Revd David Runcorn: The road to growth less travelled – spiritual paths in a missionary church
November 18, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
We are in unfamiliar country. A faith urgently needs to seek new ways of being present to a culture adrift from any spiritual roots and unable to recognise its loss. We will be exploring, experimenting and in conflict for the foreseeable future. ‘We do not see what we shall become’ (1 John 3.2). This is both exciting and disorientating. How individuals and communities are to live and pray faithfully through such times needs much wisdom. Jesus describes his way of life as less travelled (Matthew 7.13-14). I want to explore the challenge to Christian growth and maturing in our present context. In a church that is seeking to make ‘all the difference’ are there pathways of the spirit that remain ‘less travelled’?
