A collection of Donald Eadie's reflections, letters, prayers and poems relating to the letting go of his old life as a result of illness and becoming a pilgrim in the borderlands, the place of exploration and discovery.
Daily readings celebrating the 'Iona effect' – about people from different countries and backgrounds coming together. Stories of encounter, challenge, exchange, connection, transformation. Stories about people and the power of the Spirit.
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.
Bible readings, reflections and prayers for the days of Holy Week, and a large section of resources, all from members, associates and friends of the Iona Community.
Poems of strong and well-crafted connections - between communities in the West of Scotland and the West Bank Palestinian territories; between prayer and politics; between a lyrical delight in the natural world - and down-to-earth living, observed with warmth and humour.
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.
