Today we look at Paul addressing the Athenians. You may know this passage in which Paul talks about the Athenian altar to an unknown God.

We encourage you to not only watch the video sermon, but also to reflect, pray and act this coming week.
What are the prevailing philosophies, ways of looking at life, that inform our culture?

Pray that as restrictions ease, people remember that we are socially distancing as much for others as for ourselves. Pray that Australia keeps its head and maintains vigilance.
Pray for countries that are suffering so much more than us. Remember the USA, Mexico, England, Germany, Italy, France, Spain and other countries hard hit by the pandemic.
