50 NEW PRAYERS FROM THE IONA COMMUNITY (BK)
Neil Paynter (Editor)
Fifty new prayers from young and old and from folk around the globe
From Glasgow to Cincinnati, from Malawi to Alaska, including well-known Iona Community writers like John Harvey, Ian M. Fraser, Peter Millar, Yvonne Morland, Chris Polhill, Thom Shuman, Brian Woodcock, the Wild Goose Resource Group and many others …
A pocketbook of prayers that might be used in a daily discipline, many on the concerns of the Iona Community – poverty and economic justice, welcome and hospitality, interfaith dialogue, church renewal, peacemaking …
A prayer book to use in church worship, and to carry in your coat or handbag out into the world: to connect with the still small voice in the midst of the busyness and babble; to root yourself firmly in the Word.
There are prayers here for the renewal of global and local community, and for recharging the battery of your mobile phone: ‘Either He is the Lord of everything or He is Lord of nothing,’ wrote George MacLeod, founder of the Iona Community.
Also includes a helpful ‘scrapbook’ of thoughts on prayer from many sources.
