Speaking Tour Of Norway - Selje Awakes

My sister Sally and I will be in Norway until July 11 and will post no further blogs.

The tour host is Mecky Wohlenburg

 We spend two nights at Lia gard retreat centre, during a families and creativity retreat, and I speak at Sandon Retreat Centre on Celtic Christianity, Iona and Lindisfarne.

On July 1 we arrive at Selje, where Saint Sunniva and her praying companions became white martyrs which spread the Faith before King Olaf imposed it the following century. Selje is being called the womb of Norway's church. Catholics and Reformed churches have created a pilgrimage centre, and hold celebrations this week-end. I am to give talks on pilgrimage and the Selje-Celtic links

We stay in Mecky and Kristin's cottage (he was once a priest at Selje).

Saturday 2 July: At Leikanger church . The Celtic conferance will take place at Stad hotel with high and low Lutherans and Pentecostals..There will be a concert and talks will include the theme 'Restoring Christianity's Woven Cord'.
