    1 Year Later: Living in a Pandemic with Joy in Times of Uncertainty

    20/03/2021 Duração: 42min

    We don’t know how much longer this pandemic, and the accompanying social unrest, will last. We were all hoping that by the beginning of 2021 life would start to return to normal. That, clearly, has yet to happen. So, here’s the question: How do we not just survive the coming season – but rather come out the other side of it with a new inner strength and fortitude, and above all, spiritual formation in the the person of Jesus? Is there a way to travel this road of pain together with joy? Join us as we pause to reflect this past year and begin looking forward with joy.

  • Matthew 5:33-37 - Integrity

    Matthew 5:33-37 - Integrity

    18/03/2021 Duração: 37min

    In Jesus’ time, making promises one could not keep was prevalent. Lack of integrity was seen as something acceptable and Jesus says lack of integrity has no place among God’s people. Jesus taught that if you say you are going to do something, do it and if you can’t say no. Live with integrity. Thats it. Simple, profound, but so challenging.

  • Matthew 5:31-32 - Divorce and Remarriage

    Matthew 5:31-32 - Divorce and Remarriage

    08/03/2021 Duração: 51min

    Attitudes about marriage in culture have been shifting in a downward trend and is disappearing fast. There are many reasons for this. One reason among many why people choose not to get married is divorce. Many come from divorced backgrounds. Others have parents in a bad marriage and many don’t want that life. Whatever the reasons are for not getting are not always for godly reasons but broken ones. What does all this mean for followers of Jesus? How do we interact with the realities of marriage in a broken and fallen world? How can we commend commitment in an age of divorce?

  • Matthew 5:27-30 - Objectification

    Matthew 5:27-30 - Objectification

    26/02/2021 Duração: 46min

    We live in a sex driven society. The church has responded to it in one of two ways: condemnation or accommodation. The problem with condemning or accommodating views regarding sex culture is that it assumes we are passive victims of desire, and in both views it places all blame for our struggle “out there” in the culture. Jesus’ words on from the sermon on the mount offers us a more nuanced view. All the warnings in the Bible about sex are designed around the idea that sex is good and the warnings are there to protect something that is powerful and fragile – it is not designed to suppress freedom.

  • Matthew 5:21-26 - Anger and the Way of Honor

    Matthew 5:21-26 - Anger and the Way of Honor

    23/02/2021 Duração: 33min

    One of the things Jesus teaches is that calling someone a fool/idiot is closely related to anger, in that it represents a destructive attack on one’s character and identity. Jesus warns us that the person who violates another person made in God’s image in this grievous way is liable to the hell of fire. Followers of Jesus are commanded to treat others with dignity and respect rather than giving anger a place in our human interactions, especially with other Christians. All devaluing of people has no place in the kingdom of God.. How do we respond to Jesus' ethic of honor in the midst of a shame and outrage culture?

  • Matthew 5:17-20 - Which Bible Did Jesus Read?

    Matthew 5:17-20 - Which Bible Did Jesus Read?

    16/02/2021 Duração: 37min

    So many Christians don’t know what to do with the Old Testament or how to apply it. Sadly, this results in having a low view of the OT and thats unfortunate because Jesus loved the OT and because in it we see the very character of God. If Jesus is who he claims to be, then his opinion should be very influential in shaping our own. Jesus had a high view of Scripture that included all of the Old Testament. He loved and obeyed it. Like Jesus, followers of His are called to the same care and ethic.

  • Matthew 5:13-16 - Cultural Protectionism or Cultural Engagement?

    Matthew 5:13-16 - Cultural Protectionism or Cultural Engagement?

    09/02/2021 Duração: 34min

    In this teaching we explore ways we can bring gospel influence in our cultural moment. As Christians we follow a Savior who suffered, so we must expect to suffer. How do we respond when we find ourselves in those difficult spaces? In this teaching, Jesus shows us the way of influence.

  • Matthew 5:1-12 - Who Really is Blessed?

    Matthew 5:1-12 - Who Really is Blessed?

    26/01/2021 Duração: 31min

  • Advent II

    Advent II

    15/12/2020 Duração: 35min

    2020 is coming to an end and who knows what 2021 will bring but I think we can all agree its been a bruising and difficult year. Perhaps this year, more than ever, you need no convincing that the world is not right. You can’t really long for the better world Jesus promises until you admit the messed up parts of this one. Advent is a chance to do this. The word “advent” means “the arrival.” In advent we wait for the arrival of Jesus not as a baby but as judge who will come to make all things new…the one who will restore our humanity. Advent is an invitation for you to slow down and reorient hope around Christ.
