    A God who gives
     
    Holy Ground is published. A very welcome new book.

    Neil and Helen's introduction sets the tone for the book's rich content: "All ground is holy ground - city streets, housing estates, shanty towns, playgrounds, prisons, shopping malls."

    The book, written by folks around the Iona Community, is full of liturgies and resources on concerns ranging through globalisation, food, water, HIV/AIDS, the environment, interfaith dialogue, the arms trade, prisoners of conscience, 20th-century martyrs, homelessness, racism, gender, living in community, youth, children, ageing...

    I've had my advance copies a couple of weeks, because my prisoners of conscience liturgy* is in it, but it's only just appeared on the Wild Goose website. It's pretty unique and, in the light of current world / home events, pretty valuable, I'd say. A gift.

    [* which you can read on the pdf download extract, containing a generous 31 pages of contributions]
