Faith: a marathon, not a sprint.

What's this message about?
The New Testament uses the imagery of running a race to describe the Christian journey.
We need to nurture, strengthen and encourage our Church family, to avoid burnout and to develop perseverance.
In a united Church, everyone plays a vital part.
We must teach the truth about discipleship.
We run our race, out of gratitude and love to God.
God has work prepared for us, on our journey.
Forget the failures of the past - we have been forgiven through the cross.
Press on to receive the prize of eternal life - given freely to believers.
Let us develop our faith, so that we can successfully run the race and claim the prize.
