Image, Identity, Idolatry: Who we are and who we think we are
with Matthew Roberts
At City Evangelical Church, Leeds, Wednesday 20th November between 9.15am and 1.00pm. Registration from 8.45am
In an age when the BBC tells children that there are 'more than 100 genders', identity is an issue in our society as never before. And it is a huge issue in the church too, which none of us can or should avoid. How do we preach the gospel in an age when it is heard as a personal attack, not just on people's lifestyles, but on themselves at the deepest level? But in fact the gospel of Christ speaks powerfully about who we are in the deepest sense. We will be seeing that, if we get a clear view of how our identity is grounded in our worship, our age of identity crisis is a wonderful new opportunity to preach God's good news with clarity and power.

Destination Death and the Path of Life
With David Gibson
Ecclesiastes can be one of the hardest parts of the Bible's terrain to navigate, and it is lodged in a far country of the Bible we don't often visit (Wisdom Literature). We will explore the riches of this genre in the Bible for life and ministry and try to get a handle on Ecclesiastes' surprising message that 'the day of death is better than the day of birth' (7:2).

He has published widely and his books include "Destiny Learning to live by preparing to die" (IVP). He is also co-editor of “From Heaven He Came and Sought Her” (Crossway).
