book of the week
Jesus + Nothing = Everything by Ps Tullian Tchividjian is a fantastic book centered on the sufficiency of God’s grace in every aspect of life. For a performance oriented person like me, I found the writers biblical reflections liberating and overwhelming. Here’s a great quote from pg36, “Let me urge you to get unusually quiet and to simply ask yourself: Where exactly am I experiencing agitation, impatience, unease and anxiety? Whatever indications of restlessness you did discover, at whatever level, I believe the reason for its being there is this: we’re trying to find our rest in something smaller than Jesus.”

news of the week
Elephant Room Round 2 took place Thursday January 25 hosted by Ps James MacDonald of Harvest Bible Chapel. This is a must see event as it gathers high profile leaders across the Body of Christ from opposite ends of the spectrum and throws them into the theological and ministerial octagon and the fireworks begin.

Vision Night at Activate Church was the best we had in light years. Nearly 150 people turned up and the night had everything, inspiration, fun, food, humour, energy, momentum, Jesus, honour and of course… vision.
