The Upside Down | Part 2: Blessed are those who mourn

David Armstrong speaks on the second beatitude and this strange proclamation of Jesus that those who mourn are blessed. He explores grieving and it's role to enlarge our souls, to make way for human connection and participation and make room for the comfort and healing of others and God.

The Series "The Upside Down" seeks to dig into the Beatitudes, understanding what Jesus is saying and seeing the upside-down world which He speaks about.

Words build Worlds | Part 4: Creative and Prophetic Words

This week Ryan Hawthorne completes our series on the power of words, looking at creative and prophetic words. Giving us an overview of the prophets in the Old Testament and showing the unglamorous side of a prophet's life - the expectation of 'prophetic humiliation' - Ryan encourages us nonetheless to become people who speak the creative, hopeful words of God. By doing this, we begin to speak the Kingdom of God into being; we build a new world of justice, without pain or suffering, and in the presence of Jesus.
