Judgment To Generosity
Luke 6:36-37
Critical, finger-pointing, slow to think the best of others - it's not a great list! But, tragically, even the church of Jesus can fall into such graceless judgmentalism. By considering our past, our future, and who God is, Jonny helps us move instead towards a generosity of spirit.

Bitterness To Forgiveness
Ephesians 4:21-5:2
The good news of Christianity is full to the brim of forgiveness. And yet in a world of outrage, as Christians we often fall short of our calling and fail to forgive as we have been forgiven. In this talk, Jonathan shows us how the gospel has the power to transform bitter people into forgiving people.
