The subject for this quarter is the Church in the Community.
And that is very much where we are, and where we need to be. For we can only make a difference if we are engaged with those around us.
For what is the gospel? We can all mouth the words about telling others about Jesus, even quote texts like “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
But if we don’t mean it, if it doesn’t change us, if our lives don’t show God, we haven’t got the Gospel and the truth is not in us. We are tongue-tied with nothing to say. All the other versions of the gospel are frauds because they replace the essential truth with something different. The gospel is about a person—a God who loves you, and whom you love, and who wants to love all his misguided, floundering children. The good news is not to be equated to healthy living or a caring community or anything else, however laudable. It’s not about the church. It’s not about ourselves.
It’s about God.

Sabbath School on the Move meeting December 2015
Speaking at Sligo Church Sabbath School Teachers’ Meeting:
Through a free, conversational study of the Scriptures Dr. Jonathan Gallagher invites you to participate in an exciting analysis and discussion of the Sabbath school lesson in the context of the character of God and in the setting of the Great Controversy
This supportive ministry seeks to make the Sabbath school study a relevant and important part of spiritual life by providing actual class discussions in audio format, accompanied by
study sheets. In this way class members become far more involved in discussing vital spiritual issues,particularly focusing on the nature and character of God in the setting of the Great Controversy. By centering the focus on a ‘free, conversational study of the Scriptures,’ Sabbath School On The Move contributes to both the growth and development of individual members and also a wider and more dynamic involvement in the fundamental message and mission of the church.
Recorded at different locations and also online, Sabbath School On The Move is made available free via the Internet to all, providing a rich resource for those teaching the lesson as well as those wishing to be more deeply informed about the subjects presented by the lesson. It is particularly useful to those who for various reasons are not able to attend Sabbath school in person, and provides a “virtual community” to members who can then experience the sense of belonging and participating in the wider church around the world.
