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.
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.
New prayers, in the 'Celtic' tradition, for the whole of life - from chopping carrots or doing the laundry to healing our deeply wounded world.
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.
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.
A welcome accompaniment to the Advent days of anticipating Christ's birth. Follow its invitation of prophetic prayers and vibrant full-colour artwork to watch and wait for the coming of the Holy One. Open your eyes and heart to the wideness of God, and God's gentle but persistent call for justice and mercy.
Reflections, meditations, prayers, activities and liturgies for Lent. Includes a liturgy for Mother's Day, worship for Ash Wednesday, an all-age service for Shrove Tuesday for making and sharing pancakes, and other all-age resources -
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.
These haiku-like poems arise out of Kenneth Steven's perception of the Iona landscape. They have the sense of wonder, seeing, and being in the moment that many of us experience when spending time on this jewel-like island in a turquoise sea.
Reflections, meditations, prayers and liturgies for Holy Week following the journey of Jesus from Palm Sunday to Easter Day. A book which affirms that, even in the darkness of betrayal and denial and death, we can rise up and live different lives: where the justice, peace and love poured out in Christ's life can be resurrected in our own.
