The Great News in a Nutshell

This Sunday we tried to put into words the great message, the Gospel we have to offer.

We decided upon:

  • There is a God who loves us.
  • We have all gone off-course; our way, not God’s.
  • We couldn’t save ourselves, so God took the initiative in Jesus’ death and resurrection.
  • We choose a better way, God’s way not ours, because we are forgiven.

Is there anything we’ve missed out?  Do you think there is anything here, even something that is true, that is not an essential part of the message?

Word or Spirit?

Today Lynn asked whether we want to derive all we believe, teach and do from the Bible, or learn to hear and obey the voice of the Spirit speaking to us individually and collectively?

What do you think?

Listen or Speak?

Today Colin asked whether we want to be kind and generous in the way we think and speak about others whether they agree or disagree with us, or should we clearly communicate what we believe and why we believe it?
