Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

Stanza 6 calls us to taste and see of the goodness of Christ at the Lord’s Table, a prominent theme in confessional statements about the Lord’s Table, such as Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Days 28-30, Questions and Answers 75-82 and Belgic Confession, Article 35.
 
Stanza 7 speaks of our hope of eternal life. How beautiful to match up these words with Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 22, Question and Answer 58, “…after this life I will have perfect blessedness such as no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no human heart has ever imagined; a blessedness in which to praise God forever.”

Author and Composer Information

The Iona Community is an ecumenical Christian group of men and women based on the small island of Iona off the coast of Scotland. The community began in 1938 when he Rev. George MacLeod of the Church of Scotland began a ministry among the unemployed poor who had been neglected by the church. He took a handful of men to the island to rebuild the ruins of a thousand-year-old abbey church. That rebuilding became a metaphor for the rebuilding of the common life, a return to the belief that daily activity is the stuff of godly service—work, and worship.  The Community has since grown to include a group of members, associates, and friends all over the United Kingdom and many other contries. In addition to many conferences that attract people to Iona from around the world, the Community is known for its publishing of new songs and prayers for worship, both developed in community and gathered from around the world. For more information on the Iona Community, check their website: www.iona.org.uk. John Bell is probably the community’s most well-known member, having composed and arranged much of the community’s music.
