A Dramatic Mission

It was a great joy for us to host members of the Riding Lights Theatre Company last week. Alongside members of the Mission and Ministry Committee, the team worked with different groups in and around the Cathedral seeking to tell the story of God's love in new and dramatic ways.  

Sometimes it is good for us to hear again familiar concepts, ideas and stories, and to have them interpreted in different ways. Humour and surprise can unlock aspects of the Gospel in ways we might not have imagined. The gospel writers tell us that Jesus used storytelling as a tool to reveal the truth of God's love, and we can find these stories throughout the New Testament.

As we give thanks for the week that has past, let us pray that each of us may continue to find new ways to share in God's mission of love and find the courage to participate joyfully.
