David Petts on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne

David Petts talks about Lindisfarne, the Holy Island. He talks about how St Cuthbert ended up as patron saint of the island, and how the practice of early Christians there. Since Lindisfarne is a tidal island, the coming and going of the tides was often compared with the parting of the Red Sea, and the sea itself was seen as a channel to God.
