Prayer - does it matter?
A lot of people talk about prayer but what actually is prayer? What role did it play in Jesus' life? And does it matter in our lives? Marcellus looks at the practice of prayer in Jesus’ life and what that means for us.
You have got enough time to pray.
We sometimes don’t pray because we think we don’t have time. Sometimes we don't pray because we think we don’t know how. Today Marcellus looks at what Jesus says about prayer and he says the problem is in fact far deeper.
Why do we overcomplicate prayer?
We know prayer is important, but we talk about it more than we do it. Often the hardest thing is just to get started. How do we go about making prayer a habit?
Well Jesus very simply and practically tells us to pick a time and a place…
Walking in relationship with God
Living a different story can be challenging, especially if we don't know where to look for instructions.
Where should we be looking to for our instructions for living our best life, a different life?

Dealing with authority
We almost always think we’re right, otherwise why would we believe the things we do? We all make mistakes and it’s those that care about us that point to the things we can’t see in ourselves. Sometimes though, for pride or fear, we find it hard to listen to leaders in the church and our Christian brothers and sisters who love and care for us. This week's short talk takes us through 1 Thessalonians 5:13-14 to think about what discipleship might look like in these difficult conversations.
