Cultivating a Garden of Contentment:
“I have everything that I need - the secret of being content.”

 

In a world that is constantly seeding discontent so that we will consume more and more products, how might we learn with Paul what it means to truly be content with all that God provides and in all circumstances, without becoming complacent to the injustice around us.

During the weekend we offer opportunities to worship, sing, craft, walk, have conversations and ground ourselves in creation and the importance of justice and peace in our world. Together we’ll learn through teaching and small group discussions what it means to be truly content.
