Confidence, everyone agrees it is important but does what you put your confidence in matter? Can you gain and maintain confidence through difficulties setbacks, or will it be lost? In this series at Bible Shots we are considering how the message of the Bible gives a source of confidence that sustains, directs and nurtures hope even in the face of suffering. Join us as Kanishka Raffel unpacks Romans 8, part of the Bible that has been described as an 'ocean of assurance' in which to swim.
Kanishka Raffel was born in London to Sri Lankan parents and was raised as a Buddhist. While studying law at Sydney University a friend gave him a copy of The Gospel according to John and he subsequently became a Christian. Prior to becoming Dean in 2016, Kanishka served as Rector of St Matthew’s in Perth. He is married to Cailey and they have two daughters. He loves curry, cricket and having gelato at the beach with his family but knows no pleasure so great as sharing the news about Jesus with people who have no idea who Jesus is or how much he loves them.
