Teaching Topic 2018
And we will be turning our mind to exploring the 'rare jewel of Christian contentment'. One of the most remarkable statement's in all of Scripture is the apostle's Paul outlandish declaration "I have learned the secret of contentment"!! Secret, indeed! So lost on so many; so elusive even amongst us.

2018 Camp Talks: Contentment: Pt 1; Pt 2; Pt 3; Pt 4

It's rare for a church to spend a whole weekend together. And we try to make the most of it socially, teaching-wise, and personally.

Regularly down at Camp Wilkin in Anglesea on the third weekend in March, we have a week-end of shared meals and social activities (both planned and free-time). We take the time over a coffee to speak to those we don't know so well, and/or to pursue further those we already know a little. We invite along a guest speaker who helps us to reflect on our faith from a specific and stretching angle. And we allow enough space for all of us to take stock and assess where we're at and how we're going. The children of course love it. And while it may not be altogether relaxing (with a few small children), it is terrifically valuable both personally and corporately.
