On Sunday, 23rd August, we looked at the difference between controlling and controlled
And just how much control God has in our daily lives…?
Don’t build your house on the sandy land,
don’t build your house on the sand
because it might look kinda nice
but you’ll have to build it twice
yes, you will have to build your house once more♫
On Sunday the 16th August we took a look at Matthew 7 as we tackled the renovations that are needed for us to begin anew….
‘… for everything there is a season’
“One of the interesting insights of this reality of life is that there is also an “in between moment”. A moment in which we adjust to loss / change and begin to prepare for the next or new season. The HillSide community is now in such a ‘moment’! Yes there is sadness, there is uncertainty and dare I say, some fear.But we must I believe treat this moment as a gift. A God given gift, a time to reflect, to listen, to prepare for the new season in which we can continue to bring the energy, giftedness and creativity that this community has, so as to re-engage in the work God has called us to and be the people God needs us to be in this place at this time”.
A new broom sweeps clean…
Did you know that full proverb is A new broom sweeps clean, but the old one knows all the corners.

Does it mean we stick to our old ways? Lauren suggests that the direction we go as we move into the future is not really the question we should be asking. Rather, let us ask, what does it mean to be a broom? Cryptic? Listen in!
