Alongsider's Biblical Basis
Our leader, and Prior, sets out the theological and mission basis :
“It is within my heart at this time that our Order of Jacobs Well should be considering how to share in ever more positive ways what has been known and grown in our Wells for many years - the ‘Good News’ of the Kingdom of God …… In Christ’s parable, the farmer who sowed the seed did not choose only to sow on to the good and fertile ground. Instead he was broadcasting the seed everywhere and anywhere, and thus with varying results. Jesus shows us that such free sowing is the nature of God’s love for his children. In the same way it would be really good to find ways of bringing those other children together; those who would love to become more closely connected within the Order, so that we all might learn and share our kingdom lives together…….. From such communication would come stronger prayer lives, greater, and greatly needed. Kingdom growth; more Kingdom seekers and even more Wells.”
