From the 19th of April to the 31st of May, Churspacious posts will be about, ‘The New

Have you ever noticed that churches are obsessed with their buildings? The People = The Church.
26th of April: Luke 19: 1-9.
Jesus affirms us so why are we so judgey? Jesus = Love.
3rd of May: John 5: 1-18.
Are we church every day, or just on Sundays? And what about self-care? Church = 24/7.
10th of May: Luke 10: 25-37.
What’s with the ‘us/them’ culture in churches? Church = for All.
17th of May: Mark 10: 17-27.
Why does freedom always seem to come with boxes and rules? Free = Free!
24th of May: 1 Corinthians 12: 12-26.
Can you ever really force someone else to change their mind? And should we? Diversity = Disagreement.
