Online - Fakes, Lies, & Videotape: How Our Minds are Made Up
@
We all think we’re wise enough to spot fake news. But do we unwittingly forward it on in our own social media? Many of us do, often with good motives and the right impulses, without realising we’re being misled. The advent of digital media promised to democratise access to information, opening up possibilities for voices who would no longer need to prove their validity and significance to the gatekeepers of traditional media, such as the broadcast channels and mass-circulation newspapers. But how can we trust anything we see or hear? Christians claim to know the truth, which will set us free. But how do we discern the ‘truth’ in the midst of a technological revolution just as significant as the printing of the Gutenberg Bible?

Online - Leading a Church in a Post-Covid Frontline Landscape - part 1
@
How can a frontline-friendly church respond to the massive changes over recent months? What does it look like to lead a church in this changing frontline landscape?

Just as our ways of operating as churches have changed, so too many people’s frontlines have altered massively since COVID-19 emerged. There are new uncertainties and anxieties but also new opportunities. There are higher levels of homeworking, with more frontlines moving online – but at the same time, an increased number of people are facing redundancy. Some find themselves busier than before, some more bored than ever. There’s a sense of loss, and, for some, a sense of freedom that comes with new possibilities.

In this two-part afternoon series, we’ll explore how we as church leaders can navigate all this and more in a way that equips God’s people for living well on their changing frontlines. What biblical principles can we offer for such a time as this? Second part 16 March.
