Keeping up in an ever changing world

17 July 2016 Wesley Impact! TV

Wesley Mission interacts and builds genuine connections with thousands of young people and teenagers every year. The ways we do this are continually changing, so this week the Rev Keith Garner speaks to a social researcher who is helping promote an understanding of the behavioural patterns and social trends within our communities.

Emerging Christian artist, Grace Saunders, sings ‘Man of sorrows’ and Mr Garner explores Luke 10:38—42, when Jesus visits the home of two sisters and experiences two very different reactions from them.

Also this week, the Mr Garner presents Candice’s story of hope, showing how she went from being a single mother struggling to make ends meet, to making meaningful steps toward leading the life she aspires to.

Candice’s story: Building stronger families

When we met Candice, she was a young mother struggling to deal with the scars of childhood trauma and eager to learn how to provide a good life for her children. By supporting and walking alongside Candice, we’ve seen her gain and develop the skills she needs to build a strong and happy family.

Today, Candice has full-time employment, can provide for her child, and is leading a life of purpose.

Special guest: Clare Madden

Keith’s message: The Two Sisters

This week, the Rev Keith Garner discusses the visit of Jesus to the home of two sisters. We explore their very different reactions and consider the powerful thought of Jesus, “But few things are needed – or indeed only one.”
