(Valparaiso, Indiana) - The public is invited to a free series of discussions in Valparaiso on the origins of Celtic spirituality and present-day human impact on the environment hosted by a research professor with a Chicago seminary.

A six-part "contemplative reading and discussion" of Philip Newell's book "Christ of the Celts" will be hosted by Rev. Dr. George Cairns of Chesterton at 7 p.m. on Thursdays from late February through early April at the Union Community Church (United Church of Christ) at 602 Monroe St. in Valparaiso.

The dates are Feb. 26, March 5, 12, 19, 26; and April 2.

"If you are seeking a non-judgmental and relational Christianity, which honors all of God's Creation, this discussion is for you," said Cairns, a research professor with the Chicago Theological Seminary.

A co-founder of the non-profit Turtle Island Project, Cairns is well-versed in Celtic Spirituality and believes the mankind faces a "kairos moment" in the respect humans shows for nature and the environment.

Turtle Island Project goals include promoting the ideas of earth-based cultures such as American Indians and the Scotland-based Celts who traveled Europe.

"We will be reading this book aloud, so there is no requirement that you purchase a copy, although we do encourage it," Cairns said. "Each session covers a different topic and you can benefit from attending some, if not all sessions."

Everyone is welcome and there is no charge to attend. For more information call the church office at 219-464-3197 or Cairns at 219-395-9347.
