If you walk from Claycroft towards the university, you could hardly miss a big marquee infront of the maths building. I have not really checked the events organised by the Christian Union. I finally did today and gosh I’ve missed a lot.
Please take a look at this URL and see if you would be interested to see what is going on!!! LINK
If you are not satisfied with what life is at the moment, come and have a good discussion with people who find satisfaction in God. We are all not perfect but lets learn from each other.
A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, ‘Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?’ He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, ‘Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?’ They were terrified and asked each other, ‘Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!’ Mark 4:37-41 NIV
Last night’s cellgroup at church was fantastic. Great times with mates and discussing issues. I’ve not joined the group for a long time. But I’m so glad that I decided to go last nite. So inspired and blessed after the meeting. My landlord drove me to church which was a blessing in itself. We talked about church, etc. It was absolutely cool that he said that he’s not surprise that I’m a Christian. I take that as a compliment. He told me that he did Theology at uni. I’m impressed.
I’ve got so many friends from different cultural and religious background. We all respect each other and understand each other’s beliefs. I think understanding is very important and to accept another as they are. We do talk about our beliefs but we don’t impose on another. I believe it is healthy to have a friendly discussion on the belief systems. Not only you would understand more about where the other person is coming from, you would also respect everyone else around you more. No one is perfect. We are all fallible. Life is not a bed of roses but believing in God has helped me to go through all the situations in my life with confidence.
