A Celebration of Biblical Discipleship in Public Life

 

Most of us have been profoundly moved by the public outpouring of mourning for our Queen and the dignity of her funeral. It certainly signifies the passing of one era and the beginning of another. As much as we love the clear message about Jesus that the Queen consistently gave, the powerful words of Justin Welby at her funeral, and the general conversation about an afterlife in which loved ones may be reunited, we know that once life returns to some semblance of normality, the window to talk about spiritual things will slowly close and that the gospel will once again have to fight to be heard.
 
So let’s make the most of the current opportunity and openness, and also be ready to live distinctively and winsomely in the world in which God has placed us and into which he sends us. Let’s be ready to tell our own ‘better story’, and to be unafraid to talk about our faith, just as the Queen was unafraid to talk about hers. 
 
Mark Greene, who co-authored the pictorial book ‘The Servant Queen and the King She Serves’, will be our guest speaker at our online leaders morning on 9th Nov. I’m very excited to have his bespoke input to our discussion on what it means to be a disciple and disciple-maker in the workplace. I believe his input will help equip both church leaders and those in the workplace. Please do bring your leadership team and anyone from the workplace who is available and wants to learn. 
 
Bringing kingdom values, godly servant leadership, moments of fun, creative solutions, and good news stories of hope to our workplaces will impact them and for many will bring light into dark places. We are called to be the light of the world, just as Jesus was. Let’s learn to be light in our places of work.

As the world celebrates Her Majesty’s extraordinary achievements it is timely to note that Mark Greene has written several books about her faith. 
 'A Life of Grace' can be ordered from Hope Together, although The Servant Queen is not currently available. 

A Life Of Grace

'The Queen's Way'  both enriches our appreciation of the Queen and challenges us by her example. Focusing on her Christmas addresses across her reign – because she wrote them herself – Mark’s close analysis offers new insights into the Queen’s concerns and the particular character of her Christian faith. This is available on-line:

Are You Hearing God Calling?

What is the Calling Lab? A course for those who believe that following Jesus is a call to be on a mission.

  • A coached, directive experience of listening to God about your calling.
  • A lab to learn how your experiences, your personality & your gifting fits in to your callng.
  • A group experience of prayer, input & feedback as you process your next steps
  • A confidence builder in discovering your purpose.

Start date is 13th October and the following Thursdays for 5 weeks.

What do people have to say?
"I'd highly recommend the Calling Lab to anyone who wants to take the next step in God's calling on their lives. It's a great opportunity to spend time listening to God with others, exploring your gifts and talents and joining in with what God is already doing in the place where you serve." Jennie

Would you be willing to invite anyone in your network for whom you feel this could be the right time? Also, would you be able to share on any platforms you have where there are potential missionary Christians who could benefit from this course? This would help to get the word out!

Time to Register Your Street..

As Christians, we believe that God is good and all good things come from Him. However, for many people the week of Halloween is not associated with things that are good - some people in our neighbourhoods are scared to open their doors; shops and homes are decorated with frightening images, and things that are evil are wrongly portrayed as ‘good.’
To get involved all you need to do is to decorate one (or more!) windows of your house, flat or workplace, and then leave the lights on from 5.30 to 9.00pm, so people can see your fantastic displays.  Your design can be anything you like, but please include one or more of the words LIGHT, LOVE or HOPE somewhere in it.
Monday 24th - Monday 31st October 2022
