Unconventional discipleship

A blind beggar persistently calls out to Jesus, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!’ Jesus tells him that his faith has made him well. Immediately, the man is able to see again, and becomes a follower of Jesus.

This week's resources explore: the gifts of sight and insight; something to shout about.

ROOTS is looking for a new Children & Young People Editor
Jenny Warbrick, the current editor, will soon be leaving us to pursue a writing project of her own. We're therefore looking for a new Editor to commission and shape the ROOTS resources for children and young people. The job is home-based, and will involve research and development of the resources as well as day-to-day editorial work.
Find out more about the role, and how to apply. The closing date is Friday 2 November.
Please pass this on to anyone you know who has a passion for supporting ministry with children and young people, who might be interested in this role.
