“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2
The last few weeks have seen plenty of storms, both literally, as the weather forecasters seem to move rapidly through the alphabet, and figuratively as world events spin out of a control. It is so easy for our minds to be filled with anxious thoughts as we watch events unfold in the Ukraine and pray for all those affected.
This year’s theme for New Horizon “Renewed Minds” seems so relevant. It recognises the difficult realities of life but looks at them from a “heavenly” perspective.
We are looking forward to what our Lord Jesus has to teach us through the ministry of our speakers as we come together once again in the big blue tent in the grounds of Ulster University in Coleraine. Please plan to join us.
