What can a see-saw teach us about living in God's truth? How much do we want to understand the truth - and what might prevent us from hearing and living in that truth?
Listen to this week's talk to find answers to these important questions.
Why doesn't the truth register?
How strong is your desire to know and live in God's truth? Why is it that sometimes we can understand that truth immediately - yet at other times we get stuck and don't move on?

Wouldn't it be tragic to reach the end of our lives and know that we could have been different - yet chose not to!

Why is it often so difficult to be real about our struggles in church?
After the recent Step Two weekend a group of us were discussing the benefits of the weekend and the Understanding Yourself material. The questions were raised why some people are prepared to pursue greater understanding whilst others are not and why it is often easier to share that growing understanding with people outside the church than with other Christians. Please join our discussion and add your thoughts and experiences here. The discussion will inform the church course
An excellent weekend!
Step Two is a challenging weekend as we take the concepts we learnt on Step One and seek to apply them to our lives - and discover how lovely we really are! The path to that discovery brought
freedom and greater understanding and gave everyone food for thought as
they returned home. As ever the accommodation and hospitality at School Farm Cottages was enjoyed by all.
When the world falls apart
A small gardening accident caused Merle to reflect on circumstances that can cause our world to fall apart and the devastating effects of war and conflict. History says that we can remember, learn and move on. What positive qualities do we need to enable us to have peace within and to handle the difficulties that so easily interrupt our lives.

Do you feel alone?
Jesus was let down by his disciples at his most difficult time. What did he do? Complain about their lack of faith and friendship? No - he told them that he was not really alone because his Father was with him. How do you respond when you feel alone and let down and what
can we learn from Jesus' example
during these times?
