Posted by Amy on May 25, 2017

Together

Last week Dan helped us to see the serious problems with a type of teaching that is often called ‘the prosperity gospel.’

Lots of us will have friends who go to that kind of church. A question we get asked a lot is ‘So what should I say?’ or ‘How can I talk to them about this?’

Great question!

The instinct to talk to someone about their relationship with God, and their church, is a good one. Good friends care about their friends’ sp Continue reading…

Boredom

Posted by Sunday Evening Team on May 23, 2017

Bored...

Bored of London, bored of life? This week Sarah, helps us consider boredom...

“Eugh Mondays.” “Eugh work.” “Eugh life.” This is the bleary-eyed Monday morning mantra that my flatmates and I struggle to repress as we prepare to face another week of early starts, commutes, emails, phone calls, meetings, performance reviews, chores, life admin, bible studies and social events.

Stress

Posted by Sunday Evening Team on May 10, 2017

Dark Look

As part of our mini series considering some thought-life issues, and how to approach them as Christians, Emma helps us consider stress.

I have no doubt that most of us have felt stress at some point in their life, in fact, let’s be honest, probably in the last week. It could be related to work, family, friendships, church, or even - my personal favourite - be totally self-induced! Whatever the cause, it’s there and it’s real and it Continue reading…
