October 2014

In October we conclude our look at the prophesy of Jonah. Although he is one of the minor prophets his story has major lessons for us about the purpose and mission of God. We have our 8th Anniversary this month - eight years of God's faithfulness.
John 13:34-35 - A NEW COMMANDMENT
Sometimes it is hard to show love to believers with whom we have differences on matters of church practice, or theology or doctrine! This can be a real issue for us in the diverse Christian community in Siem Reap as well as within our church. At CFSR, we are an international, inter-denominational church with believers from over 30 different countries and many different denominations. We need to address issues and sort out the essentials (on which we need to be of one mind) and the non-essentials (on which we can differ). During (& following) our Anniversary Service on 19th October (with our visiting speaker Pastor Jon Jainga - from Philipines) we will explore what unity in Christ should look like.
