Chasing the Wild Goose: The Iona Community

£2.99

Product description

"The story of the Iona Community, founded by George MacLeod in the 1930s, is one of the miracles of the twentieth century. At a time of great unemployment his vision and drive took men from the despair of Glasgow to rebuild the living quarters of the ruined Abbey of Iona. Out of that physical rebuilding there has also arisen a rebuilding by the Holy Spirit, both of the Church and of individual lives. Iona is beautiful, historic, peaceful - and challenging. Its story ranges from the community founded by St Columba in 563, through the centuries of the Benedictines, to the practical, praying, visionary community of today. To the thousands who travel every years to Iona, the Wild Goose - Celtic symbol of the Holy Spirit - speaks of life and meaning and hope."
