What on Earth

...always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect
~ 1 Peter 3:15

This Fall we'll take 3 weeks to ask the question: What on earth are we doing here?  Aimed at thoughtful skeptics, passionate followers of Jesus, and those who are keen to follow Jesus but may have lost some hope in the church - this series should help remind us of God's love, purpose & mission for His people.  And help inform our gathering, scattering, disciple-making & cultural engagement.  By grace, we'll be able to articulate with winsome gentleness, conviction, courage & grace the distinctions of Reality church and our posture towards God, one another and our neighbours.  

What on earth are we doing here?
