This week Mark unpacks how our world is built on a myth of scarcity. Steven Covey says, "Most people are deeply scripted in what I call the Scarcity Mentality. They see life as having only so much, as though they were only one pie out there".
The Bible, however, says in 2 Corinthians 9 that God is able to bless us abundantly. Mark invites us to take a posture of generosity in all areas of our lives, as a response to the abundant riches we are gifted. These Kingdom riches are to be shared so that others can experience God's inexhaustible abundance.

This week Mark highlights that the contemporary culture directs us to avoid trails and tests in our lives. However as James 1: 2-4 teaches us we are to find joy through the perseverance of these trials as it builds and shapes our character to be more like Jesus.

In this podcast Sarah takes us through the book of 1 Samuel, inviting us to see life and faith through the lens of David. Whilst this sounds nice and biblical of us, all too often we posture ourselves like Saul living lives shaped by fear. Whilst this is the human default it costs us the new beginnings that God is wanting us to enter. The Church in the west is in a threshold moment and 1 Samuel gives us vital lessons on how to enter and embrace what God is inviting us into.
