  • In this memoir John Morrow, a retired minister of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, traces some of the experiences of his life and ministry through which he began to learn, reflect and attempt to live out an ecumenical ministry of reconciliation. It begins with some of the formative influences of his youth when he grew up on a farm in north Down where there was close contact with Protestant and Catholic neighbours. It also covers his ministry of community-building in housing estates, encountering the first signs of the Troubles, and the formation and development of the Corrymeela Community. John Morrow was born in 1931 on a farm near Belfast, which led to a training in Agricultural Science at Queens University. He later studied theology in Belfast and Edinburgh, and was a member of the Iona Community in Scotland from 1958-71. He has served in parish ministry in Northern Ireland and Edinburgh, and was a university chaplain in Glasgow, Dublin and Belfast. A founder member of the Corrymeela Community in 1965, he was leader of that Community from 1979-93.
