Kenneth Steven

These haiku-like poems arise out of Kenneth Steven’s perception of the Iona landscape. They have the sense of wonder, seeing, and being in the moment that many of us experience when spending time on this jewel-like island in a turquoise sea.

Iona has been Kenneth’s spiritual home since his childhood. He even learned to walk on one of the island’s beaches. He sometimes fears that there may be no more hidden corners to find, but there always are.

A lovely memento of a visit to Iona.

A reminder of downloads for
The Feast of the Transfiguration

Liturgy for the Feast of the Transfiguration download transspaser

Liturgy for the Feast of the Transfiguration (PDF download)

Hiroshima Day, 6th August

Norman Shanks

Digital download: A liturgy celebrating the Feast of the Transfiguration which coincidentally falls on the day that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. The 'shining power' of the Transfiguration is compared with the 'reverse transfiguration' of the prioritisation of nuclear weapons over human needs. So this is a liturgy of commitment to standing on the edge and working for a transformation to another, more creative and just, world.

Norman Shanks is a former Leader of the Iona Community.
