This prayer is 'Columba's Blessing' from Evening Prayer in Celtic Daily Prayer. St Columba was an Irish monk who established the mission base on the island of Iona from which Scotland was evangelised. This calligraphic design by Pam French is also available as an A5 poster.
There are 52 (business card size) cards in this set - one a week of the year to use how you please to help the Rule of the Northumbria Community sink deep. Each card contains a quotation from, or about, the Rule. The idea is that you can take one out of the box at a time and keep it in your pocket or handbag, or prop it on your desk or beside your bed - wherever it works for you to be regularly reminded through the week of the thought displayed. It can be an aid to meditation or a spur to action. Alternatively, you might choose to use them as bookmarks - or in all sorts of other ways that might work for you. The words are set against 3 designs: A candle for AVAILABILITY, A beach lifebuoy for VULNERABILITY, A 'coracle' for words from or about the Rule which apply to both categories. The set of 52 cards is supplied in a plain clear plastic box.
These words by David Adam form part of the Felgild Compline (for Wednesday each week) in Celtic Daily Prayer. This calligraphic design by Pam French is also available as an A4 poster, an A6 Greetings card and an A6 postcard.
