The Christian life is a journey. The image of people travelling and journeying together is one that we see again and again in the Bible:

The Israelites under Moses travelling from Egypt to Canaan. Mary and Joseph travelling from Nazareth to Bethlehem, and then fleeing to Egypt. The two disciples journeying along the road to Emmaus with the risen Christ. Paul and his missionary journeys.

These stories demonstrate how God takes people to new places, leads them to new pastures, supports and guides them with visions and signs and deep, deep trust.

One thread running through these stories is that of discovery, of seeking the way. The journeys are about the experience of travelling, the excitement of discovery, the opportunity to serve, the companionship, the challenges met on the way and the solutions.

The theme for 2018 – 19 is SEEKING THE WAY.
