The Jesus Lifestyle — 6 Talks by Nicky Gumbel, Vicar at Holy Trinity Brompton
Presented on DVD this series covers current relevant topics including happiness, anger, sex and divorce.
Held at Culcheth Methodist Church, each evening will begin with refreshment at 7.30pm
Our culture is obsessed with lifestyle. The media tells us what to wear, how to get fit, what to drive and how to love. Everyone wants to tell us how to live our lives. Jesus didn't leave us a lifestyle magazine, he showed people how to live.
These 6 fortnightly evenings examine Jesus' Sermon on the Mount from the Bible and the radical alternative it presents to our modern lifestyle.
Simple, memorable, and profound, Jesus' words from Matthew 4 — 6 are as relevant and challenging today as they were 2,000 years ago.
This follows a similar format as the Alpha Course of a video followed by discussion groups,. It is led, as is the Alpha Course, by Nicky Gumbel.
The course is based on the Sermon on the Mount and presents, with Nicky's familiar mix of humour and wisdom, the way Jesus tells us to live our lives.
