Doing December Differently

Nicola Slee & Rosie Miles £14.99

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.

George F MacLeod £8.99

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

Janet Lees £10.99

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.

Mary Low £8.99

A fine collection of readings, poems, theology and liturgy to help us on our unfinished journey to ecological awareness. 'Give me sustainability, but not yet,' could be our 21st-century version of St Augustine's famous 'continence' prayer. We need to start rethinking our beliefs as if the rest of nature mattered, linking liberation theology with environmental issues, for as the world becomes more uninhabitable, it is the poorest who suffer first and longest. But our relationship with non-human nature is more than just material and economic. We need to start loving nature for its own sake, not just for what we can get out of it, physically, emotionally or spiritually.

Neil Paynter (ed) £10.99

Daily readings for four months from a wide range of contributors within the Iona Community. These prayers, liturgies, songs, poems and articles, which reflect the concerns of the Community, can be used for group or individual reflection and are intended to inspire positive action and change in our lives.

The Jesse Tree

Thom M Shuman £8.99

Lent is traditionally a time of repentance and penitence but it also offers an opportunity to see the world afresh.

Neil Paynter £10.99

This book invites us to recommit ourselves to act for justice each time we join in the simple sharing of a meal. It is also very much a celebration - of food, of diversity, of community and sharing, of Creator and creation.

Joy Mead £10.99

A book which explores the making and the mystery of bread - growing, making, baking, sharing - in story and recipe, poetry and prayer. In bread we see the true connectedness of all life - the uniting of body and soul, spirit and material.
