The Isle of Iona is a small island off the west coast of Scotland with a rich spiritual history. As early as the year 563 the Isle was a site for a Celtic monastery. In the middle ages it was the site of a Benedictine abbey and over the centuries has attracted many thousands of people on their own pilgrim journeys. Today the isle is the center of the Iona Community, a dispersed Christian ecumenical community working for peace and social justice, rebuilding of community and the renewal of worship. 

To learn more about the Iona Community, Caer Hallundbaek speaks with Reverend Kathleen Roney and Reverend Matilda Chase.

Topics in this hour include: How both women came to be affiliated with the Iona Community; how the community developed; the community's areas of concern and effort; banking; spirituality in the work place; the New World Foundation; Oasis; Kirkridge; the Iona Community Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation commitment; their Family Groups; the role of money; ecumenical and interfaith focus.

The program features the song "If You Come and Follow Me (The Summons)," a meaningful song to the community.

Also, Caer announces and shares from her gorgeous new book, INSPIRED RELATIONSHIPS: 7 Saints' Real-Life Lessons on How to Live, Love and Work, available here.
