Glencolumbkille to Dublin

Today we travel back across Ireland from County Donegal to Dublin. On the way, we will stop at the Knowth passage tomb in the Boyne Valley.

We so grateful for the beauty and openness and hospitality of Donegal. We have two more nights before we start the journey home. 

Bless to Me Worship Series

I’m so excited! My book was the inspiration for a 7-week worship series available from my friend, Marcia McFee and the Worship Design Studio.

If you are a pastor or worship leader, I hope you’ll consider the “Bless to Me” series for your church or faith community. The series is offered as a part of a “worship design starter kit” from Worship Design Studio. Or if you are already a subscriber to Worship Design Studio, the series is included as a part of your subscription.

“Take a virtual pilgrimage to Ireland this summer with new Worship Design Studio series ‘Bless to Me,’ a joyful exploration of what it means to see blessings in the world around us every day inspired by Beth A. Richardson’s Celtic Blessing poems.” From the “Bless to Me” landing page.

Thanks, Marcia. I’m grateful!
