Be the first to review this product

An exploration of the evocative and memorable approach to worship that has been developed by the Iona Community at its island centres and elsewhere.

Nancy Cocks blends liturgies she has created with explanations and interpretations of their meaning as she challenges her readers to ‘look’ for God in the contemporary world. She outlines the different ways in which prayer gatherings and worship events can invite us to recognise what we cannot see: the mystery that is God in our midst.

In addition, the book includes short poetic reflections, stories, dialogues and homilies. Several pieces were developed specifically for services in which children have leadership roles. Others were designed to attract listeners for whom an extended traditional sermon could be foreign or alienating. Every section develops a fresh biblical insight and explores ‘reverent play’ between the ear and the voice, the eye and worship space. The author offers a truly profound approach to liturgy and spirituality.

Nancy Cocks, a former Deputy Warden of Iona Abbey, is a Presbyterian minister who has taught at the Atlantic School of Theology, Halifax, Nova Scotia. She is the author of several children’'s books and also of Growing Up with God: Using Stories to Explore a Child's Faith and Life.
