Experience a divine way to wander
In the Celtic tradition of Christianity pilgrims didn’t have a definite destination. They only knew and trusted the trinitarian God who called them as they headed out. This could be a description of the past year which has felt like a time of wandering for many people. We long for some anchor in this uncertainty.
This summer InterVarsity Faculty Ministries is offering an opportunity to find that anchor during Via Divina: The Celtic Way for Faculty. Take time each week from June 24 to July 23, 2021 to engage with the Triune God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—in new ways as we explore the roots and branches of the biblical Christianity practiced by early Celtic followers of Jesus.
All faculty are welcome to join in this digital experience, along with spouses, students, staff, and administrators—really anyone who cares about the world of the academy and longs for a way to practice the presence of God in its midst.

Each audio-guided excursion explores a theme of Celtic spirituality using the story of a Celtic saint, scripture reflection, sensory activities, and prayer.
Before every walk, you'll enter into a session's theme by contemplating a piece of original artwork created by InterVarsity staff Bette Dickinson.
To process your experience, you're encouraged to debrief with others in small groups at a pace that matches the timing of your overall pilgrimage.
There will also be opportunities to participate in webinars, spiritual direction, and other creative activities to help you recognize and reflect upon the sacred in the everyday.
You're invited to...
Encounter GOD'S LOVING PRESENCE through creation, especially in the unchosen-ness of our present circumstances.
Lean on the PROTECTIVE POWER OF GOD (against evil, injustice, empire) for us personally, our communities, and our world.
Experience the paradox of SPIRITUAL ROOTEDNESS that gives purpose to our wandering.
Lean into the healing and repentance necessary to reveal our GOD-GIVEN IDENTITY.
Boldly step into the UNKNOWN JOURNEY with the God who knows all, and do so with hope that our journey is good, beautiful, and purposeful.
Participate in community such that ALL THINGS ARE RESTORED, made right, and woven together in the resurrection of Jesus.
Extend ourselves for the sake of LIFE IN COMMUNITY.
Learn and then TAKE WHAT WE LEARN INTO THE WORK WHERE WE ARE CALLED.
