Shake it Off (Players are Gonna Play)

“Players gonna play…Haters gonna hate…I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, I shake it off, I shake it off.” Leadership lessons from Taylor Swift.

Blood Brothers

When Jesus said this is the blood of my covenant, he meant that he was about to become our blood brother. It means that your troubles are now restricted, your needs have already been provided for and your life is protected. There’s a contract over your life.

The Third Culture

Our churches are filled with Third Culture People – people who grew up in a different culture to the one which their parents grew up in. Third Culture Kids (3CKs) share a sense of not quite belonging to any place – when asked ‘Where do you come from?’, their answer is always: ‘Then we moved to…then we moved to…’. This is about their journey, their fight, their future. This is about every church in every city all over the world.
