Equipped to go?

All-In Service Team | Mark 6:1-13 

Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village. Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits. These were his instructions: ‘Take nothing for the journey except a staff - no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. Wear sandals but not an extra shirt. Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.’

After being rejected in his home town, Jesus challenges his disciples to step out in faith and join him in taking the Good News to the surrounding villages. In this extract from our All-In Service Janet Chalmers, Susan Haynes, Dan Parnell and Rachel Fasham explore how we can share in Jesus' outreach today, and how some of our partners around the world are living out these values. The service also includes a reading and prayers from Ann Fasham.

The game Rachel refers to in her talk was a challenge to identify common objects just from extreme close-up photos, and the sketch showed a young person about to set out on a venture with fully-laden rucksack. The full video version of this service, including these visual items as well as music, can be viewed on YouTube. All the links to the various follow-up activities are on our website.
