"Set your hearts on things above, not on earthly things...and the Word became flesh and moved into the neighbourhood".
Consumerism and conflict, politics and power, fear and injustice mark the narrative of our world and our streets. Humanity was created from the dust of the land, yet God breathed His life into us - but have we lost connection to both? As we follow Jesus, how do we understand and balance the call to seek His kingdom coming in the now of our neighbourhoods and world, yet have faith and find hope in the promise of a creation made whole. Can we embody the way of Jesus now as citizens in our places and world, yet hold an eternal identity as saints?

JOIN US FOR A 4KM WALK ALONG THE STURT RIVER AND RAISE MONEY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE HUNGRY
Many people walk into MarionLIFE Community Services hungry.
Some haven’t eaten for a day, others for longer.
Some people have families to feed, others just need a little food for themselves.
The MarionLIFE Hunger Walk is an annual event to raise awareness about those experiencing hunger and raise money to support the work of MarionLIFE Community Services providing food, care and support to individuals and families in need.
Saturday 3 November 2018 at 9:00am
