Description

It is ultimately God who is the great poet, writing the story of humanity one verse at a time, in the lives of ordinary men and women. And while it encompasses the entire universe, it is made up of individual characters and their life stories--the life stories of each one of us.

nnn

In this sermon from Summer 2017, Paul Spilsbury reflects on the riches of Ephesians 2.1-10. What does it mean for followers of Christ to understand themselves as God's handiwork? And how does this understanding help us find our place in the world, and in God's great epic?
