A day in Iona

Iona is one of the sacred places of Scotland, founded by St. Columba in the 6th century. It is one of the "thin places" meaning that the vail between heaven and earth is very thin here and it is easy to sense the presense of God. The early Celtic believers thought of God's creation as a clear testament of God's goodness and character. We spent much of our day taking a pilgrim walk around the island guided by a couple of residents from the Iona Community. I'll post a few pics just to see some of Iona's beauty.
