Servanthood and taking responsibility begins in our home. Using a funny story from her youth and from what the Bible says, Rachel shows us why leading well and by example in the home is foundational. Whether you have a family living with you or you live alone, what does it look like to lead well in the home? Listen in as Rachel gives us some practical Biblical guidance.
Dave Belfield kicks off a brand new series called “House and Home” with his talk about “Me, Myself and I”.
There’s a battle between the old nature and the new. How do we deal with this? Dave uncovers the two sides – and shows us how to live well in the new nature with good self-leadership.
Athalia begins her talk by asking “Where’s your confidence at?”
Sometimes we put our confidence in our circumstances instead of the One who has called us. So Athalia brings us the challenge, the encouragement and the solution to be able to fulfil our own calling and use our own voice with confidence.
Jonathan takes Buzz Lightyear’s famous saying, “To infinity and beyond”, and why he couldn’t make the leap across the gap.
Sometimes we can construct an identity for ourselves – just like Buzz did, based on the identity he’d constructed himself rather than the one he’d been given by his owner who loved him. Jonathan compares this with Jesus who knew exactly who He was – and how that bridges the gap between us and God.
In the second of the ‘TCC at the Movies’ season, we have two speakers:
Kofi Affram talks about a walled garden in “Welcome to The Jungle”. If we turn church into a walled garden or a safe haven, when we step out into the jungle we can be overcome. Kofi helps us to see that to survive and live well, it’s important to take our life lessons from church into the jungle.
Andy Taylor bases his talk on a well-known song from ‘Jungle Book, and asks, “I wanna be Like Who?”. It’s good to be inspired by other people, but let’s not miss the important bit: God made us who we are. Recognising that gives us a fulfilled life.
In the first of a series of “TCC at The Movies”, Hannah Tarbuck compares how movie Superheroes are always prepared – but usually real-life heroes are unprepared. Hannah looks at The Incredibles and her own story of an unplanned visit to a laundrette to show us how our lack of preparation can help others prepare well for success in life.
If we can’t find contentment, maybe we should consider where we’re looking for it. Dave Belfield concludes the ‘Holy Discontent’ series with a clear message that when we try to fill what only God can fill, it leads to greater discontentment. Are we holy discontent or wholly discontent? Listen in as Dave brings the solution to this problem.
Holy discontentment is a gift. So what now? Where do we go from here with it? How do we use it? Often when we want to change something, we get stuck. So, looking at what Abraham & Sarah and Moses did, and taking a powerful story from her teaching career, Chevon gives us the road map.
