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.
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 of reflections reaffirming the fundamental connection between belief in God and commitment to and awareness of God's world, and calling us to recommit ourselves to the way of love in our uncertain times.
This spiral-bound journal, with quotes to inspire your own reflections, is ideal for recording your thoughts, prayers and memories, whether used on a trip to Iona, at home or on your travels.
Full-colour photographs - with accompanying short reflections, prayers, poems and stories - of the Abbey, Iona's white sand beaches, the pilgrimage around the island, seabirds, highland cattle, tracks and roads, boats and nets, kitchen pots, footprints in the sand, cotton grass bending in the breeze - and more.
Presents a method of using remembered (oral, not written) versions of the Bible with people of all ages and abilities, in which telling and interpreting the stories in light of the participants' own lives become inextricably linked.
A new edition of this collection of poems and prayers by the founder of the Iona Community, with images of the island. 'To be in a seat at Iona Abbey, to be moved by the awesome oratory of a MacLeod sermon in full flood, to be led into the nearer presence of God by means of kaleidoscopic, imaginative prayer, was to be privileged and - more importantly - to be changed.' Ron Ferguson, former Leader of the Iona Community
Readings from the founder of the Iona Community. Many lives were changed by George MacLeod's spine-tingling sermons, and many more by his personal example. These extracts give a flavour of the passion and poetry of the Celtic mystic who led the rebuilding of Iona Abbey.
Meditations & Reflections
These poems provide a powerful resource for personal contemplation and many of them can be used in a group or worship setting.
This collection of daily readings is designed to help us reconnect with the energies of God and to centre our lives upon things that ultimately matter.
