The Ailbe Seminary
What is the Kingdom of God, and what is its status today? How is the Kingdom of God like an ecosystem, and where to do we fit into this new, heavenly environment?

Psalm of the Week
We are happy for you to use our weekly psalm for personal or corporate worship. All psalms for singing are from The Ailbe Psalter.
Psalm 15 (Arlington: This is the Day the Lord Has Made)
Lord, who may dwell within Your tent, or on Your holy hill?
All those who keep Your covenant and walk within Your will.
All they who with integrity work peace and righteousness,
forever in God’s house shall be forgiven, kept, and blessed.
Let truth from every heart proceed, and slander disappear:
Thus shall we know God’s grace indeed and feel His presence near.
No evil to your neighbor speak, nor turn against your friend:
Thus shall you know the end you seek – God’s presence without end.
Let every sinner be despised; but those who fear the Lord
shall honor have before our eyes, according to God’s Word.
All they who keep their word in faith, though suffering may ensue,
shall know the favor of God’s grace, His presence ever true.
No greed and no injustice shall they do who seek the Lord;
but on His mercy ever call and stand upon His Word.
From the Celtic Revival
“Ailbe” – as in The Fellowship of Ailbe
I’m often asked about the name of our Fellowship, where it comes from and what it means. Here is a brief video, which we use with those who are becoming Members of The Fellowship, that explains the role “Ailbe” played in the Celtic Revival (430-800 AD), and how we use that name in our ministry.
