Luke 10:1–9 (Listen)

10:1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’ And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you. And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick in it and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’


About The Archdeacon of Dorchester: : Judy French was appointed Archdeacon of Dorchester in 2014 having been Rector of St Mary’s Charlbury and All Saints, Shorthampton,where she has been in post for 17 years. Judy had the privilege of being part of a historic moment when she was one of the youngest of 37 women who were among the first to be ordained priest in the Church of England in Coventry Cathedral in 1994. “It was 20 years ago and it was the beginning of something exciting for the whole Church." Her role will bring back her deacon’s experience of servanthood. “It’s about serving our churches, clergy and people, and working with diocesan staff, to help them with the challenges of church life and mission today,” said Judy,who has family in Singapore, Washington DC and New Zealand, supportive parents and some good friends.
