We live in a time where hospitality, the twin brother of fellowship, has been neglected by the Church. We have neglected hospitality so much, we call fellowship - hospitality and believe them to be the same. Though these two may look the alike, their outworkings and implications a very different. If the Church is to truly become an influence in our ever-changing society, we must embrace both hospitality and fellowship; by being clear on who the two are and letting them grow to maturity in our communities of Faith.

If God wants people to know him, why wouldn't he make himself known more clearly? Surely a good God would not be so elusive? Lara Buchanan addresses this commonly asked question: "Why isn't God more obvious?" Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, this will be an opportunity to explore these issues together and consider some of the responses offered in the Christian faith.

Lara Buchanan will be looking at how Jesus interacts with all sorts of people and engages in the questions of his day. Doing a quick sweep of the gospels we will see the master apologist at work: defining the question (Matt 22), exposing motives (Luke 20), questioning the questioner (Luke 10 & 18), and ultimately drawing to people to himself. This Sunday is all about learning how to emphasize with and effectively respond to the questions of our time.

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.

Schemes, Beauty Pageants, Politics, Genocide, Sex & Alcohol... The Old Testament book of Esther has it all. As a matter of fact it reads like a Game of Thrones style soap opera, full of morally questionable figures. Even the so called 'good guys' aren't very kosher (Pun intended)! Yet through the mess and without being mentioned - the silent hand of God is at work. Not through plagues or sea openings, but in the everyday stuff.

Stel jouself voor jy kom by die werk en jou werkgewer vertel hy het reeds jou werk vir die maand gedoen en jou salaris op dei 1ste van die maand inbetaal. Stel jouself voor die president van die land slaap op straat sodat iemand sonder 'n huis in sy bed kan slaap. Verbeel jou die koningin van England moet wagstaan by die hek sodat haar wagte veilig kan slaap in Buckingham Palace. Wat kan ons leer by Jesus van leierskap?
