Conversations with Jesus

11–17 July 2020 (Sat–Fri)

Patrick will look at the Conversations in St Johns Gospel: with Jesus’ mother, at Cana of Galilee; with Nicodemus; with the Woman at the Well; with Mary and Martha at the grave of Lazarus; with the man born blind; with Pilate and with Peter on the shore of Galilee. These conversations give us insights into how Jesus engages with human need, religion, meaning, grief, power and disappointment. They will open our eyes to how Jesus used conversation to establish the Kingdom in people’s lives.
