Digital download: Originally compiled for a Highland village, this ecumenical prayer walk uses local landmarks to relate to the concerns of the community and its links to the wider world. It is based on the medieval tradition of fourteen stations of the Cross, from the condemnation, to the burial of Jesus, and uses scriptural passages, well-known hymns and reflective poetry.
As every small community will be geographically different, it can be adapted to provide a feasible route. With stops, the event should take between 60 and 90 minutes at a gentle pace.
The walk is meant as quiet blessing, based on the Christian faith offered but not imposed. It begins at one church and ends at another, where it can be timed to fit with a Good Friday service.
Rosemary Power is a member of the Iona Community who has been in pastoral, sector and congregational ministries. She writes and speaks on the history of Iona, spirituality and issues of social justice.
