I join the Durham North Team Ministry with a real sense of anticipation. Both Neil and I are very thankful to God for the way He has led us on our journey thus far and are equally excited about how that will continue alongside you all. I chose the passage from Luke 24:13-35 “The Emmaus Journey” for my licencing service because I felt it identifies many aspects of journeying together that I believe will help shape my ministry with you and hopefully our lives together. Jesus drew near and walked alongside. He enquired and He listened. He encouraged His companions to share their story and enlightened them with stories from scripture. Through this simple building of relationship came the offer of hospitality, connection and ultimately recognition in the breaking of bread.” With joy filled faith, Jesus travelling companions were inspired to carry on and witness to others. My prayer is that for us collectively, the Emmaus story, gives a blueprint that will inspire as we journey together. As this story touches our hearts afresh, may we reach out and invite others to join us along the way. I look forward to sharing in your stories and together telling others the Jesus story, which is after all, the greatest story ever told. "
