men and women could pray, work, and worship in community. From this community, Columba established over 300 churches and over 30 monastic communities across Scotland and
Northern England. Godly men and women trained here, like Aidan would establish communities like Holy Island on Lindisfarne, Northumbria. This spirit of being with Christ in community so
