Romans An introduction to the book of Romans, recorded at our 2018 Wednesday night Growth Groups
1 Thessalonians 5:12-28 Community is a buzz-word for our society, and yet our communities seem to be increasingly fragmented – in politics, on social media, through inequality. How can a community grow in love, truth, forgiveness and hope? Listen in as we hear Paul’s answer to the Thessalonians.
John 14:6 For many people their biggest problem with Christianity can be summed up in one word: ‘exclusivity’ – the claim that Jesus is the only way to God. How could he make such a claim? Was he right? And how can anyone believe that in our multi-religious society?
1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 Grief is an all too real emotion and yet society would rather just ignore the topic. Listen in as Paul unpacks how the return of Jesus teaches us to grieve, but not as those who have no hope.
John 8:12 Sometimes people talk about ‘feeling like a mushroom’ in the workplace. Like a mushroom, you’re kept in the dark and once in a while you have some manure thrown over you! It can feel like that in life. But Jesus is the light of the world. If we follow him we will not walk in darkness.
1 Thessalonians 4:1-8 Many take issue with the Bible’s sexual morality – either ignoring it completely or picking and choosing the bits they like. But increasingly people realise society’s sexual morality don’t live up to its billing. Listen in as Paul gives compelling reasons to trust God’s words.
John 10:11Many people today want nothing to do with God because of the corruption of church leaders for whom religion is just a cloak for lust and greed. But God is nothing like such bad shepherds. In Jesus God came as the good shepherd to lay down his life for the sheep.
Luke 9:37-50 Everyone’s trying to make a success of their lives, whether through their career, their relationships, their family, their reputation. William Carey said: ‘It’s not failure I fear, but succeeding at things that don’t really matter’. Listen in as Jesus talks about true success and why it can often feel like failure.
1 Thessalonians 5:12-28 Community is a buzz word for our society, and yet our communities seem to be increasingly fragmented – in politics, on social media, through inequality. How can a community grow in love, truth, forgiveness and hope? Listen in as we hear Paul’s answer to the Thessalonians.
2 Peter 1:16-21 ‘Fake news’ seems to be everywhere these days. How do we know what to believe? And especially, how can we believe in a book that was written so long ago in different languages by unknown people? Take a whistle-stop tour through the many reasons why we can and must trust the Bible.
