Tough Questions

Growing our Church Family through loving God and our neighbour

St Margaret’s – Bethel – St Mark’s

Tough Questions

Jesus calls his followers to a distinctive way of living and believing; the Kingdom of God. This is based on the law and the prophets of the kingdom of Israel in the Old Testament and in the witness of his own life and teachings in the New. Our faith in 21st century Britain is founded on material dating from periods of human history very different from our own.
The complexities of our modern life continue to raise tough questions for Christian people. It is tempting to keep these issues entirely separate from our faith but surely that is not how Jesus would have it. We should confront the questions and try to understand how our faith answers them…even if we don’t all agree!
Over four sessions I will attempt to tackle the four questions outlined overleaf …with some help from friends. I do not pretend that my word is the last on any of the subjects, but I hope we can open them up in a sensitive way which recognises the main strands of Christian thinking on them over the years. Please come and join the journey. I hope and pray that it will deepen and enrich your faith and better equip you to share that faith sympathetically with enquiring people in the future.
