A note from Wild Goose

View of Mull from Iona picture


We hope you noticed the new Communion liturgy for Pentecost published a few days ago and we're sorry we couldn't alert you to it at the time, apart from through the Community's Facebook page. We also have two more new downloads: a liturgy for Father's Day and another section of the book Saying Goodbye, on scattering ashes. As ever, we hope you find them useful.

Beyond the Baggage
of Fatherhood

(PDF download and PDF+PPT download)

David McNeish

Digital download: A liturgy for Father's Day, including two songs. The Bible is an uneasy place to find out about fathers – stories of human failure and frailty abound. Yet Joseph does not abandon Mary when he finds out that she is mysteriously pregnant … And Jesus dares to call God ‘Father’. Repeatedly. … What if fathering has a future beyond the bounds of patriarchal oppression? 8 pages.
