What About Our Image?

This weekend at Eastbrook Church, I continued our series entitled “Resolved” with a message entitled “What About Our Image?”

The sermon was really an extended reflection on Genesis 1:26-28 and the truth that we are created in the image of God.

You can listen to my message online at the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also subscribe to the Eastbrook podcast here or follow Eastbrook Church on Twitter. I’ve included my outline for the message below:
