The “New Normal” may well not be normal at all. So we need to change, to know your place means to change because everything has changed. Church, work, homelife - how are you going to fit in and work it out post Covid-19? Mark and Pete have the answers.
We look at John chapter 3 and its enduring importance in bringing people out of a path to destruction into ultimate salvation. “If we were asked to read to a dying man who did not know the gospel, we should probably select this chapter as the most suitable one for such an occasion; and what is good for dying men is good for us all, for that is what we are; and how soon we may be actually at the gates of death, none of us can tell.” (Spurgeon)
If there is one thing everyone living through the Covid-19 emergency agrees, it is that it is unprecedented. Everyone is surely right about that. But what follows in politics, economics and social behaviour from that recognition? Will President Trump still be president by the end of the year, or will he lose by a landslide in November.? What will happen over the next six months, will it be more shocking than the first half of 2020? Mark and Pete have the answers, and some of them may surprise you.
Peter Cooper talks with Alan Riley about the first chapter of John's Gospel, starting at the very beginning. John's Gospel is a highpoint of theological writing with deep truths embedded within it. What or who is God's word and how does God's word affect us. Pete and Alan argue that God's word bring about both creation and new creation in a way that changes everything.
