This week I have had the privilege and joy of preaching a series of services in the Dutch Reformed Church, Helderberg Congregation. It is a vibrant mega-Church with a deep commitment to spirituality, evangelism, mission and social action. Truly a wonderful group of people and a great model of a well functioning large Church.
The topic I was invited to speak on this week was 'Monday Morning Atheist?' Basically, we have discussed the tendency among many contemporary Christians to operate as 'functional atheists' outside of the time they spend in gathered worship. Simply stated, one way of speak of an an atheist is as someone who lives as if God doesn't exist or matter in their life. Many Christians are functional atheists when it comes to their work place, their community life, and in fact most aspects of their life outside of the times and geographical spaces associated with the gathered Christian community.
We have discussed different ways of remaining Christian, and being the Church even when we 'scatter' into the world (particularly the world of work).
Many persons have asked where they can get hold of copies of the book that I wrote with Graham entitled 'Transform your work life'.
If you want a physical (paper!) copy of the book you can order it from Loot in South Africa, or from Amazon in the USA (the US edition has a slightly different cover, so don't be surprised!), or from Cannaan Land in Malaysia.
Of course the easiest is to get a Kindle Copy to your smart phone, table or computer by ordering it here.
