Serving Without Sinking

29th September

On Saturday 28th September 2013 it was our joy to host a day conference at the Hope Centre called Serving Without Sinking. The speaker for the day was John Hindley, author of the book Serving Without Sinking. The day consisted of sung worship, three teaching sessions and plenty of time to discuss what we’d been learning over coffee. The teaching was phenomenal! Gentle and yet profoundly challenging. Pretty much everyone who attended left blessed, provoked and encouraged.

The audio is now online and is highly recommended.

Serving Without Sinking by John Hindley is a timely, practical and encouraging book that every Christian who is engaged in ministry of any kind should read.

This is a review by Nathan Davies:

Living in the most depressed place in the UK can prove to be a challenge to my joy. Torfaen has the highest use of anti depressants (103 per 1000 prescriptions) in the country and living here means that finding joy is tougher than usual.

Joy, after love, is the second fruit of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5:22-23 and therefore must be of high importance in the Christian life. However in the Western world of Christianity I really do not see a lot of outward joy. Why is this?!
