An Uncommon Love
by Sarah Sedgwick on August 24th, 2023
It has been our privilege over the past few weeks to lead two Bible studies from Mary Comm’s book, “Uncommon Love, a Bible study for parents of kids with same-sex attraction.” Whilst both groups had a different dynamic, it was so encouraging to see the growth and change in the parents who have attended. The study is a comprehensive evaluation of scripture, and how it speaks into the way we love ...

by Sarah Sedgwick on August 9th, 2023
What is TBGL and why should I join?TBGL groups meet regularly to study the Bible together, to share testimony of how God is working in our lives, to wrestle over some difficult topics, and to pray for each other, encouraging each other through the ups and downs of life.
