Flesh 8: God at Work?

Flesh 7: The Curse of Work

Flesh 7: The Curse of Work

We’re continuing a series this morning in which we’ve been looking at the “incarnation” – which is a big word for a deceptively simple concept, that God put on skin and became one of us. And if he did that, what does that mean for us as Jesus followers today?

We’re continuing our series taking a fresh look at what God meant – in the context of Jesus’ birth and life – when he used the phrase “God with us”, and in particular what it means for us today as we seek to follow Christ and to bring his love to the community we live [ more… ]
