WWBOX: Urban Pilgrimage: In Her Footsteps
February 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Saturday morning explorations and meditations on foot
This is not round Iona, or Cuthbert’s Way or the Camino, but a focused stroll around Glasgow.
We are enabling a series of these on the third Saturday of each month, from February to April 2018, as part of the weeWONDERBOX programme.
Each morning will focus on a different aspect of life and faith in the city, but the events are not only for locals.
Normally we will meet at The Ground, Iona Community Base, 21 Carlton Court at 10.00am, to finish around 13.00. However, please check specific event details below in case another location is the starting point.
- Sat 17th February: In Her Footsteps: walking with Glasgow women
This pilgrimage will be led by Kathy Galloway who will take us on an exploration of the themes of peace, justice and the meaning of citizenship. Kathy is a former Leader of the Iona Community and former Head of Christian Aid Scotland.
Subsequent urban pilgrimages in the series:
- Saturday 17th March: Glasgow & Slavery
Here, Iona Community member, Iain Whyte, will lead us through Glasgow locations that even today bear the clear traces of aspects of a less-than admirable Imperial past. Iain’s book ‘Scotland and the Abolition of Black Slavery, 1756-1838’ (Edinburgh University Press, 2006) undid any notions that slavery was an England-only enterprise.
- Saturday 21st April: Glasgow Counter-Tourism for Beginners #11
Using game tactics, ideas, our experiences and trust, Graham Maule – WGRG Resource Worker – aims to help us uncover hidden corners, buildings, facts, art, faces and patterns in the city.
