‘The ladder rolls down to meet you right where you are’: Report on Jonathan’s sermon this morning.

This morning, Jonathan preached on Genesis 28:10-17 – the famous story of Jacob’s dream of a ladder stretching between heaven and earth. He began with a bit of context. The twin sons of Isaac and Rebekah had had a fraught relationship ever since Jacob emerged clutching the heel of his brother Esau. Jacob was Rebekah’s favourite son, and she plotted to win for Jacob the entitlements due to Esau as the first-born. First Jacob took advantage of

What did I need to do to surrender
