Do the Gospels accurately preserve what Jesus said and did? Haven’t they become distorted? How can we know with any confidence? This podcast (audio and text) gives you 5 important points to consider.
People balk at having a Judge. But we do. Would you rather have one Judge who is for you, or a hundred judges who are against you? That’s what this sermon on John 5:19-29 explores, along with the question about whether we can trust that the Gospels accurately preserve Jesus’ words.
Can we have confidence that Jesus said what the Bible says he said? In this podcast I explore that question and also dive into John 5:19-29 and Jesus’ role as Judge (and why that is good, liberating news).
It’s a disorienting and tiring time. What if a confidence that God continues to work helps you to take the pressure off? That’s what I explore in this sermon on John 5:1-18.
This podcast is a Bible study on John 5:1-18. An invalid is healed, Sabbath-police get angry, Jesus’ words invite both fury and joy. The fact that he does God’s work no matter what might be a soul-refreshing word you need to hear in this weary chapter.
The episode is a conversation with Jennifer Harris and Julie Cunha at Westminster Church in Barrie on Easter. We talk about hope through hardship, and encourage you to also see the ways God works – even when life is hard.
Mistakes pile up. So do sins, failures and misplaced priorities that have hurt you and others, and have gone against God. But guess what? You are still lovable. Jesus died for you knowing you. That’s what this Good Friday sermon explores on John 19.
Crowds can be fickle. One day they’re yelling “Hosanna!” to Jesus and a few days later they’re crying “Crucify him!” Where are we in the mix? Are we fickle, or faithful? That’s what this Palm Sunday sermon explores with John 12:12-19, along with four practical helps toward faithfulness.
Crowds can be funny… and dangerous. What is going on with waving palms, frenzied people, and a Savior on a foal? That’s that’s I explore in this Bible Study podcast on John 12:12-19 at the start of Holy Week.

Jesus saves. But from what? And FOR what? In short, more than you think on both accounts. This sermon on John 4:27-42 seeks to expend our understanding of what a Saviour is as we invite him to work in the troubled parts of our lives.
A saviour is one who saves. Pretty obvious, right? Wrong. This episode is a Bible study on John 4:27-42 and explores Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman, and the broader implications of what a Saviour is and does.
They call it the information age. But to me, it often feels like we have too much data and too little wisdom. This episode is a talk with Claude Cox who has spent years with the elderly. Here, he shares some wisdom that has been passed on.
What do you seek? The weekend, more friends? God SEEKS people to worship him “in the Spirit and in truth.” So that’s clearly what we should be shooting for. But what does it mean, and how do we do it? That’s what I explore in this sermon on John 4:1-26.
God cares about HOW we worship. And no, this isn’t about style. It’s about worshiping him “in spirit and truth.” In fact God “seeks” people to do so. This episode is a Bible Study on John 4:1-26 and the Samaritan woman at the well and “living water.”
What is spiritual warfare? Why do some avoid it? Isn’t the Bible just ‘out of date’? Who is our enemy? Does possession still happen? How do we win?! I discuss all this and more (put on your seatbelts) with Jon Thompson, author of Deliverance.
Power, independence and control are in. Humility is out. But why? It’s endangered. It’s also the recipe for true greatness in God’s eyes. This sermon explores John 3:22-36 and offers three applications for our lives.
