Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9)

A blog written by the Rev Dr Norman Shanks For seven years, from 1995 to 2002, when I was working for the Iona Community, I had the joy and privilege of spending Holy Week on Iona, when guests and staff at the Community’s islands centres shared a week’s programme entitled Experiencing Easter.  Through worship, workshops, … More Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9)

Holy Week Reflections: Wednesday

I couldn’t help noticing last week that the first four doctors who died in the UK as a result of the coronavirus were all from an immigrant background. We in Glasgow know very well how much we depend on immigrants from all parts of the world in our health service, not just as doctors, but as nurses, porters, auxiliary staff, pharmacists, carers.

This too is a kind of betrayal. … More Holy Week Reflections: Wednesday

Holy Week Reflections: Tuesday

According to United Nations statistics, women do two-thirds of the world’s work.

Unnoticed, their work poorly recognised; we can assume that this was the same in Jesus’ time. … More Holy Week Reflections: Tuesday

Holy Week Reflections: Palm Sunday

Holy Week …comes to gather us around the one true holy place of the Christian religion, Jesus himself, displayed to the world as the public language of our God, placarded on the history of human suffering that stretches along the roadside. This is a week for learning not management, bargaining and rule-keeping, but naked trust in that naked gift.  (Rowan Williams) … More Holy Week Reflections: Palm Sunday

Footprints

One night I dreamed a dream. As I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, One belonging to me and one to my Lord. After the last scene of my life flashed before … More Footprints
