Living in Love and Faith

How do questions about identity, sexuality, relationships and marriage fit within the bigger picture of the good news of Jesus Christ? What does it mean to live in love and faith together as a Church?

Christians in Devon are being invited to “listen and learn together” after the Church of England published its new Living in Love and Faith resources looking at these questions.

They include a book, study guides, podcasts and a powerful series of real-life personal story films.

The resources, which draw together the Bible, theology, science and history are part of a new process of engagement and learning on sensitive issues which go to the heart of people’s lives and loves.

The Bishop of Crediton, the Right Reverend Jackie Searle, is the Diocese of Exeter advocate for the Living in Love and Faith process.

“The resources explore questions that go to the heart of our human identity, and most crucially, to people’s lived experiences. There are those in the Church of England who would like to see change in the areas of sexuality and relationships, those who do not wish for such a change, and many who simply do not know. Living in Love and Faith is an invitation to deep listening to one another and to God, and a wonderful opportunity to learn together, in humility and grace. I wholeheartedly commend Living in Love and Faith as an excellent resource.”
