Andy Stanley

'Don't settle for Christian'

In our ‘Going Deeper’ video this week,

Becoming a Christian is easy. It won't cost you anything. But Jesus never invited anyone to become a Christian. He invites us to follow, and during his talk Andy Stanley, pastor and author, encourages us … ‘Don’t settle for Christian’.

Andy explores the difference between ‘believing in’ Jesus and ‘following’ Him, and he encourages us to ask ourselves difficult questions like ‘Do we define being a Christian so that we can stay in our comfort zone?’ Only 30 minutes long you will be challenged by this talk and it could change how you live your life.

'What's so mazing about grace'

Philip Yancey

Not a new book ... but a timeless understanding of God's grace.

“Grace does not excuse wrong but treasures the wrongdoer. True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with it's insistence on getting close to evil and touching it with mercy and hope." Philip Yancey

Easy to read and full of great stories learn more about the extravagant grace of God and how the followers of Jesus are to lavish grace on the world.
