A note from Wild Goose



It's St Columba's Day on June 9th and an opportunity to reflect on the legacy of those long-ago events, when Columba and his monks landed on the shores of Iona and decided to establish a monastery there. Our new download provides a liturgy and resources for a celebration, and we also give a reminder of our other Columba material.

Pilgrim and penitent

Ian Bradley

lan Bradley examines the life, character and achievements of St Columba and attempts to strip away the layers of myth and historical distortion that have grown up around accounts of Columba’s life and heritage. He also explores the distinctive nature of Columban Christianity and its message – not always a comfortable one – for us today.
