A Christmas message from Richard Fisher, BRF's Chief Executive

'For nothing will be impossible with God...'

And Mary said to the angel, 'How will this be, since I am a virgin?' And the angel answered her, 'The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy - the Son of God.

And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. For nothing will be impossible with God.'

And Mary said, 'Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.' And the angel departed from her.

Luke 1: 34-38 (ESV)

Holy Habits - an initiative to nurture Christian discipleship

In January 2018, we're publishing a series of books called Holy Habits.

Holy Habits is an initiative to nurture Christian discipleship. It explores Luke's model of church found in Acts 2:42 - 47, identifies ten habits and encourages the development of a way of life formed by them. The habits are:

  • biblical teaching
  • fellowship
  • breaking of bread
  • sharing of resources
  • service
  • eating together
  • gladness and generosity
  • worship
  • prayer
  • making more disciples.

The resources have been developed to help churches explore the habits in worship and other group activities (all-age or age-specific) and live out the habits in whole life, missional discipleship.
