If you think you’re caring for yourself when you’re really just comforting yourself, you may be creating more grief than gain. This episode is the audio version of an article I wrote with therapist Sarah Joy Covey for The Toronto Star.
What is puzzling to you is a puzzle piece to God. When things seem just too much, maybe you need to ponder the hugeness of God. That’s what this sermon on Ephesians 3:14-21 explores.
If we don’t comprehend the bigness of God, we’ll underestimate what he can do (and what he can do through us as well). This episode is a Bible Study of Ephesians 3:14-21.
In this episode I answer a question in a Q & A Forum about assisted suicide and the quickly changing landscape in Canada.
Your soul has an appetite — fill it with the wrong thing and be eternally corroded; fill it with the right thing and be eternally contented. This sermon on John 6:25-71 explores this idea as Jesus speaks controversial words about being “the bread of life.”
Jesus’ statement that “I am the bread of life” was divisive. He then talked about the necessity of eating his flesh and drinking his blood. People argued. Some left. Why? What did he mean? This episode is a Bible study on John 6:25-71 and explores the deepest appetites of our souls.
He actually walked on water. And there was a purpose to it. The powerful presence of Jesus is greater than the powerful presence of fear. That’s what I explore (for them then and for you now) in this sermon on John 6:16-24.
It’s one of Jesus’ most well-known miracles. But walking on water wasn’t a party trick. We can learn from both the disciples’ uncertainty and Jesus’ sovereignty. The powerful presence of Jesus is greater than the powerful presence of fear. This episode is an in-depth look at John 6:16-24.
Evangelism is sharing the good news about Jesus. But it can be challenging (and intimidating). Will Han is a Buddhist monk-turned Christian, church-planter and missionary. He has a serious and self-sacrificial approach which flows from his own experience of Christ’s love. This podcast is a talk (and interview) with Rev. Han.
Do you ever wonder if you can make a real difference? You can; but you may be thinking about it all wrong. That’s what this practical sermon on John 6:1-15 explores. It’s the story of Jesus feeding the thousands… and of an anonymous boy.
While Jesus feeds thousands of people, a small boy stands nearby. He trusted him, and watched to see what would happen. This episode is a Bible study on John 6:1-15, the feeding of the 5000. You can make a difference in more ways than you know.
Storms happen. And lately, it seems that they keep getting windier. Well, the key to weathering a storm is who you’re weathering it with. That’s what I explore in this sermon on John 5:30-47.
Life can be difficult. Wait, hold on. Life IS difficult! We’d better have the right captain in the storm. This podcast is a Bible study on John 5:30-47. We uncover a world-changing and life-changing Messiah who will see us through.

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).

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.
