We are sponsoring a business breakfast at Aurora Cafe on Thursday November 5th 2015, 7-8am.
Why is a church doing this? In addition to helping people discover more about Jesus and grow spiritually, we are a church who works alongside others to develop thriving communities, which includes thriving businesses. When businesses are functioning in an efficient and just way, the community is being well served, people have meaningful employment, and everyone can enjoy the economic benefits.
Our speaker this time is Trish Franklin, a facilitator for Capable NZ. She, along with local businesswoman Kylie Ellis, will highlight the work of Capable NZ in facilitating growth and career advancement through the recognition of experience and individual needs. See www.capablenz.co.nz
Interestingly, Trish's work with people always leads to reflection on the whole of their life, their past experiences and their future aspirations. This raises deep questions of meaning and purpose, as well as personal talents and qualities. There is a strong connection in all this with the good news of Jesus which calls us to turn to a relationship with God that affects every part of our lives. The best response to God's love and goodness to us, is to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength, and to love others as we love ourselves.
Make sure you invite someone else and I hope to see you there.
