In a world of competing narratives, what might it mean to live a flourishing Christian life? How could we live a better story driven by purpose, insight, and courage? What might it mean to live life to the full at this moment and at this time?
The human heart longs for fullness. No matter how secular the heart, people desire to experience that which is best, that which is satisfying, that which is whole. The Christian story offers a unique vision of truth, goodness, and beauty. It speaks to the whole of life, where work, rest, play and worship are to the glory of God and the good of all people.
