Chasing the Wild Goose: The Story of the Iona Community

Along with a team of local Glaswegians, they also run a monthly, city-centre workshop and worship event, Holy City. Bell and Maule, with their collaborators, the Wild Goose Worship Group and more recently, the Wild Goose Collective, have produced around 50 published books and CDs since the mids.

The approaches and practices of the Wild Goose Resource Group have been widely imitated and written about. Bruce Kenrick , the founder of housing organisation Shelter , was a member.

The image also reflects a tradition of someone remaining on watch. The early Christian Community on Iona founded by St Columba sent members out to evangelise mainland Scotland and beyond, with some members remaining behind. The community's publishing group, Wild Goose Publications, produces books on social justice , political and peace issues, holistic spirituality , healing , and innovative approaches to worship , including music books, tapes, CDs , short drama scripts and material for personal reflection and group discussion.

Many of these are the work of John L. Bell and the Wild Goose Resource Group.

And I pray that one day there will be no poor people in the Church because there will be no poverty. And I pray to you, the God of miracles, the God of the rich, the God of the poor.
