January 2014 Newsletter

Happy New Year! We are incredibly excited to see what 2014 will bring for us all. We believe Neil Gaiman said it best:

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life."

Our latest sermon is on the subject of temperance, or finding balance and self-control. Give it a read and take some time to think about it, but don't get too carried away.

Is there anything about a belief in God that prevents one from believing in extra-terrestrials? For some, these two are totally incompatible, but for others, the possibility is a testament to the scope of God's power.
