Bill’s Letter for October 2016

Last month I wrote that we were starting our latest series of groups for people exploring their faith. The groups have started but it is not too late to join. The idea of the groups is not to tell people what they should   believe, but rather to help explore some of the big questions of life. What is life all about? Where am I going? What is the point of it all? It is all too easy to drift through life without taking time to…

One of the great gifts and challenges we face in life is the ability to make choices. Free will seems at the same time to be a wonderful gift and an opportunity for disaster.

But there are also daily important choices about how we live and relate to each other. One of the biggest choices we face is about what we believe and what principles…
