Headstart: Do you want to start over? #5 R&R

RESET: R&R

Bernadette is in marketing and a natural whiz. She is happy, bubbly and a keen young worker who would be up at wee hours in the morning just to have a cuppa with a crazy young worker’s program manager. Find out below what she thought of resetting R+R.

For our final week of Headstart Term 3, we tackled the age old topic of R+R. Don’t we all dream of a little more relaxation time?!

Like the considerate person he is, Mark kicked off the night’s talk by sharing photos and stories of his recent holidays to a group of weary young workers. Singapore looked so fun!

Words to live by (July - August)
What proverbs do you lean on to navigate the challenges of life? Perhaps "You get what you pay for" possibly "No pain, no gain" or what about "Whatever turns you on." ? Proverbs are short and pithy sayings that distil cultural wisdom and claim to give guidance on how to live life well and they are everywhere. In these talks we will take a closer look at the Bible's book Proverbs and think about the wisdom it offers and how it is foundational for life today.

Bible Shots 3rd quarter 2018 (Jul-Sept)

Words to live by / The Jesus you never knew

The organisers of Bible Shots think that the Bible has something important to say to us, so we set aside time during the week to think seriously about what is written there. You don’t need to hold to any particular belief system to attend or have any prior experience with the Bible, all you need is a willingness to consider what the Bible says.

There are two mini series at Bible Shots this quarter.

Find the most precious jewel

The secret of contentment
Thursday August 2nd, 7.30am to 8.20am

The 10th commandment says 'Do not covet'. This seems like a quaint, old-fashioned word. What does it mean and who covets anyway?

However, when you understand what coveting is (and the modern word for it), you'll also understand how much damage it does in our world. It explains why no matter how wealthy our society gets, it's never enough. It explains why as individuals trying to budget, we constantly wonder "why is there so much month left at the end of the money?"

And as usual, Jesus has a whole new perspective on possessions and contentment.

Tell the truth

It really works
Thursday July 26th, 7.30am to 8.20am

If you've ever been lied to, you'll know that nothing destroys a relationship quicker than a lie. Lies are corrosive and damage not just the victim but also the one who tells the lie.

What does Jesus say about how we should speak to one another and why is it so important?

Our speaker this week is Al Stewart.

The night in a tweet

Our value comes from God. This value given to us - frees us from chasing value from the world and we are to have an attitude of gratitude whether we receive more or less.
