In the second of our series “Learning to walk through walls”, Mark Harbour talks about how the resurrection changes who we are! The invitation to live an adventurous expectant resurrection life (Romans 815-17 MSG) is an invitation to allow the same power that raised Jesus to life to break into our lives and transform us. Transformation from life controlled by the flesh, to a life of the Spirit. It is an invitation to understand what that life can be like and how we can partner with God in the process of spiritual formation.

So how do we become these “people of the peace”, exuding something more than just earthly calm? Nathan Page takes us on a journey to a new perspective, from which we can see that God’s presence really is home, and that’s where we need to start.
