Short Talk

Disordered Trust and Vision


1.       Living in a Disordered Trust: the Egoism Trap
This talk examines Egoism as a cultural value that promotes humans to the highest place and how this has infected the modern church. To overcome this aspect of our worldliness, we must recover the knowledge of Christ’s supreme glory.

2.       Existing in a Disordered Vision: the Influence of Naturalism
Naturalism is a cultural value operating in a closed universe perspective that shuts out the supernatural. This session will examine how the contemporary church’s accommodation has resulted in a loss of spiritual vitality. This Pre-forum seminar addresses the following topics:

Andrew Fellows was appointed pastor of a church in Bradford, West Yorkshire in 1988 where he served for seven years. In 1995 his family moved to the English branch of L’Abri Fellowship, where they lived and worked for 21 years. From 2011 to 2016 Andrew was the chairman of L’Abri International. Now based in Cambridge, Andrew is the pastor of a newly formed church alongside his work of speaking and writing. He has a special interest in reaching sceptics and encouraging followers of Christ to develop the life of the mind so it includes the whole gospel to the whole world with all of its implications. IVP recently published his book, Smuggling Jesus Back Into the Church: How Not to be Worldly. Andrew is married to Helen. They have four children and three grandchildren.
