This is our monthly newsletter that highlights some of the things we want you to know about for the month ahead.
We lose integrity when we make decisions thinking no one is looking and that no one will find out. We think we will get away with things that if others knew, they would be shocked.
Angels, visions, unexpected meetings, dramatic turns. If angels only turned up once in the Bible it would be easy to overlook them. But they are everywhere!
How do we make sense of that today in a society that sees itself as far too sophisticated to believe this?
We believe that reading the Bible is one of the foundational ways to hear God speak to us. But how do we hear a word that we might find difficult to understand? How do we read well so we can hear well?
The psalmist believed that observing nature was a way of hearing the Lord who is speaking every day to any who have eyes to see. How do we see clearly so that we can hear well?
The promise of Jesus was that God would speak to his people because we are his friends. We would increasingly grow to recognise his voice.
Of course, the challenge is: do we want to hear? Are we prepared to listen? Are we ready to respond if we do hear his voice?
Our new series will look at some of the biblical approaches to recognising God’s voice, and what we can do to tune into it.
A young out-of-town couple in a whirl, an old couple, part of the furniture in the Temple, easily overlooked. And a baby.
Luke loves these sorts of people, because he knows that Jesus loves to spend time with them. And it’s the way the salvation story unfolds.
It did then, it still does now. As another uncertain new year begins for us.
