One of the best analogy for life is that of a journey. A journey is a path to a destination. That destination can be described as our destiny…
Most of us find ourselves on this journey not knowing where we are going, or what the journey is all about in the first place. So we sheepishly go with the flow: days, months, years; and we are none the wiser. Seasons change, powers shift, news headlines trend, technology advances; we grow older, but none the wiser.
“The journey of a thousand mile begins with a single step”, says the great Chinese Philosopher, Tao Tzu. With this in mind I will be starting a seven week series entitled, The Critical Stages of life. The Critical Stages of life is the product of a beautiful piece of work by Janet Hagberg and Robert Guelich; it is an attempt to articulate the key stages in the life of faith.
Jesus gave a very short and insightful analogy of life using an agricultural process. In this parable captured only in Mark’s version of Jesus’ story, we are offered private viewing of the mystery of human existence: the farmer, the seed, the soil, time, sprouting, growing, reproduction of seed, and finally the sickle by the farmer for the harvest.
Interestingly, the farmer and the harvester is an external agent. He is beyond human control, just as we are powerless over our birth and death.
So why not drop-by for a life-changing experience? This 90 mins might end up being a catalyst for some awesome things.

Our Big Sunday Celebration can be best described as a community Christian festival. So in the spirit of thanksgiving, together we: sing, pray, give, celebrate life, discuss current affairs, present thoughts from Biblical themes, and encourage one another; like one big family!
