What our good friend Jonathan Kent shared with us on Sunday was about identity and how that related in the Apostle Peter’s life.

He reminded us to know who we are; that we God’s chosen people, that our identity has changed forever and we are to live fruitful and purposeful lives.

The John Wimber video Chris refers to in this talk can be watched here.
Charlotte Webb from Jubilee Church Liverpool challenges the way we approach God in our lives. She asks what is the meaning of true joy and how can it be part of our everyday experience? We need to come to a new place of thinking, expecting God to breakthrough, but equally trusting in His sovereignty to bring about His perfect plans. Charlotte shares a story that brought her to a new place of finding joy in God’s sovereignty.
