Search for the Hero Inside Yourself


This summer at EBC we’ll be talking about all kinds of heroes – Superheroes, heroes of the present day, heroes of modern history and ancient heroes of the bible.

I don’t know about you, but I have had (and still have) lots of heroes. Real-life heroes of music, sports, leadership and, go on then, some fictional heroes too.

My list includes (in no particular order) –

The Fonz
Bruce Springsteen
John Riggins (I know… “Who?”)
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Muhammad Ali
Abraham Lincoln
Winston Churchill
Abs Dumbuya

… and a bunch of bodybuilders and powerlifters you’ve probably never heard of!

Who are your heroes? What is it about them that captures your imagination and makes you admire them? What was their finest hour… and most difficult moment? What are their strengths… and their weaknesses?

In our summer series, we’ll be exploring some heroic characteristics as we delve into the bible to find some stories of heroes in action. We’ll look at men and women, strengths and weaknesses, triumphs and struggles.

I believe we can learn a lot from our heroes and that their example can inspire us to better ourselves. 

I hope you’ll come along as often as possible to our services at EBC this summer. You can come dressed as your favourite hero if you like (“No capes!”) but rest assured you don’t have to! Just come as you are and let’s search for the hero inside ourselves together.

I’m off on hols until the end of July but am looking forward to seeing you at EBC very soon. Until then….

To infinity… and beyond!

God bless,
