I presented the Something Understood programme on BBC Radio 4 this morning on the theme of the Irish seanfhocail 'It is in the shelter of each other that the people live" - "ar scáth a chéile a mhaireanns na daoine".
It was produced by the wonderful Rachel Hooper from Falling Tree. The audio and an outline of all the songs played and excerpts read is gathered on the BBC Something Understoodwebpage too, for about another week.
I did a short programme for Holy Thursday for BBC Radio Ulster. There are a few reflection pieces on the gospels, some music from Oláfur Arlands, Taizé and Lisa Gerrard (do, do, do listen to the magnificence of Lisa Gerrard's piece), and some poetry from Micheal O'Siadhail and Mark Jarman.
I've got an article in the Spring 2014 edition of Thresholds, the quarterly publication of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy Spirituality division. The paper explores community work and prayer through the lens of the phrase 'ar scáth a chéile a mhaireas na daoine'. It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.
