Meditations & Reflections
A book of reflections, meditations and prayers for Advent and Christmas, Lent, Holy Week and Easter, Ascension and Pentecost arising out of conversations about faith, love, doubt and hope.
A collection of short stories told by vivid voices, charting the changing cycles and seasons of the year, and reflecting the liturgical patterns of the church and all the weathers of our hearts.
A new, smaller-format edition of Ewan Mathers' beautiful photographs depicting in detail the carvings of the restored cloisters of Iona Abbey, with text reflecting on the meaning of each design and information about the flora and fauna of the Isle of Iona and beyond, which most of the carvings represent. This use of symbols from the natural world reflects the close links of the early Celtic Christians with the land around them.
New prayers, in the 'Celtic' tradition, for the whole of life - from chopping carrots or doing the laundry to healing our deeply wounded world.
A book about the original Pearls of Life bracelet. There is a now a new version of the Pearls (available from Verbum Sweden at: https://www.verbum.se/fralsarkransen/fralsarkransen-av-glas-p52634417) where one of the beads is a different colour, but most of this book is still relevant.
A book for Easter that is about more than easy answers - that encourages us to seek signs of the continuing Passion of God in the world, not in abstract ideas but in our human bodies and souls.
Advent & Christmas
Daily readings for Advent from members, associates and friends of the Iona Community in various different countries around the world. The reflections point us to places and people where the light of God's presence shines, often - surprising as it may seem - brightly. Their insights enable us to walk more creatively and compassionately in our own local situations, and to discover that the light is sometimes present where we least expect it.
