Problem With Hell
David Allis [NEW ZEALAND]
"Hell is potentially a hot topic, and I approach it with some
fear & trepidation. Yet it is an incredibly important topic, as,
in itís typically accepted form, Christians anticipate that many
(possibly the majority) of people who have ever lived will spend
eternity suffering there. Surely the expected permanent destination
for so many people is worthy of careful consideration."
Amnesia: Has the Church lost her way?
George Elerick [UK]
"You slowly make your way through the ex-warehouse to find a place
in the movie-style seating while the band is playing the number
one praise song of the week. A week before, you handed over a
couple of tickets and you casually strolled through the masses,
into the standing room only gig and the band came out and everybody
screamed. One is a church, the other is rock show, is there a
difference? Should there be?"
for the Night
Jon Oliver [UK]
we started thinking about St. Peterís Church right slap bang in
the middle of Bournemouth, with a club on either side of it and
a club right opposite it. Then we started thinking about what
might happen if we opened it up overnight one weekend when all
the clubs were at their busiest.
