Twenty years ago or longer ago, my sister gave me a cross. It was called the Kildalton cross which was carved about 1300 years ago.
Since then this cross has been one of my "touchstones". It's incredible in many ways. One of which is that it has very little lichen growing on it. Compare it to the gravestone below.
I visited the cross yesterday where it stands on the eastern shores of Islay (pronounced I-lah) next to the Kildalton church. When I touched it, the stone was warm and smooth, almost as if alive. I wish I'd had more time to spend there because I sense I have a connection there somehow. Thin places. They will do that to you!
I'd recommend Islay to anyone, for the history, views, the people, and of course the whiskey. There's a round church in Bowmore that was built that way so "the devil doesn't have any place to hide." There are castles, ruins, beaches, wildlife tours and more.
Today may you be aware of the thin places in your life for that's where the divine is breaking in.
