For many life is a little like a conveyor belt, passing through the various stages, good moments, bad moments, and then we 'drop-off the end'. Life happens, and we're sort of in it. For many it is not the life they dreamed of, or imagined for themselves, and some feel trapped in the life they are leading. Jesus said "I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full". Dave explores what Jesus may have meant by this. Is that just about eternity, or is it about now? Is it about a full life, or a life portrayed by glossy tv adverts, or something else? Jesus offers us peace ('Shalom'), which is about 'well being', 'wholeness', 'healing', and 'completeness'. He gives us a choice. Do we choose life?
