Another Thought for the Day this week – this time a reflection on the Iona Celebrations of the 1450th Anniversary of the arrival of St Columba
‘Always wanted to go there … special place … on my bucket list’ Those were some of the reactions on Facebook when I said that I was going last weekend to Iona for the celebrations to mark the 1450th Anniversary of St Columba’s arrival. It’s a special island. George MacLeod, founder of the Iona Community, said that it was a ‘thin place’. He meant that it is a holy place – where earth and heaven, the mundane and the spiritual are very close. People of all kinds – of all faiths and none – feel it.
