Denied!

Preachers often take a passage like John 18.15-18, 25-27 and tell us, “Don’t do that!” They’re right, of course, but how can we put a positive spin on this?  What lesson can we learn from Peter’s denial that will encourage us in our faith?  Listen, or watch, and find out.

SONGS OF L(AM)ENT: Cleft For Me

What does it mean to be hiding in the cleft of the Rock?  In this message, I draw the parallels between the hymn “Rock of Ages” and the story of Elijah on Mount Sinai in 1 Kings 19.1-18.  Give a listen, or watch it on the church’s Facebook page (for which you don’t need a Facebook account).

BEING THE CHURCH: No Turning Back

The last part of Paul’s final letter, 2 Timothy, might be of the sort where you might say, with Brother Maynard in this Monty Python clip, “Skip a little, brother.”  But as we find out in this message, it’s worth paying attention to for the life of the church!

Have a listen to this message based on 2 Timothy 4.9-22.

BEING THE CHURCH: Today, Two Thousand Years Ago

There are some prophetic words in the Bible, and there are words that seem prophetic but simply reflect the reality of the time they were written.  What we see in 2 Timothy 3.1-9 reflects a little of both.  The apostle Paul was writing about his own time, in the first century, but his words sure seem like the reflect our own day!
