    Reclaiming the Iona vision
     
    If I blog at all over the weekend it'll be from Glasgow. I'm about to head up north to spend a good city break / Iona break, including some time planning a week on the island next year aimed at finding ways of opening up the island centres to those on low income, the otherwise socially-excluded. This was a major aspect of the original aim of the Iona Community project but in more recent time the island's become rather a cosy middle-class retreat centre (eg, see yesterday's blog). So our small group is hoping to find ways to reclaim it, to rekindle the original commitment of the community, and are keen to invite others who share that vision to spend a week next May exploring how that may happen. If y'r interested let me know. Meantime, watch this space.
