Fully Alive! Mission & Ministry Partners

Leader: Mags Duggan

Jesus said `I have come that you might have life and have it in all its fulness`. (John 10v10) `Many sincere followers of Jesus are living wholesome lives of quiet desperation`. (Stephen W. Smith, writer and counsellor). How do we reconcile the truth contained in both of these statements? We know that Jesus has called us to be fully alive, but we know too the reality of the quiet desperation, the weariness, the dull numbness of a muted life lived in the breathless rush of our days and in the demands of our roles and responsibilities.

Non-residential price: £215.00
