When last . . .
Posted on the , in Thoughts for the Week, by Ashley Hardingham
. . . did you have a major change of heart? Perhaps it was about your view of someone, perhaps it was to do with a political view, or even your view of the Bible and the nature of God?
We have these changes of heart. They can be disturbing, as we have to let go of long-held and greatly-cherished thoughts. But they can also be exhilarating and life-giving as we feel that our eyes have been opened and we have moved on to a greater understanding and experience of God.
This Sunday morning we’ll consider a major shift in Paul’s understanding of Christian faith. For us this will raise the consequent challenge to review our understanding of faith in the light of what God is revealing to us.
In the evening we will look at one of the most contested passages in the New Testament and seek to draw out its meaning for us today.
