But Does It Make Sense?
In 2020 reports told us that people were turning to God in prayer in large numbers, to help them through the challenges presented by Coronavirus. But is there actually any credible evidence to support belief in God, or is this merely a comfortable delusion - a soothing idea that can’t really be taken seriously?
Jonathan looks at the arguments for the Christian faith in light of the global events of last year and presents a case for hope in Christ for 2021 and beyond.
Shabazz is a husband, father and filmmaker who also loves making music. After spending 25 years in the film and TV industry he now works to see social change in the areas of so-called ‘race’ and ‘racism’, by using his creativity and strategic thinking to contribute to the discussions we are all having with one another, about how we can create harmony between different cultures, ethnicities and communities.
Empathy; the cure for so-called Racism
Why is it that we, who had no choice as to what colour skin we were born with, can hate people who also had no choice as to what colour skin they were born with? What makes us hate, and lack so much empathy? Is this 'natural' hate uncle Darwin’s ‘survival of the 'fiercest'’? Or is it indisputable evidence of the Bible’s claim that everyone born is born sinful and raised imperfectly?
Shabazz will discuss why only empathy and compassion can heal the deep wounds of society's skin colour hatred, and prevent further damage in the future.
