Many people find the modern world a threatening place. Technologies than can control life, social and moral changes, ethnic tensions and other events that dominate our daily news often make the world seem an alien place. Yet for all its failings, it is God's world and Waymarks teaches us to recognize and celebrate his presence and activity, even where we least expect it. Waymarks explores the ways in which life's difficult challenges can be transformed into 'moments of possibility', where we can co-operate in bringing good even out of seemingly hopeless situations. These include attentiveness to Scripture, sensing our interconnections with the earth and with each other, giving expression to our creative imagination, letting go in laughter and in tears, rediscovering prophecy, healing, confession, finding friendship with God and regaining the sense that life is provisional and death is part of the journey we are making. These themes have been developed in reponse to the many questions brought by countless visitors and pilgrims to Iona and they offer an authentic and practical spirituality for life in today's complex world.
