Tell others about Jesus:
Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians. Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ____________

The places where the Celtic Saints worked and prayed...can still be visited.
Most biographies of the Celtic saints were written centuries after they lived, and are filled with legends, but the places where they worked and prayed, generally in the more remote parts of the country, can still be visited.
Chapels and Huts
The remains of their chapels and huts are often set in beautiful landscapes: sheltered valleys, peaceful lakeshores, sea caves, headlands and islands.
Inscribed Stones and Early Texts
Archaeology, the study of place-names, inscribed stones and early texts can tell us about how these men and women lived and the unique ideals they held.

Using archaeological and literary evidence, Elizabeth Rees has produced the first ever guidebook to 250 Sites in the British Isles where Celtic saints lived and worked.
