March 11th 2018. Living with the end in mind: Gospel of the Kingdom Mark 13:10. Stephen Covey, best-selling author of ‘7 habits of highly effective people’ says ‘begin with the end in mind’. The Bible narratives all point towards an end and Jesus’ parables often address those who fail to live with the end in mind. Jesus said to his disciples when asked about the ‘end of the age’, ‘The gospel must first be preached to all nations’(c.f. Matthew 24:14, Luke 24:47). So far everyone who has predicted the end of the world has got it wrong! Does that mean that it’s not for humans to discern, or that conditions for the end of the ages have not yet been fulfilled? Download Discussion notes


March 18th 2018. Living with the end in mind: Day of the Lord: Malachi 4. Stephen Covey, best-selling author of ‘7 habits of highly effective people’ says ‘begin with the end in mind’. The Bible narratives all point towards an end and Jesus’ parables often address those who fail to live with the end in mind. Malachi in the last book and the last verses of the Old Testament points towards the great and terrible day of the Lord. If it happened tomorrow would that be good news or bad news as far as you are concerned? Download Discussion notes
