Not Afraid : Week One

Not Afraid : Week One

July 7, 2020

We each live in a world punctuated by lots of change!
The effects of which are being felt by every single person I know, in sorts of ways and to varying levels.

I heard a respected commentator says this week that "people have switched in our nation from being fearful about a virus to simply being fearful for the future.”

That is what this series is all about addressing...Helping each of us to be Not Afraid.
You can live not afraid when you know that God's Got This!

Church 2.0 Week Four

Church 2.0 Week Four

June 30, 2020

God has been saying very clearly that part of our “new normal”, part of Church 2.0, is that it is time for a new wine skin.

The Church has been really good at talking, talking about our faith, the goodness of God.
Now is the time for people to see God move. That is going to make a major difference for us all!

God has been saying very clearly that part of our “new normal”, part of Church 2.0, is that it is time for a new wine skin.

Let's be people who sow faith over fear, prayer over posting and fellowship over function. All because we are devoted to something bigger than ourselves...

Church 2.0 Week Two

God has been saying very clearly that part of our “new normal”, part of Church 2.0, is that it is time for a new wine skin.

Today we drill down a little deeper if you like to the foundation of our ministry, the bedrock of this Church, to look at what we believe.

These 4 points to consider relate to what we believe.
One is foundational to Suze and my ministry.
One is a response to recent criticism and misunderstanding.
One is difficult for many to accept.
One is prophetic in nature.
We leave it to you to work out which one is which.

God has been saying very clearly that part of our “new normal”, part of Church 2.0, is that it is time for a new wine skin.

Maybe for you and me personally, we have been doing certain things for maybe a long time and wondering why it is not producing the spiritual results we used to get or what we were looking for?
This is our new wine skin season.

Forgotten Virtues : Courage

Forgotten Virtues : Courage

May 25, 2020

Virtues are traits or qualities that are looked at as good, even morally good...
We have found that it is good to remind ourselves what virtues we should value.
Maybe even return too?
Because our modern culture seems to somehow erode them away little by little...

Today we are rediscovering Courage

Mothers Day 2020 : Honour

Mothers Day 2020 : Honour

May 11, 2020

Romans 12:10 ESV
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honour.

Paul was writing this to a group of people, to a culture if you like. One where honour was something that was selectively given based of cultural expectations/norms.

I think this has huge parallels to our world today.
I see people picking and choosing when and how to honour based on bias, or mood, or the moment, political or religious leanings...

Paul states it pretty clear that we should honour.
And not just honour...he adds a challenge to it...try and outdo each other in showing honour.
