Inside January's edition of Direction Magazine
“Even if we already know those New Year resolutions won’t last, there is a deep yearning inside many of us to take time out to reflect and, if possible, replenish our lives for what is to come.”
This month we cover IMAGINE – the process of shaping Elim’s next 100 years. Also we talk to three key players in church planting around the world. Plus Rachel White tells how Jesus helped her beat anorexia nervosa, we look at how the Balfour Declaration helped shape modern-day Israel and Mark Greenwood gives advice on answering questions about faith. Plus much, much more, all in Direction Magazine January 2017 issue.
