Money Talks - Breaking the power of poverty: Disciplines for life - Nigel Savage

November 18th 2018. Breaking the Spirit of Poverty through Spiritual disciplines. Matthew 6. Much of the book of Proverbs!

Nigel challenged us in his sermon to ask whether we were cup half full or cup half empty people. The Spirit of Poverty is not about actual poverty but relative poverty, poverty of the heart. We can feel poor in time, energy, faith or money. How does Jesus address these issues in his teaching and lifestyle? Jesus once described himself as having nowhere to lay his head. Does he come across as in poverty to you? Download Discussion notes

Sustainable Family. Ephesians - Clare Thompson

November 18th 2018. Sustainable: Sustainable Family. (Ephesians 5 -6:9. Matthew 8-22, 15:3-7).

Family is an issue for all of us, whether family life is great, challenging, or largely absent from our current experience. The bible has a lot to say about families, healthy family life is seen as foundational to the health of wider society. The story of Israel is the story of families. God wants family to be a place where children can be safe to grow into all He has planned for them. In reality family life is often difficult and painful and the bible illustrates this all too starkly in the stories it tells. Download Discussion notes

Sustainable: Planet - David Mitchell

November 4th 2018. Sustainable: Sustainable Planet. (Genesis 2:15. Leviticus 25).

Sustainability is a 21st Century issue and a discipleship issue. We know more about the planet than ever at this time in history and have the best technology to manage it, yet the systems that make the planet a place where humans can thrive are themselves in danger. The problems of climate change and the impact of population growth, consumption and industrialisation affect the whole planet but particularly impact the poorest people in the world. How then should we live? Download Discussion notes
