Get Ready To Suffer (And Be Very Glad!)
1 Peter 3:8-18, 4:1-4, 12-19
The idea of suffering for our faith is something that in the present climate seems to be becoming a more immediate possibility. The same was true of the first readers of 1 Peter, and Peter’s advice to them is incredibly relevant to us today, especially the seemingly strange exhortation- to ‘be very glad’.

Who Is Your Shepherd?
1 Peter 5:1-4
In these times, our culture is desperately cynical about leadership, and for good reason. Yet somewhere deep down, we also seem to be aching for something better, for good leadership. At Churchcentral ONE, Jonathan unpacked to us our leadership options - the culture, religion, ourselves, or Jesus.
