Chris

ChrisBefore I became a Christian I was very cynical about God and felt that people who went to church were there simply as something to laugh at. At school I had attended some Christian Union events, again for an opportunity to mock religion. I was also very destructive with vandalism being a frequent activity along with my incessant swearing.


Through a new friend I met I was challenged to re-consider my dismissive approach to faith. This was the first time away from ‘the crowd’ that I seriously considered what God had done for me and where I really stood. By giving God an opportunity to work in my life I found him to be very real indeed. I discovered that I have talents that are creative not destructive. I am now able to see not only the good in people, but beyond that, the potential that they don’t yet see in themselves.
