Love ye therefore the stranger

“Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt”. –Deuteronomy 10.12-11.1 Last week I travelled by train from London to my home in Bristol, having attended one of the Queen’s Garden Parties.

Community Life

‘In all honesty, I thought residential training institutions were dinosaurs. Why prepare people for a community-based ministry by taking them out of their community?
