Base camps are places to stop and to re-assess the journey. Sometimes we create these Base Camps for ourselves and sometimes we find ourselves compelled to stop and to do some re-thinking. Jesus told many little stories about people’s everyday lives where they found themselves needing to stop, think and make a decision about their next step. These stories are called ‘parables” and have something to say to each one of us, wherever we are
