Faithfulness 02

From the Revd Cecil White...

There are times when we struggle to articulate our faith, and we each have 'frontlines' where we engage with the life of the world. These can seem normal or routine locations, i.e., the post office, the supermarket, the coffee shop, the family gathering, and the like. But these are the locations (or Frontlines) where we most encounter non-Christians.

In order to explore this theme of living fruitful lives for Christ, I am starting groups in two venues for the churches to meet in order to learn from one another about 'Fruitfulness on the Frontline'. It has been devised by Mark Greene of the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity.

The groups will involve the viewing of a video, reading scripture, reflecting, and learning from each other. I have copies of all the relevant materials, so you don't have to bring anything but yourself! And don't worry, as there will be no need to climb a soapbox — it's simply a way of discovering how we can be instrumental in demonstrating the love of God.

  • Session 1: Thursday 17th October, 7.30pm at Epping United Reformed Church with 5 sessions to follow.

OR

  • Session 1: Friday 18th October, 10.30am at North Weald Methodist Church with 5 sessions to follow.

Do come along and learn from your fellow Christians. You'll be very welcome.
