1–5 July 2024 (Mon–Fri)

Jesus used parables and signs to express the good news of the Kingdom of Heaven. We want to spot them, understand them, experience them and even create them in our everyday lives. So, this week we’ll be looking at the what, why and how of this creativity. Then we will explore how our imitation of Jesus can mean that our own lives of work, relationships and everyday being can also be kingdom oriented, and become unique and beautiful signs for others and our world.
