We are delighted to welcome the Revd Canon Andrew Dow, who was vicar of St Paul’s Leamington Spa from 1978 to 1988, to lead this ‘Listening to God’ Teaching Day for The Well.
Just as a senior doctor does his ward rounds, so the Great Physician, Jesus Christ, tours seven of his churches in 1st century Asia Minor, diagnosing and prescribing. What signs of frailty or fitness will he find in these congregations? Weariness and faithfulness, compromise and perseverance – to name a few. Is this merely of interest to a church historian? Or does the Book of Revelation’s favourite number, seven, indicate a more contemporary message, a deeper purpose?
