Lydia, Paul and Our Preconceptions
Mark speaks to us about this seemingly insignificant encounter between Lydia and Paul, which ultimately lead to the growth of the church in Philippi which became a centre for Christianity in early Church History. Through reading scripture we are invited to allow our preconceptions to be challenged and to allow our vision to be changed so we can see the significance of small actions done out of obedience to God and love of his creation.

What to believe...
Mark speaks on our culture of conspiracy theories and scripture, reflecting on the example of Thomas. A person who was willing to ask questions and to dig deeper into the mysteries of faith. Thomas is a hero for our time, not just a 'doubter,' but an example for the church to question and through experience find the faith to say 'my Lord and my God.'
