It’s easy to feel insignificant in a world were one’s worth can be measured in Facebook likes. It’s easy to feel small in a world that values power, platform and popularity. It’s easy to feel weak in a world with so much violence. But there is One who takes the weak, small and insignificant things of the world and turns them into history-shaping change agents.

The Ultimate Guide to Resilient Living
In this keynote talk recorded at Oxford Community Church I share the stories of a KKK leader, a black preacher, a seventh-century farmhand, one of my own most humiliating moments (ouch!) and more to suggest that Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount is the ultimate guide to resilient living. As I explore here (and more fully in the book) this is because:
It begins with an invitation…
… for all the ‘wrong’ people to find life and acceptance
It continues with a calling…
… for little people to become great
It includes a challenge…
… for us to transform evil with love
And it ends with a promise…
… that if we put Jesus’ words into practice, we will be resilient
