God Reveals - Ephesians 3:1 - 13

Is God distant or close? For many it perhaps suits them for God to be distant.

To do this may require you to engage in some kind of spiritual warfare

God Blesses - Ephesians 1

This year we start a new series called 'Understanding God'. First using Ephesians to rehearse some 'core theology' (i.e. how we understand God), we will then spend some time looking at the cross through different windows, before using Zechariah to see God speaking into the life of the people past and present.
