Holy Flames in Scottish Winds

with Ray Hughes - Historian, storyteller, musician, and minister to the nations.

and James Nesbit - Nationally recognized Prophetic Artist and Intercessory worshipper and conference speaker are coming together for what could prove to be a journey of a lifetime.

 

Scotland is known for its stark beauty and glorious history. It’s abundance of legends, ballads and poetry awakens the warrior poet in us all. However, there are stories that are yet be told. This is an invitation to those who have a desire to explore this amazing land with us on a spiritual treasure hunt with strategic spiritual purposes. We believe that there are embers of former fires lying hidden in the land that will return to full flame and burn with an even greater glory than their first.

Some of the most beautiful and life impacting places in the world are also some of the most hidden and forgotten. The same goes for people. Some of the most forgotten people are some of the most beautiful and when their stories are discovered they are the most life impacting. Today’s world would be a very different and more beautiful place if we knew how to remember yesterday’s world. It starts with looking and listening, seeing and hearing the overlooked and seeking out the unheard. For some of those glorious stories of the past are sure keys to Scotland's glorious future and ours. The scriptures tell us to remember God's mighty acts and tell of His wondrous works to the generations to come.

Ray will be telling the stories of Scotland’s past as we journey through some of most beautiful places on earth. We will hear the stories of the people and land where some of the most significant events in human history took place. Ray will help us discover the wonder of the Highlands and Islands with engaging historical insight and prophetic perspective as only he can do.

We’ll explore the people and places that were epicenters of spirituality in the miraculous and mystical days of Celtic Christianity. We will visit ancient ruins as well as the sites of some of the greatest and most glorious outpourings in Revival History. We will visit places where the fires of God's glory burned with such intensity that nations came to the light. We will join our voices to the songs that have been quietened with time as James leads us in intercessory worship. Engaging daily in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs aimed at releasing healing and fanning the eternal flames of the Covenanters, holy men and women who have gone before us, having laid down their lives for their faith. We will walk where they walked and pray again their words for Scotland. We will assemble on battlefields and stand in throne rooms of earthly kings.

We’ll stand on castle walls and ask God to do the things that He holds in His heart for Scotland’s future. We will engage in times of prayer and flame-fanning, prophetic declaration. We will also make room for seaside walks and prayer strolls on cobblestone streets.

There will be prayer assignments in strategic places.

There will be more than ample time to immerse ourselves in present day Scottish culture and plenty of shopping opportunities. We schedule for time to simply experience the amazing land of Scotland. 

If dining with new and old friends in lovely restaurants with delicious food and excellent service appeals to you or, if you enjoy sleeping in hotels that you don’t want to leave, with views that draw you out for a walk in rain or shine, this might be a journey that you don’t want to miss.

  • The Island of Iona, thought to be the first Christian site of Scotland. This is where St. Columba established the first monastery and wrote the Book of Kells.

  • Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Castle which holds the stone of destiny.
