Our world is constantly changing and always offering up fresh challenges. Despite this, many of life's most significant challenges are timeless. Issue such as, "How do we handle conflict? What does it mean to live with integrity? How should we view money and possessions?" are questions that face every generation. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus addressed many of the issues that affect us all. His teaching and insights often flew in the face of culture and the popular opinion of his day. In this series we'll visit Jesus' words afresh, as we consider how we face life's biggest challenges.
Life in the Spirit - "God is spirit", said Jesus, "and his worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth." (John 4:24). During this next season of church life, we're going to be exploring the meaning of God as Spirit. What does this tell us about our Creator, and what does it tell us about ourselves? How can we relate to such a God? The Apostle Paul told the early church to "walk by the Spirit", to "keep in step with the Spirit", and that consequently, each would bear the "fruit of the Spirit" - fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. We want to experience together life in the Spirit, by which we discover our God-given gifts and passions, which glorify Him and build his church. We hope that together we can tune into the presence of the Spirit who counsels, guides and leads us in life everlasting.
