My Prayer For You

Pastor’s Prayer for 27 January 2019

St Clement of Rome, 1st century-101 AD

Giving Blood

If the church wishes to converse effectively with a culture, it must learn the culture’s language. Today, shifts in technology mean that language is increasingly one of symbols and metaphors, stories and images―not words.
