Strangers in residence
Jesus’ mission on this earth, among other things, was to establish for himself a kingdom of people who were both resident in this world, yet strangers from it. In a time of shifting moral climates and competing stories, how are we to understand these two aspects of our being followers of him? Indeed, who are we to be? This session opens up the Gospels, responding to Jesus’ invitation to be representatives of God’s coming kingdom.
