Episode 6: Tim Davy | Vulnerable Children: Hostility, Hospitality, and Hope

Hostility, Hospitality, and Hope: A Biblical Reflection on Two Displaced Children

Tim Davy

Tim Davy reflects on the biblical stories of two vulnerable children in the Bible and what this might mean for the Church’s thinking and practice of mission.

In today’s episode Tim shares an article he wrote for Redcliffe’s Encounters Mission Journal, which looks at the stories of the anonymous slave girl in 2 Kings 5 and Mary, Joseph and Jesus’ escape to Egypt in Matthew 2:13-15.

This Summer sees the launch of a new module at Redcliffe for people working with or on behalf of vulnerable children (sometimes called ‘children-at-risk’).

The module ‘Vulnerable Children: Bible, Theology and Society’ will be running 16-20 July as part of our UK Summer School. It can be taken as a validated part of our MA in Contemporary Missiology programme or as an unvalidated standalone option for continuing professional development.
