Jesus describes the Kingdom of God using many different images: a mustard seed, hidden treasure, a woman making bread, a beautiful jewel, stories from farming and fishing and the home. Some images are wonderfully encouraging, other have the power to challenge or lead us to question. This week will explore the stories Jesus tells and help us discover what it means to live in the Kingdom of God.
The Rt Revd Jackie Searle is the Bishop of Crediton and our local Bishop in Devon. She is a passionate teacher with a desire to encourage and build up Christians to live out their calling in the love and grace of God. She is married to the Revd David Runcorn (a former chaplain at Lee Abbey) and they are delighted to be joining us for this Summer week.
