Open Me is our weekly devotional for Youth Workers. It comes in two parts - a fresh article published every week to inspire and challenge, and a gift which will arrive when you least expect it, by post, text, email or some other way, always unpredictable but always relevant to the article and the challenge it sets. Each Open Me season is six weeks long and focusses on one characteristic of Jesus through articles by six different writers.

This is Season 8: Disruptive and it kicked off in November 2019. We explored how the stories that Jesus told got him killed. How did the parables we heard in Sunday School prove such a threat to individuals, institutions and power structures, that Jesus had to go? And what does that means for us as his followers today?
