This year our theme is the Kingdom of God. As part of this we’ll be looking at the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes, until the summer, using a book called The God Lab by Roger Bretherton.

I love the idea of the God Lab, as after each Beattitude the author gives a ‘God Experiment’. So we are not just people hearing what God is saying, but we try it out for ourselves! God is not only to be read about, but he’s also to be experienced! As the Psalmist says – ‘taste and see that God is good’.

If life were a football game, I would encourage us to stop spectating and get down onto the pitch. If life were a feast, the encouragement would be to come and eat.
