1 October: Dom Clarke

This was our first meeting since we invited men from other churches and we were pleased to welcome six men from three different chuches. We trust that they enjoyed the evening and that more will join us as time goes by.

Dom first updated with news of Beacon Church in Borden: the developers invited the church into the new development and will pay for the building of the church (which will feature a 24/7 prayer room) and also pay Dom's salary for three years! Dom wants the church to be a church for those who don't do church.

Dom read from Mark, chapter 8, verses 27 to 30:

Peter Declares That Jesus Is the Messiah

Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?”

They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.

It is significant that this chapter is in the middle of Mark's gospel and is in the midddle of chapter - this is important.

Dom asked us who do people say you are? Do we want to project an image - do we worry about what people think of us? Only God really knows us.

We were then challenged to answet Jesus's question: who do we say He is.
