First in a series on being strong in a changing world.
Most of us love succeeding, growing, pushing forwards. We love it so much, we might think we never want to stop, we don't have a "reverse gear", or that we can only have a chilled life later, after lots and lots of striving.
That's the dream - but is there an even better reality?
Cutbacks always feel hard, and it sometimes feels that we've failed if we don't keep growing our work and our stuff. But what if you are more important than that? Could there be someone who loves you no matter what - and could that change how you live?
This series is based on ideas from "The Semicircle - Living in Rhythm with Life" by Mike Breen, part of his "Lifeshapes" series. This, in turn, was based on the life of Jesus and ideas from The Bible, which includes this invitation: "Taste and see that the Lord is good."
