Intro: 01 Story

Intro: 01 Story

David Armstrong begins a new series called Intro that is a great introduction to our community and explores what makes us Redeemer.

In the first part David speaks about the significance of stories and how we all live in a story whether we realise it or not. Stories provide meaning and help us make sense of the world but they don't always lead to flourishing. The narratives we are immersed in can be either liberating or enslaving. It is only when our story intersects with the story of God that we quickly become aware of the fictions and can begin to live our true story as our true selves.

Embrace the mystery (Guest: Jason Miller)

Our friend and guest Jason Miller explores this simple yet profound paradox — the closer we move to the centre of faith the more elusive and mysterious it seems. God cannot be put in a box or category yet has been revealed in a very particular way in time and place... in the person of Christ. The invitation is to embrace the mystery.
