“What are you doing here?”  1 Kings 19:1-18 and Psalm 42:1-5.  The main passage we will be looking at this Sunday is 1 Kings 19:1-18 which is the story of Elijah’s encounter with God in Mount Horeb.  It is a rich and vibrant story that covers the whole spectrum of human emotion: from the heights of triumph to the very depths of despair.  It tells us so much about our God and about us – and it leaves us with one very provoking question: “what are you doing here?”  Katherine.

Is There A God? A Debate between Peter Singer and John Lennox.  In the beginning, there was God. … or was it just the universe? In the land Down Under, two intellectual titans go head to head over an age-old question: Is there a God?  Oxford scientist and Christian apologist John Lennox takes on bioethicist and philosopher Peter Singer, one of the most controversial and influential atheist of our time.  Fixed Point’s Larry Taunton moderates the debate in the handsome Town Hall of Melbourne, Australia – Singer’s home city.  So where does the evidence ultimately lead: to God, or to no God?  “Given what we know about the world now, belief in a deity – particularly a deity of the Bible – is irrational.’- Peter Singer.  “Just as rationality can be used but cannot ultimately be explained without God, the same is true of morality.” – John Lennox.
