The Effects Of Easter: Seeing And Believing

I’d like to introduce you to someone that, I think, has gotten a bad rap in the Church.  Everyone thinks of him as a quivering, unsure, back-of-the-bus follower of Jesus; the guy with wee-tiny faith; full of doubt disciple(ish)….. Thomas. Reality is – the guy was one of the most […]

The Effects Of Easter: When Jesus Calls Your Name

Questioning God: “How long, Lord?” – sermon podcast

Ever had times when you threw up your hands in frustration, or perhaps in distress? You were struggling with another person whose behaviour didn’t change, didn’t improve, didn’t help whatever situation you were at the time.  You flung out your hands and blurted out, “How long are you going to […]

The Peacemaker: God’s version of royalty compared to ours

When you think “Royalty” – what comes to mind?  Harry and Meghan?  Elizabeth and Philip?  Golden spoon in mouth?  Out of touch?  Body guards?  Palace? Elite? Where in the world do we get such an idea? Perhaps from the fact that this is exactly how it is with royalty.  And […]
