From the President's Desk

I came across a piece about the Men of Issachar. The following are extracts from it: 

In the first book of Chronicles, we read these words: “From the tribe of Issachar, there were 200 leaders...All these men understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take” (1 Chron 12:32). 

Knowing the signs of the times, and how then to live, has to be the most pressing challenge facing any life. Here is the full extent of the Issachar question: What is:

...the nature of the world in which we are living?                              

...the challenge(s) of our generation?

...the current status of the epic struggle between good and evil?

...the direction the culture in which we live is headed?

...the nature of the world’s great crises at the present time?

And then from that, a second question: How should I then live? How do I live a life of meaning, consequence, impact and influence for the cause of Christ? And how should the church take its place in the vanguard of cultural engagement and missional force? #God is our Adventure. Every blessing.

Can you help?

We have a number of rotas for various things that occur on a Sunday morning, such as: Tea/Coffee, counting of money, greeting and door stewarding, operation of the computer and sound system. Please contact Linda Laughlin or Stephen Orr if you would be willing to help with any of these aspects; more helpers will reduce the frequency for those on the rota. Support and training will be provided as required.
