Seven Actions download transspaser

Seven Actions (PDF download)

A service of prayer and Holy Communion for Maundy Thursday

Stephen J Maunder

Digital download: This reflective service for Maundy Thursday was first used in 2016 to provide a new alternative to a Tenebrae liturgy. It includes prayers and meditations, and leads into Holy Communion. The liturgy focuses on the account of the Last Supper in John 13. Seven candles are lit during the service in response to seven actions, which are noted during the narrative. The lit candles offer a reminder of the presence of light even in the darkness of the eve of Good Friday.

Stephen Maunder is a Methodist presbyter who is in ministry in south-east London.

Iona: A Map transspaser

Iona: A Map (new updated edition)

Available in folded or flat versions

The Iona Community

’I sometimes take this map out – when I’ve been away from Iona for far too long a time – and read it like a poetry book: I gaze at the beautiful artwork and place names: ‘Sacred hollow’, ‘The old man’s hill’, ‘Port of the coracle’, ‘Bay at the back of the ocean’, ‘White strand of the monks’, ‘Port of black stones’, ‘The pigeons’ cave’ … Reading the map takes me back to all the magical and life-changing times I’ve had on Iona. It somehow helps me to find myself again and to rekindle the wonder.’

This new edition has been extensively redrawn to reflect new and changed use of buildings, rerouted fence lines, etc.
