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 series of images and poems about moving from anxiety and depression to hope, trust and the ability to relate to the world again. Little Guy journeys with us.
E- Liturgies & Prayers
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.
Advent & Christmas
Poetry, liturgy and narrative resources on beloved Advent and Christmas themes, questioning the cosy and sentimental view of the festive season and taking seriously the idea that God in Christ is born as a vulnerable outsider who transforms the world in radical ways.
Powerful and moving readings, stories and poems for Easter. Rachel Mann writes with the voices of the characters involved in the biblical accounts of passion and resurrection, unafraid to explore the darkest aspects evoked by these events.
Care For Creation
In this book of biblical reflections Eden Project Scientific Director Ghillean Prance draws richly from his experiences exploring the Amazon and many other regions, together with his knowledge of references to plants and animals in the Bible, to help us wonder at the marvels of nature and so to treat God's creation with reverence and more respect.
A resource for individuals and groups wishing to explore the Iona Community's integrated approach to spirituality in the space of four weeks. Each week covers an area of the Community''s engagement and the days include a 'community experience', a Bible reading, material for reflection, prayers and thoughts to ponder.
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.
