During my regular Bible reading I was surprised to see the phrase "... his eternal purpose ..." Eph 3:11
Cannot remember every noticing this phrase before. As Paul mentions this in passing, it is obviously something the church at Ephesus was familiar with.
So thus, I have started reading and looking into this a little more.
Interestingly, this has drawn my attention to some of the things that the "church" has emphasised over my lifetime, plus some things that it has remained somewhat silent about.
I invite you to explore this further with me.
