This story is one worth watching – equal parts inspiring and devastating.
What are the principles here that might help generate hope in your neighbourhood?

Our UK visitor Mark Berry will be here over the next couple of weeks.
He’ll join us for Mission Shaped Ministry on July 29th, where we’ll share dinner with Mark, and then explore Discipleship. If you have friends, colleagues or co-leaders who would like to join us for this evening, we can fit a few extras in. Let Scott know by email.
The same day, from 3-5pm Mark will present on the topic of “new monasticism” (or intentional spiritual rhythms for faith communities) at Trinity College, Auchenflower. That event is a “no-cost” event and you’d be very welcome to join us. To RSVP, either email Wendi Sargeant, or head over to the facebook event page and sign up there.
