BeschreibungIn 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 neighbors. It also covers his ministry of fostering community in housing estates, encountering the first stages of the Troubles, and the formation and developing of the Corrymeela Community in 1965. He also discusses cross-cultural work he did with students in Glasgow, and the personal discovery of "the other Ireland" during his five years spent in Dublin. Born on a farm near Belfast in 1931.
