No, we are not talking about downhill slalom, figure skating or bobsledding. No special equipment required! Just come and participate.
Beginning in December, our pastor, John Edmonds, is holding a series of training sessions to help us engage with others about our Christian faith.
Christianity not only makes far more sense than other worldviews, but it is also the answer to the human quest whether we know it or not. However, you and I may have difficulties articulating that. Why not come to these sessions and begin see how it all fits together and be more “prepared to make a defence to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” (1 Peter 3:15)
Here’s the program (all on Saturdays, 9-10 am):
Four sessions based on a resource called Toolkit (each person who comes will get a free copy of the toolkit booklet).
