Kate Boehringer speaks on the tension between Wisdom and Faith in our spiritual journey.As Christians we are often called to step into the unknown. Understanding that there is more to Wisdom than things we know, Kate reminds us that knowing God is the beginning of knowing ourselves and that it is enough to just be with One who created us.

It was a privilege to hear from Paul and Amanda as they shared their testimony of God’s goodness during a tumultuous season of their lives. What an inspiration their story is!
They lived the following scripture: James 1:2-4 MSG ‘Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colours. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work, so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.’
Jody Destry spoke on the wonderful gift that the Holy Spirit is to us. He is our Helper and our Advisor. We learn how to recognise the voice of the Holy Spirit and how asking for help is not weakness but our greatest strength.
