung to the music provided.
As well as the Daily Office, there are four original Communion services, along with liturgies and prayers that have emerged out of real-life experiences of seeking God in many differing contexts throughout the world. Topics include reaching adulthood/mid-life/old-age; renewal of a marriage; the summer solstice; living with pain; blessing a garden; Christmas preparation; after an argument; scattering ashes; studying; peace; the ‘father wound’; loyalty and sleep, among many, many others.
A two-year collection of daily readings and prayers, with Celtic themes and inspiration. There is also a meditation for each day of the month.

ABOUT THE NORTHUMBRIA COMMUNITY
The Northumbria Community is a dispersed network of people from different backgrounds, streams and edges of the Christian faith, united in their desire to embrace and express an ongoing exploration into a new way for living. In this respect the Community follows the rich tradition of monastic communities through the centuries.
