"Beauty of life causes strangers to join our ranks. We don't just talk about great things - we live them" (Christian, AD 250)
Historians say the key ingredient to the explosive growth of the church after Jesus' death and resurrection was the distinctive lives of believers. 'The beautiful life' they lived bore a powerful and attractive witness to the difference the Christian faith makes for good.
How might this re-shape the spread of the Gospel in our day, especially in our workplaces? What might 'living such good lives' among our colleagues look like? How do we not only declare the Gospel with our lips, but also display it with our lives?
Join us as we consider these questions at our Life @ Work conference. Discover the power of an attractive life in the workplace. Discover how we might be DISTINCTIVE.
