Is this what it means to follow Jesus? If that’s the case then Phil and Julie Sparrow have certainly missed the boat. I discovered last night that Phil, who currently serves as a Christian aid worker in Afghanistan is back in town, so I quickly emailed him to see if he might be able to […]

What Do YOU Think?

I used this quote from Mike Frost on Sunday. I think it captures the essence of what I was trying to say beautifully/ “Don’t think church, think mission!” I don’t know how many times I have used that phrase with my students. Stop thinking conventionally about how to do church, as if there is some […]

This Sunday – A Miserable Spirituality?

Or not… “Spirituality wrongly understood or pursued is a major source of human misery and rebelling against God.” So says Dallas Willard, a bloke who knows a bit about this stuff. This Sunday we begin to look at some of the distinctives we believe God wants us to pursue as QBC and the first is […]

A Prayer

Today at our gathering Cate used this prayer. It is a combination of prayers from various sources and its easy enough to ‘read’ silently, but just try saying it aloud as we did today… There are some powerful and confronting statements in there.

I Said Amen by Adrian Plass

Here’s the poem we finished with in our gathering today… When I became a Christian, I said, Lord, now fill me in. Tell me what I’ll suffer in this world of shame and sin. He said, Your body may be killed and left to rot and stink. Do you still want to follow me? I […]

“Eat My Flesh and Drink My Blood”

So what’s that all about?! Jesus says some pretty weird stuff in John ch 6 and we’ll be exploring that on Sunday when we return to our teaching series in the Gospel of John. If you are able to read the chapter before coming then that would be great as its a long one and […]
