Women's Breakfast - February 10

On Saturday 10 February we shall be gathering the women of the church for breakfast and a book study.

We shall be studying Tim Keller’s fantastic little book, “The Freedom Of Self-Forgetfulness”. This is what the blurb says…

‘What are the marks of a supernaturally changed heart?’

This is one of the questions the apostle Paul addresses as he writes to the church in Corinth. He’s not after some superficial outward tinkering, but instead a deep-rooted, life-altering change that takes place on the inside. In an age where pleasing people, puffing up your ego and building your CV are seen as the methods to “make it”, the apostle Paul calls us to find true rest in blessed self-forgetfulness.

In this short and punchy book, best-selling author Timothy Keller shows that gospel humility means we can stop connecting every experience, every conversation with ourselves and can thus be free from self-condemnation. A truly gospel-humble person is not a self-hating person or a self-loving person, but a self-forgetful person. This freedom can be yours…

We will be gathering from 9am for breakfast and for some group discussion, and would love for women of all ages in the church to join us. There are still some copies of the book available to collect from the Admin Desk, and if time is pressed don’t worry – it’s only 44 pages long!

See you on the 10th!
