This Sunday we start a 6 week series looking at the apostle Paul's letter to the church at Colosse.
This letter to a church plant will always have a special place in my heart because I spent the first 18 months of RFC's life preaching my way, verse by verse, through it (I stopped at Chapter 4v6).
Somehow (in spite of my rookie preaching) the church grew. I suspect the letter's teaching on the preeminence of Jesus and us being alive in Him; on not letting others disqualify you as you put on your new self; and living life as the house hold of God, set the foundations for growth at RFC.
Do try to read this letter through before Sunday morning - it's only 4 chapters and packed full of grace and truth and life (it is Jesus-tastic).
