Radical Discipleship Caring for the Stranger - Krish Kandiah

Radical Discipleship Caring for the Stranger - Krish Kandiah

Krish Kandiah says that hospitality to the stranger is the key to intimacy with God, and when we answer his call to compassionate action we will find it life-giving.

Start Date:
Saturday 18th May 2019
Start Time:
St Paul's Cathedral, London

This revolutionary message runs through the whole history of God’s relationship with humanity. He calls the people of the Promised Land to provide for ‘the alien, the orphan and the widow’. Jesus teaches that in caring for prisoners, the poor and the sick we are caring for him. The people of the early church lived together, providing for each other’s needs in ways that were radical then and now.

But in the 21st century we can feel too busy, too overwhelmed, even to begin to find a way to live this out in our own lives. The need seems enormous and what we can offer can feel so small.

Krish Kandiah will explore why God calls us to this radical discipleship and what happens when we answer the call. He will also offer suggestions for finding ways that are practical, joyful and sustainable in our own lives.

Dr Krish Kandiah is the Founder and Director of the adoption and fostering charity Home for Good, an ambassador for Tearfund and the author of numerous books including God is Stranger (Hodder 2017). He lives in Oxfordshire with his wife and seven children, including fostered and adopted children. ❖
