We're at war! (but not with terrorists)

In the here and now, God has placed responsibility for law and order in the hands of governments and authorities. Christians are free to work in organisations like the police and the armed forces, but policing society and policing the world is not the church's job.

Nonetheless, all Christians and all churches are at war! We do not use the weapons of the world. And the enemy is not the people of other nations or other religions. The enemy of all of us is Satan and the great lie he has deceived us into believing about God. It is Satan who led us to believe that God does not have our best interests at heart. It's Satan who led us to believe our lives would be better living independently of God. We swallowed the lie and now suffer the appalling consequences. Not only is the world in an unbearable mess - a dangerous and frightening place to live in - but we face the outcome of turning our backs on God. “The wages of sin (living the lie) is death” [Romans 6:23].

True love

When I googled 'true love' I found that modern psychologists and relationship gurus are coming around to the Bible's way of thinking. I thought they'd say it was more of a feeling than a decision. But it seems that old idea is no longer what the experts believe.

So, people talk about falling in love, meaning it's something that just happens to us, a feeling that overwhelms us, over which we have no control. But the truth is....we do have control, if we want. As someone has said, 'the best way to think of love is a verb'. Feelings of love come and go. But we can control what we do with them when we have feelings of love; and we can control what we do when we don't have feelings of love.

True love is all about choices.

A new sports facility for Alibon Ward

In November 2016, leader of the Council, Darren Rodwell, opened our Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA), a new sports facility for residents and community groups in Alibon Ward.

Every little helps

Members of St George’s Church are finding creative ways to raise money for a new sports facility for local residents on their site in Rogers Road, Dagenham.

The multi-use games area will be available for hire by community organisations, such as youth and disability groups, and will cost in the region of £100,000.

Church member Sony Ejemai, who coaches youth football in Dagenham, is asking guests at his 50th birthday party next month to donate to the project rather than getting him a gift. Other members of the congregation are planning similar fundraising drives.

“Jesus told us to love your neighbour,” says Sony, “and this project is a fantastic way to do that.”
