So this Sunday . . .
Posted on the , in Thoughts for the Week, by Ashley Hardingham
. . . we complete our run of three outside speakers at ABC. Earlier this week I joked with Mat (one ‘T’) Walls from the Message Trust that the previous two weeks have been the warm-up, for his coming; and perhaps in a strange way they were.
Two weeks ago John McGinley gave a challenging introduction to the weekend away when he explained that we shouldn’t have to say ‘Mission and Discipleship’ as discipleship fundamentally involves mission. Then last week Andy Worthington shared some extraordinary stories of the faith and commitment of Christian believers under persecution today.
So I hope that to some extent we are ready to consider our response to what we have heard. That we live out our discipleship with as much courage and faith as we have heard and tell our story; sharing faith with others.
