The body language of God

As the Word made flesh and dwelling among us, Jesus physically demonstrated the continuity of God, his unchanging love and mercy that we can always count upon.

But he also showed us the God of surprises too. He changed what we thought about God and challenged the pre-conceived ideas that he came across in both society and religion.

In physical, bodily form – as the body language of God – Jesus re-imagined God for us.

Being disciples – Advent Bible study

Our Advent Bible studies this year will be based on Rowan Williams’ book, ‘Being Disciples’.

The book was described by the current Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, as ”Here is quite the most beautiful writing on discipleship I know. I am grateful for the inspiration that I find in these pages. I commend it to those who have been on this journey a long time, as well as to anyone who wonders what on earth following Jesus is all about.”
