A series of Bible readings, prayers and colour images for each day of Lent and Holy Week, to invite reflection, contemplation and action in the world.
Stories, scripts and reflections, based on the biblical books from Genesis to Nehemiah, written by Iona Community members, associates, friends and others. Esther to Maccabees will follow.
New prayers, in the 'Celtic' tradition, for the whole of life - from chopping carrots or doing the laundry to healing our deeply wounded world.
Witty and reflective poems of faith and doubt, ranging from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden to the events of the first Easter, taking in on the way Julian of Norwich's hazelnut, Mastermind, God as a blizzard, and the eighth deadly sin.
A new edition which has been extensively revised and rearranged to include about 80% new material. The services draw on many traditions, including the Celtic, and aim to help us to be fully present to God, who is fully present to us – in our neighbour, in the political and social activity of the world around us, and in the very centre and soul of our being.
