An evening with George MacLeod, founder of the Iona Community

Ron Ferguson and Tom Fleming

We are making this audio download available free for a period of one month.

A one-man play about the founder of the Iona Community. Based on George MacLeod’s conversations with the author, along with material drawn from sermons, prayers, diaries, letters and stories, the first half gives a sense of what it was like to be exposed to George MacLeod at the height of his powers. In the second, the old prophet sits in his room and reminisces about his 96 years on earth. Written by Ron Ferguson and performed by Tom Fleming. Two downloadble mp3 files with a play time of just under two hours.
