Who am I? Why am I here?

These fundamental questions are often submerged beneath the surface of our busy lives and pursuits. We have been conditioned to believe that we create our identity and significance from the stuff of life work and its associated status, material possessions, pleasurable activities and even celebrity for its own sake.

We have been created in the image of God; this is our identity. We live our lives before the face of the One who is both our Father and our King; this makes everything we do significant.
These two talks were given at a Day of Renewal at the Christian Renewal Centre in Rostrevor, N. Ireland.
