As we plunge into 2016 many of us will wonder how the new year will go.
What will happen? Will it be a good or a difficult year? Will Boro get
promoted to the Premier League, will England get past the group stages
at the Euros? !
Hopefully we can look forward to a great deal of happiness – to a rich
experience of life, enjoying this beautiful world and its music, literature,
art and drama. Perhaps we can look forward to loving relationships with
family and friends. Maybe the new year will bring us success in
education, work, relationships, hobbies and the like. !
Possibly the new year will be a time when we experience a greater
understanding of God. If we haven’t given God much thought, perhaps
we’ll start to do so. If we don’t attend church, perhaps we’ll begin to. If we
do attend church, perhaps we’ll increase our commitment. Perhaps we
will get stuck into His Word more? !
However, one of the best ways of get to know God better is by doing the
Christianity Explored course. Christianity Explored is an informal 7-week
course for people who’d like to investigate Christianity, or just brush up on
the basics. Looking at Mark’s gospel, it explores who Jesus is, why he
came, and what it means to follow him. !
Christianity Explored gives time and space to think about the big
questions of life and is ideal as a way of introducing people to Jesus, or
as a refresher course for you. Why not pray for someone you know, and
pray for an opportunity to invite them along. Not only do you find out
about Christianity, theres also free food!
