Now is the Time Small Group Study
with Ruth Harvey, Leader of the Iona Community, Laura Hunter, Linda Yates & Janice Maclean
The study offers an opportunity to explore what it is like to dwell in the liminal space created by this pandemic. We learn how to read the signs of the times and glimpse new possibilities in the issues arising around us. Our Advent practices show us the way.
