Who am I? God Knows!

An exploration of our Christian identity. 
Who am I...

In my body?

With my money?

At my age?

Message from MSF 2015 President on the theme

Who am I? It seems our identities are shaped by many complex forces. How does my body and what I do with my body relate to my true identity? Does my money, or lack of money change how I view myself? How does my age affect the way I see myself and others see me? Am I primarily an individual or a member of a wider body? And how does my Christian identity relate to all these other factors?

These are some of the questions we will be exploring at the Methodist Summer Fellowship this year, through bible study, through talks given by some very inspiring speakers, through worship and through prayer. I am hoping the week will also give us the opportunity to rediscover our creative, playful selves through opportunities to engage with art and through the many opportunities for conversation, fun and games.

So please do join us this summer for a time of re-creation and an opportunity to explore with friends the image in which we have been made and the person God calls us to be.
