Dear <<First Name>>, 

In this week's spiritual quest, a man comes to Jesus and identifies himself as a "good person." He says he follows all the rules and does all the right things--but he still feels unsure about eternal life, about whether he is actually good. The man is rich and successful, but it seems as if he is still missing a deeper sense of purpose and meaning in his life.

Jesus' response came as quite a shock and a challenge, as he told him to sell all he owned and give it to the poor. Jesus wasn't being harsh--the text says he loved the man--but the man still left sad, because he was unwilling to make such a leap.

This story unsettles us even now, especially those of us who are wealthy. What did Jesus mean? Does the only path to eternal life require us to sell all we own? What does Jesus make of those of us who, like the man in the story, can't quite bring ourselves to rise to his challenge?

If your spiritual quest has ever caused you to wonder about the meaning of life, being a good person, wealth, giving, and purpose, join us on Sunday for more. 


Pastor Jennifer

Pavement works have now started in earnest on Tottenham Court Road as a part of Camden's West End Project. Through access will be maintained during the works, but partial lane closures and periodic parking suspensions may be in effect. If you normally drive to the church, be prepared to factor this into your journey times. If you take the bus, check to make sure there are no diversions or changes.
