How is it going with the Blessing Challenge I set last week? I would love to hear what God is doing as you take on this rhythm. It always takes a bit of time to learn a new practice so I think it would be good to keep going with this challenge. Here is a reminder of what […]
We’re going to keep going deeper with our first rhythm, generous blessing. This week I want us to try an experiment together that involves a challenge to declare and demonstrate blessing. Are you up for that? Good. First of all, picture the network of relationships you are part of: friends, family members, colleagues and neighbours. Try and think […]
I wrote last week about our first rhythm: Generous Blessing. Generosity is a natural response to God’s goodness to us, and an effective way of spreading good news!

In our Central Gatherings this term we are exploring some of the One Another statements from the New Testament and asking what we can learn from them as foundations for building community. Share Hospitality with One Another In this talk Andy Wilson and Liz Shores explore the idea of hospitality, of being welcomed by God […]
