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.
A six-day cycle of prayer in the Celtic tradition, incorporating the daily themes used in Iona Abbey: justice and peace, prayer for healing, care for the earth, commitment to Christ, the communion of heaven and earth, and welcome and hospitality. Includes a lectionary of psalms and gospel readings.
Meditations & Reflections
