2nd March 2017
We are now more than halfway through our seven-week INVITED series, looking together at the important issue of diversity. It has been fantastic hearing lots of positive reports from people across the church about the Sunday teaching, the testimony videos, the daily devotionals reading through Acts and learning from the early church's experiences, and time spent in groups, sharing stories and discussing the material week by week.
It was a real privilege to have Joel Edwards speaking this last Sunday on the important topic of trust, and I'm really looking forward to us welcoming Owen Hylton on Sunday, 12th March. Owen is a former elder at King's and author of Crossing the Divide – A call to embrace diversity, which I highly recommend to you.
If you have missed any of the Sunday teaching or the group interviews, they're all available on our INVITED webpage. Each week we've also had members of the church sharing their experiences of diversity which have been enlightening and moving. This week there will be two contrasting stories of reconciliation and forgiveness – Paul's and Cindy's. These will go up online next week along with the previous ones that are already on the webpage.
Let's keep sharing our stories, stepping across the divides and meeting up with others from different backgrounds for meals/to chat. And I do hope you'll join us this Sunday – Phil Varley is speaking on the important topic of forgiveness and we'll be coming to God's table, breaking bread together at all meetings.
