  • This marvellously illustrated volume of prayers encourages us to see not only with the eyes but also with the heart; to celebrate the glory of light in the mystery and beauty of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, and to long that we ourselves may reflect the light of Christ, whatever the difficulties or joys of our lives.

    "True light of the world Enter the depths of my life Flood the dark and hidden places Overflow my whole being With the light of your glory"

  • David Adam

          David Adam is one of the best-loved figures in Celtic Spirituality. He also writes poetry and teaching material for churches. Living on Holy Island for thirteen years he has a special love for the saints of Iona and Lindisfarne. He now lives on land that was once given to St Cuthbert.

    A good few of David’s poems and prayers have been turned into songs or hymns and they appear on CDs. He has broadcast on TV and radio on many occasions, talking on Celtic saints and their way of life. He is interested in Northumbrian folk tales and with a folk singer relates these to various audiences. He is a keen bird-watcher and loves walking in the hills.

    David wants people to learn to stop for a while and to wonder at the mystery of the whole of creation and the marvel of their own being. ‘Too many people see the world as a problem to be solved rather than a mystery to be enjoyed.’

    He has a great interest in liturgy and believes it should be deepened by teaching people to meditate on the simplest yet most profound of statements such as: ‘The Lord is here’.
