Prioritizing Your Priorities

The call of the book of Haggai is for the people of God to consider their ways and re-order their priorities.
“I believe, every now and then, it is necessary for us to do a bit of self-examination. Haggai says to people of his time to ‘lay your heart on the road’. In other words bring your hearts into the open and examine what you are doing. Times have changed but the need to examine our priorities, and our hearts, remains.”
Chris Edwards, Bishop of North Sydney

John Connell, husband and father of three, grew up in an environment where drug and alcohol use was normal behaviour.

By the grace of God John turned his back on substance abuse and in his late 20’s gave his life to Christ. Some fifteen years later, however, John, still a Christian and with a young family, found himself back in the grip of alcoholism. By the grace of God once more, John found recovery from alcoholism and has been sober and growing in his Christian life these past sixteen and a half years. As a member and leader of Overcomers Outreach, a ministry dedicated to helping anyone who struggles with any kind of addiction, John shares his experience, strength and hope with others so that they may also be liberated from the destructive grip of compulsive behaviour and/or substance abuse.
