Last Week's Talk:
Prayer (Acts 4:23-31) - Available Online
We are often taught that to pray you need to put your hands together and close your eyes. However, the Bible does not teach this. Rather, as we pray, we need to open our eyes to the God we are praying to, to his people, his character, his ways and his mission. This is how we grow in prayer.
Survey on 'Share'
One of the amazing claims of the Christian faith is that God, the creator of the universe, speaks to us mere human beings. The focus of that communication is of course Jesus, "the Word who became flesh" (John 1:14), but the main means we hear God's word is through the Bible - the inspired words of God.
As Christians we want to share these wonderful words with one another helping each other to understand what God is saying and applying them to every aspect of our lives today. This is the heart of what being a Christian disciple is all about and what it means for the "the message of Christ to dwell richly among us" (Colossians 3:16).
We also want to share the good news about Jesus with others outside the church, that they can come to know the joy and life that is found in following him.
This survey is a chance to find out how lockdown has effected our relationship to the Bible as Christians at St. Luke's.
