We are delighted that Dr Hannah Steele, Director and Lecturer in Theology at St Mellitus College London and Southwark resident, is coming to speak to us! Hannah has just published (a Sunday Times Top Ten Best Seller!) ‘Living His Story’. In Living His Story, (the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book 2021), Hannah Steele uncovers liberating and practical ways of sharing the gospel story afresh. With warmth and encouragement, she shows us how we can live Jesus’ story in our own lives simply by being the people God made us and allowing people to be drawn to him through our natural gifts.
In the Mission and JPIC Teams we always talk about the five marks of mission. We believe in joining in with God of Mission. Our God has a care and concern for creation, social justice, people’s needs and a deepening relationship with Him. In other words, the fifth, fourth, third and second marks of mission: Treasure, Transform, Tend and Teach. For many of us, the first Mark of Mission- ‘Tell’ is more problematic. How can we share our faith authentically in a pluralist culture? How can we share our faith confidently when we have questions?
We are gathering more and more people from across the Diocese of Southwark who would be like to be encouraged in ‘Tell’- the First Mark of Mission. This can be done through art, podcasts, video, song but also conversation and the spoken word. Please consider joining this group and encouraging ourselves and others in creative ways to share our faith!
