// DO YOU KNOW ANYONE IN BRISBANE?

Encouraged by our first ‘City Vision Brisbane’ event last night in Melbourne. Really stoked to be part of City on a Hill and feel well supported. Here’s a bunch of photos from the night.

I would love your help in spreading the word about our next one on September 10 in Brisbane. Do you know people in Brisbane? Invite them to the event on facebook.

// CRAZY TIMES

INSTAGRAM YO

Praising the Lord for a great weekend in Sydney… Preaching the good news of Jesus (including 8 young crew putting their trust in Jesus!!) and sharing our vision to #KnowJesus and #MakeJesusKnown next year through City on a Hill: Brisbane. It’s only 12 months since we moved from Sydney to Melbourne. And in a few months time we’ll be getting ready to move from Melbourne to Brisbane. Crazy times.

Typically when people plant new churches, they have an info night to share the vision and call for support. We wondered where we should do ours… Where we’ve come from – Sydney? Where we are now – Melbourne? Or where we’re going – Brisbane? We decided to do all three locations! Crazy times.

So this week is our first ‘City Vision Brisbane’ event in Melbourne. Thursday 27 August, 7pm at Krimper Cafe on Guildford Lane Melbourne.

We are daunted, yet excited by what is ahead and trusting God to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine. We’d love as many people from Melbourne to be there on the night. Please join us!

Details for all 3 events are on the City on a Hill: Brisbane Facebook page

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. #Selah” (Psalm 46:1-3 #ESV)

// GRACE IS GREATER

#NewMorningMercies:

“Yes, you’re weak, you’re often foolish, and you tend to want your own way, but God’s redeeming grace is greater.” (@PaulDavidTripp)

“For thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness.” (Ezekiel 34:11-12 #ESV)

// HE GAVE EVERYTHING

INSTAGRAM YO

“…we need to remember that the essence of loving is giving and that the degree of love is measured partly by the costliness of the gift to the giver and partly by the worthiness or unworthiness of the recipient. By these standards, God’s love in Christ is absolutely unique. For in sending his Son to die for sinners, he was giving everything, his very self, and giving himself for those who deserved nothing from him except judgment.” (#JohnStott)

// THE GOSPEL COALITION AUSTRALIA

INSTAGRAM YO

I enjoyed being part of a leaders gathering of The Gospel Coalition Australia in #Brisbane this week.

#TGCA has “an Australia-wide vision for promoting faithful, persevering, Christ-honouring, Bible-driven, Spirit-empowered, gospel-centred ministry.” I think that this coalition will be an important part of proclaiming the #goodnews of Jesus to the next generation.

Check out the website for some great resources.

“When Jesus saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” (Matthew 9:36 #ESV)

// EVERYTHING HANGS ON THIS

INSTAGRAM YO

“If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn’t rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hangs is not whether or not you like his teaching but whether or not he rose from the dead.” (#TimKeller)
