Open House Bonfire - The Conclusion

So having had Ben Pocock preach brilliantly on us building an "open house", and then last week Liam Parker doing an outstanding job of stoking the bonfire, it falls to me this Sunday to bring it all together!

I'm going to take a look at how we deal with the tension of creating an environment where we're both aware of seekers in our midst and we eagerly desiring spiritual gifts, and whether it's even right to try and achieve both of those things at the same time.

We're going to do that looking at one of the most famous passages in the Bible, which when normally used is taken totally out of context. I'll also totally disagree with Liam's interpretation of one of the Bible passages he used last week! If you enjoy controversy this could be the week for you :) Seriously though these are important issues for us to wrestle with as we define the culture we want in our community.

Simon.

Ps - just to be clear Liam is a great friend and I thought he did a brilliant job last Sunday. He just isn't right about everything :)
