Ambition: What Jesus said about Power, Success and Counting Stuff

16–20 March 2020 (Mon–Fri)

Counting things is very much on the table at the moment. But how do we think biblically about notions of growth, ambition and success? If we keep Jesus’ radical vision of the Kingdom of God at the centre of all we do, we won’t go far wrong. Emma will help us to explore key spiritual dispositions that will enable us – whatever our vocation in life – to do just that.
