“The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.” Galatians 5:6
Faith can’t be all talk. As Christians, do we struggle to connect what we believe with how it is expressed in our everyday lives? How can we express our faith better? Might your congregation benefit from taking time to explore what this looks like at home, in church and the community.
Expressions is an eight session film series that seeks to connect themes from different passages of Scripture with the lived realities of the lives of church members to open up conversations on how their faith expresses itself in everyday life and witness.
The resource is a mix of downloadable on-screen Bible teaching and stories from members of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, along with questions for discussion provided in an accompanying booklet. It’s flexibility makes it ideally suited for use in home groups, midweek meetings or other environments in which you might be gathering members to talk together about what it looks like to follow and share Jesus today.
