TUESDAY

Parenting in the new millennium

Anxiety. It’s one of the biggest presenting mental health issues among young people today. In an age driven by social and visual media, what are the contributing factors and what can we do to help our families?

 

WEDNESDAY

Jez Reynolds – Pastor, EV Church

I’m pretty happy – so why would I need God?

“Some people might need religion to help get them through life but if you’re happy enough, why bother with the God thing?” Jez’s answer may surprise you.

THURSDAY

Mick and Jo had the good life. Happily married, solid job, great family, nice home, good friends, vice-president of the local footy club. But something was missing! What happened next?

 

FRIDAY

Craig Dobbie – Pastor, Grace Church Peninsula

Who am I? Speck, special, or something else

Some say we’re all just biological accidents but what about purpose, meaning, values, & longings? Where have we come from, where are we going, and why does it matter when raising a family?
