Why can’t I live the way I want to live?

March 16, 2018

Why can't I be free to live as I see fit, as long as I don't harm anyone?

"It's time to see what I can do,
to test the limits and break through.
No right, no wrong, no rules for me,
I'm free."
- Elsa from Frozen.

We continually push the envelope and redefine society to match our cravings to be free, but is it good for a person to have freedom to do whatever he or she wants? And how does God fit into the picture?

Three Theories of Everything

February 21, 2018

By Guest Speaker Ellis Potter of L'Abri, Switzerland.

What is reality? What is the meaning of human life? Why do we suffer? Who am I? This talk explores 3 major worldviews that propose radically different answers to these eternal questions. These 3 worldviews, and the unique hope that each offers to humanity, have profoundly different consequences for how we see reality and our place in it.

Ellis H. Potter has explored various worldviews (religious and non-religious) at close range. He is a former Buddhist monk, and now Christian minister resident in Switzerland. He is a well-travelled international speaker and the author of "3 Theories of Everything" and "How do you know that?"

Hannah and the Importance of Private Prayer

August 12, 2017

Hannah is a relatively unknown Old Testament figure we encounter in the early chapters of 1 Samuel. Her experience of agony and desperation, however is well known to anyone who's lived long enough in a broken world. It is because of this shared experience and Hannah's approach to it, that us moderns can learn a great deal from this woman.

This talk was given by Johan Erasmus.

“The Shack” - The Problem of Evil

June 7, 2017

"The Shack" - and the Problem of Evil." By Dr. Roedolf Botha

Human suffering still carries some of the deepest and most frequently asked questions today: Is there a benevolent God? Does he really care about us? How can a loving God allow so much human affliction? A few years ago a very controversial book, The Shack, tried to address some of these questions. The book had also recently been translated into a movie. Tonight we are going to explore some of the ideas in it in trying to answer some of life's most fundamental questions.

I consume, therefore I am

March 20, 2017

One of the characteristics of South African Christians influenced by the West is our consumer spirituality. "I consume therefore I am" had become the principle of our day, whether we speak of commodities, entertainment or even knowledge. Without realizing it we have paid dearly for it.
