Celebrating the Light by Jonathan Robinson contains Eucharistic and Morning and Evening Prayer liturgies. It is available as a PDF download from the link given or individual copies can be purchased from Jonathan Robinson, The Rowan, Great Argoed, Mellington, Montgomery, Powys. SY15 6TH. Price: £3.50 plus £1 p. & p. per copy or as appropriate for larger orders. Jonathan Robinson is an Anglican priest. Celebrating the Light has been designed to connect with those who are not connected with traditional church. According to Robinson, "It is devotional, contemplative, Celtic, forward-looking and also traditional! It is the celebration of life and the relationships that make life, life in the light of the Spirit." I have used the liturgies as the basis for a number of services, both Eucharistic and non-Eucharistic, and the response has always been most positive.
