Jesus the Game Changer
A new billboard at the north end of Wyong has had a few heads turning this last week. Jesus the Game Changer has appeared on a billboard at the roundabout where the Pacific Hwy turns right across the railway line at Watanobbi.
Jesus the Game Changer shares how the life and teaching of Jesus changed the world and why it matters. In the lead up to Easter 2018, Australian churches including St James in Wyong are joining together to share this message with their communities.
Jesus Christ has made an indelible mark on human history and He continues to do so through His followers. Yet many people do not realise that the values western democracies are built on originate in the life and teaching of Jesus – the equality of all, servant leadership, care for the poor and marginalised, dignity of women and children, education, to name just a few.
In this documentary series, host Karl Faase travels to the UK, USA, Singapore, India and Australia, interviewing authors, academics and modern-day game changers about how the life and teaching of Jesus changed the world and why it matters. . The series features people such as John Ortburg, Christine Cain, Rico Tice, Rodney Stark, Vishal Mangelwadi, Jossy Chacko, Eric Metaxas, John Dickson, Paula Gooder and many others. The content of the series is balanced between historical information, cultural insights and retelling the stories of modern day game changers.
Jesus the Game Changer begins on Sunday 25 February (mid-week groups commence from Monday 19) and runs over six Sundays leading up to Easter. The series will be run at St James Anglican Church each Sunday morning as well as the opportunity to dig deeper through the week. In small groups. Each week a different topic is explored using the series DVD and a booklet to guide small group discussion (also available as a free app). Topics include Jesus, Equality, Women and Children, Care, Leadership and Forgiveness. The series concludes on Easter Sunday 1st April 2018.
