I made this series of video meditations three years ago. I am struck by the incredible timelessness of these words from the Iona Community/Wild Goose Worship Group in Scotland.
Three years ago, if you had told me our world would be in the situation it is now, would I have believed you? Probably not.
But these words were written almost thirty years ago, when the world sat in yet another place of struggle. And in the Advent season as we read words from Isaiah and from Paul’s letters, I am reminded that the struggle is not only real but perpetual – the struggle for the peaceable realm of God. This piece reminds us that stepping forward from the places of despair is a matter of one step at a time.
