‘If we are close enough to Jesus to know his heart, we will be able to see from his perspective. God wants to do something radically new in our generation. If we draw near enough to him to see it, we can be part of its unfolding.’

Paul S Williams, Chief Executive of Bible Society; The Bible in Transmission, Summer 2020

We pray to be generous and visible people of Jesus Christ.
