Reflections on 2018, 2019
Updated: Apr 11
2018, was significant because we changed location. We “stepped out in faith” to meet, each Sunday morning, at Metro Aspire Hotel, Ultimo.
2019, has been settling into the new location and connecting with the new area, although people come to our church from almost everywhere around Sydney.
We started with the theme, Liberating a City, learning from Joshua’s taking the city of Jericho. I love our theme's key verse – Acts 8:8 There was great joy in that city! At the end of quarter, the miracle election had added meaning. Our Prime Minister has Christian values and is promoting religious freedom.
Other themes were about knowing who we are in Christ, Spirituality for Today, and relating with Other Religions. Freedom of religion benefit's everyone, including those with no religious beliefs.
Having looked back, I am excited to face the new year ahead – 2020. Our starting theme, Tough and True, taken from the challenging letter to the Hebrews in the New Testament.
Happy & blessed New Year, 2020!
Pastor, Hope Sydney Christian Church
