Each term we take a contemporary issue and reflect on what the Bible teaches us. Below are some of the issues we have previously looked at.
Value creation is something that is rarely discussed within Christian circles - but should we see it as an important part of living in God’s world? Some people are called into business and could make a huge difference for the glory of God in his world.
Life in this world can be frustrating at times but what is God’s intention for us living as Christians in his world? How does Genesis 1-2 help us see what it means to live as God’s image bearers having been given dominion over the creation?
God created humanity to be fruitful, multiply and rule the world.

Should we simply withdraw from the world or seek to bring heaven on earth here? Or is there a middle way?
