he pattern will be:

  • January 2022: The Calling Podcast
    Episodes of a podcast devised and hosted by young people in the diocese, talking to a range of people about their sense of calling.

    Bishop Ruth will join us at Taunton Academy for worship on the theme of calling.
  • Monday 7 – Friday 11 February: Inspiration and experimentation
    A short video will be released each day, featuring people from across the diocese talking about their experience of calling in response to questions like ‘What does it feel like to be called?’ and ‘Do any stories of calling in the Bible inspire you?’.
    We hope that people will also reflect on their own answers to these questions.

    Online sessions will give people the chance to hear more about calling, discuss their reflections and celebrate how God calls us in so many ways and places.
