Back from the conference in Shetland Islands late last night. It was a great time. There were over 300 people from all over Europe, and I would guess all of them were there because they felt God wanted them there and flying to Shetland Islands [which is not very convenient] was an act of obedience. There was a lot of conversation about unity, Jesus plea for his people to be ONE (5x in John 17) and the much needed reconciliation and generosity in prayer that would open the way for God to do something in the North.
This is Andy Raine (Northumbria Community, Holy Island) leading some prayers from St Ninian at the chapel on St Ninian’s Isle. There was a strong Celtic flavor at the conference, and a pilgrimage to this island was a worthy addition. I had some great talks with Andy about the formation of his community at Lindisfarne and some of their daily rituals of prayer.
A dance at the conference. This is my favourite photo, but there are many more. – See all the Photos of Fire from The North
