Sunday 21st June 2020
Welcome! to Food for Thought Sunday online. Wherever you are zooming from this Sunday, we pray you will be encouraged from God’s word as our guest, David Robertson will open up the Bible to Colossians 2:1-10 to help us look at the various ways people think so we can contrast that with the way of Jesus Christ.
David will pose a number of questions for us to consider.
- What do I live for? What is important
- Does it matter what and how people think?
- What is the philosophy of Jesus Christ
Following, is all the information you will need to be able to benefit from Food for Thought Sunday.
