Making Partner: 2 of 7: Making Partner without losing it all

Philippians 1:12-26 The motto of the wharf could be summed up in 4 short words- Make Gain. Avoid Loss. But what does it really mean to Gain? How do we define Loss? How can Paul, the Christian leader, believe that he’s gained, even when- facing imprisonment and death- it looks like he’s lost? Listen in as Jesus redefines our understanding of gain.

What’s the best use of my time?

Isaiah 49:8-13 We have many competing demands on our time. In his previous talk, Richard urged us to prioritise carefully and say ‘no’ to good things for the sake of the best. But what are the best ways to use our time? What must we prioritise? Listen in as Isaiah shows us how God would have us live.

Richard Borgonon – The Word 121

John 1:1-18 Topping the list of 2,000 people in the recently published study “Who Is Bigger?” Jesus Christ continues to inspire, intrigue and infuriate people across the world. The accounts of his life, however, are still relatively unknown and unread by a large number of people in the UK. So how do we help people find out more about Jesus’ life, teaching and his impact on our lives?

Richard Borgonon, along with William Taylor of St Helen’s Bishopsgate, have co-written The Word 1-2-1, a set of user-friendly notes which help people engage with who Jesus is as they read John’s gospel.

In this recording, Richard shares the reasons why he invites friends to read a gospel with him and how he does this in the workplace. It’s a great encouragement to make the most of this opportunity with our colleagues and friends.

Making Partner: 1 of 7: Making Partner and knowing what is the best

Philippians 1:1-11 There are so many things competing for our time- career, friends, family, smartphones and hobbies to name but a few. It easy to say ‘Don’t let the good be the enemy of the best’ but it’s much harder to do. Where should Jesus fit in our already hectic lives? Is ‘making partner’ with Christ even a good thing, let alone the best thing? Listen in as Paul persuades the Philippian Christians there is no better thing to do with our lives.
