Is there a future for humanity?

Never has the view of humans made in the image of God been more necessary and more timely

The 20th century started by hailing the triumph of humanism, but ended with the recognition that ‘post-Auschwitz, post-Hiroshima and pre-Singularity’ humanity faces unprecedented challenges that call humanity itself into question. Never has the view of humans made in the image of God been more necessary and more timely.

Os Guinness is a well-regarded author and social critic. He is regularly invited to offer a Christian's perspective on social and political trends. He has a keen interest in the relevance of Christian thought in the public square.

Bad government is better than no government

We live in an age in which politics has become suddenly alarming and fascinating all at once.

With the election of Trump, the rise of One Nation, and the Brexit referendum in the UK, many people feel a growing sense of uncertainty and alarm. The extremes in politics seem to be becoming more powerful. We’ve lost the ability to disagree with one another; and there’s profound disagreement about the future shape of human societies. Instead of working out compromise, we now simply shout at, ban, boycott, shame, hound, and harass those with whom we disagree.

Headstart: #1 RELEASED

RELEASED: from Cultural Yardstick

Ron is an avid snowboarder and loves everything snow. Fun fact: Ron also loves to act and was cast as Snow Boy in the kids program at Bathurst Summer Mission. This was before he even touched a snowboard - I reckon God knew. Ron is also a regular at Headstart and is often seen rounding up the troops for dinner afterwards.

Night in a tweet:

“You are what you eat - embrace culture, but don’t be absorbed by it. Remember God has RELEASED us from the shackles of impossible cultural and societal expectations through his Son”.

Effective negotiation: Finding compromise without being compromised

Monday October 15th, 12.30pm to 1.30pm

Whether it's in the boardroom or the breakfast table, have you ever felt wedged between two parties? Have you ever wondered how you might negotiate a compromise?

Stephen Lam has negotiated over the breakfast table (with his two daughters) as well as across borders in his time as the Chief Secretary of Hong Kong, none more so than when sovereignty of Hong Kong was handed to China after years of British rule.

How can we negotiate a compromise without compromising ourselves?

Would you consider setting up an EPT in or near your workplace?

Information night
Thursday November 22nd, 6.00pm to 7.30pm

Would you consider setting up an EPT in or near your workplace?

An EPT*1 is a small group of Christians who meet fortnightly to encourage one-another to be active Christians in their workplaces. The group prays together, learns from each other and works together in sharing Jesus.

Come and see what's involved. How do you gather a group? How do you run the meetings? What are the keys to success? What are the pitfalls?
