Overcoming the fear of group prayer

Overcoming the fear of group prayer

We know that prayer is an important part of our lives as Christians. We also know that it doesn’t necessarily come easily, especially when we talk about praying in a group.

Consumer Church

Consumer Church

Many have said that we now live in a consumeristic culture; that is, a culture where the consumers’ needs/desires/preferences dictate everything. In the business world people often say ‘the customer is king’ –  in other words, what the customer wants is more important than anything else.

Philippians - Finding Joy

Philippians – Finding Joy

What better way to start 2018 than studying a letter all about joy! Paul is writing from a prison; is being slandered by those outside the prison; is addressing a church struggling with unity with a few of its own hostile enemies; and he writes them a letter which is all about joy!
