Wild Goose” is the name given to the Holy Spirit by the ancient Celts
because He is so unpredictable and impossible to tame.
If you allow him, the Holy Spirit will lead you on an adventure
greater than you can imagine.
He will lead you to a place of mercy, healing, peace, and presence.
The Holy Spirit has been given to us not as a possession
to be tamed or controlled,
but rather as a Person that will lead us to the Heart of God.
These videos will help you experience a deeper relationship
with the Person of the Holy Spirit,
and as you come to experience God’s presence and power
this very same Spirit will transform you and bring you freedom.



Lectio Divina has been used by the church for centuries as a tool for deepening prayer life.  Meaning 'Spiritual Reading' it is a way of reading the bible, making your reading a prayer.  It helps you to see how the Holy Spirit , speaking to you through the bible, has something to say about your life.
