The Spirit-Shaped Life >> Self-Control
We started the service by releasing balloons, with the winner being whoever got theirs all the way to Morag at the other end of the hall first.
But the balloons showed a lack of self-control, and just flew all over the room!
Next, we headed outside for an experiment – what would happen when we added mints to bottles of cola?
The last bottle didn’t explode, as Neil had given these mints ‘self-control’, by wrapping them in cling film.
We then split into small groups, to discuss situations when we can lose control, and any ways we deal with these, displaying self-control.
Finally, Neil explored what the Bible has to say about self-control, highlighting this verse in 2 Timothy:

It’s interesting that self-control is not about being timid, but is in fact linked by Paul to power & love.
Do you have any reflections or thoughts about the service? We’d love to hear what you think, so please leave a comment below.
