Justice: part 1. Looking at the issue of justice through the story of the woman at the well: a person who was not only part of a racially hated group, but socially excluded from her own community. Jesus steps across the radical, cultural and moral barriers of the day and meets her with compassion.
“Everything we need to reach the city is already in the house”. We need a radical heart of generosity, with every member of Kings playing their part in God’s big story.
We look at a passage of the Bible which is among the most abused regarding money, but also underpins the way our western society is structured.
In this talk we look at how to keep good relationships, be selfless, receive from God and refuse to criticise.
How to make room in our lives, learning to be generous with time, money and personal skills.
In this talk we look at the two wealthy men in Luke 18-19, and their different reactions as they encounter Jesus.
Can we look at our own lives and see where we have privilege? How can we use these to bless others? God gifted Solomon with wisdom, but things went wrong when he misunderstood this gift as being for himself.
Should we vote? Which way should we vote? What should our priority be when deciding, and when we disagree with one another, how can we do so in a way that honours Jesus?
How do we discern who deserves our help and how do we apply the Bible’s references to the poor in 21st Century Britain?
