Advent & Christmas
Explores how people of faith and goodwill might mark the midwinter season and the Christmas festival with integrity and simplicity. How can we include others and celebrate difference without putting us all under intolerable strain, or perpetuating false and oppressive myths of the ideal family life? Reflections on the origins, diverse meanings and customs associated with Christmas, personal stories, and liturgical and ritual resources that can be adapted and used in the home, in group gatherings and in church settings.
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.
