Quick thoughts about Holy Island

I have just left the island and have time to use before going across to Inner Farne to see Cuthbert’s powerhouse of prayer.

So I am sat at Beal”s Barn with a cup of coffee – manfully resisted the Border Tart!

Here’s Aidan’s mission strategy as far as I can work it out:

Walk the lanes and villages
Encounter people
Engage conversation
Ask: are you a Christian?
If no: may I tell you about it?
If yes: do you want to be a better one?

All of that backed up by real, self-sacrificial, active compassion and ceaseless prayer.

Of course there was the reassurance of a local friendly king, but essentially that was it.

Is there really anything more complicated about it than that even in today’s world?
