In Biblical times "the year of the Lord's favor" - the "year of jubilee" - was a time when prisoners were to be set free, debts forgiven, and the poor given a share of the resources (Lev. 25). Jubilee, meant to take place every fiftieth year, was a year marked by justice and mercy - themes at the heart of God's good news as shared by the Old Testament prophets and then Jesus (Luke 4).
We seek ways to live out the Biblical vision of " jubilee ", trusting that God will bless our attempts to live as followers of Jesus Christ.
That search takes us into all kinds of situations and connects us with people from all over the world. As we see for ourselves the power of God's love in one situation after another, we are filled with celebration.
