Good news for the Self-confessed Commitment-phobe

Posted by Amy on October 27, 2016

An exiting Date

"We need to have the relationship chat. Look, we’re just not on the same page. I’m committed to this relationship. It just doesn’t seem that you’re interested. Is that true?”

What do you do when your relationship with Jesus feels like hard work?

Posted by Peter on October 18, 2016

What is a Gospel, and what are the Gospel authors trying to do? Can you give us some examples of how the Gospels train us?
