A note from Wild Goose
 

 


A new download from Joy Mead this week, and more resources for Pentecost and Trinity Sunday.

Don't forget the items that help the Iona Community's fundraising for the renovation of Iona Abbey. The Abbey and the MacLeod Centre are unable to welcome guests while work is being carried out but if we can raise £300,000 this summer, we can cut a year off the schedule, make significant savings and re-open sooner than planned. If you can help by buying one or more of these items, we would be very grateful.

Iona Calendar 2019 download transspaser

Iona Calendar 2019

Photographs by Iain Sarjeant

The Highland Family Group of the Iona Community has produced this beautiful Iona calendar for 2019, in conjunction with photographer Iain Sarjeant. Although many of the views will be familiar to anyone who knows Iona, Iain chooses to take many of his pictures from slightly different viewpoints, and in the early morning, or evening, to take advantage of the often beautiful light at those times of the day.

The calendar is 21cm x 21cm, and comes with a bonus picture of one of the more elusive places on Iona.

All profits from the sale of this calendar will go to the Iona Abbey Capital Appeal.

Iona of My Heart

Daily readings

(Book and e-book)

Neil Paynter

When editor Neil Paynter called for contributions to Iona of My Heart he wrote:

‘I’m looking for those human stories from Iona. You know the ones – we all have them. Stories about different folk coming together – people from different countries and backgrounds. Stories of encounter, challenge, exchange, connection, transformation. Stories about people and the power of the Spirit … Show why Iona and what the Iona Community does there is important to the world. Give it a human face.’

Four months of daily readings. Royalties to the Iona Community’s Iona Abbey Capital Appeal.

Pentecost is Now download transspaser

Pentecost is Now (PDF download)

A short act of worship

Joy Mead

Digital download: A short liturgy for Pentecost. ‘Pentecost isn’t a once and for all happening but ongoing and energising hope here, now, in this world, in this place. It’s about that which sustains us, enables us, provokes a just anger and arouses compassion. It’s about spirit-filled life bursting out of encounter with darkness and suffering …’

Pentecost as a Template (PDF download)

A Bible study

Ian M Fraser

Digital download: A Bible study that looks at how hierarchy in the church is a late and dodgy development. At Pentecost a community of brothers and sisters in Christ came into being ‘all one in Christ Jesus’. The whole church, not just official appointees, needs to make a new start, with women and men imaging the church with Pentecost as the corrective template.
