We have been living through a state of emergency perpetually. But we weren’t built for that. In this sermon on Psalm 116 I explore a faithful response to living in the wake of individual and collective trauma.
Creation, it’s beauty, evidence for a kind God, and building common ground with people. This is what I explore in this sermon on Acts 14:8-20.
Just because you can’t see the fruit of your labour, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any. Faithfulness is never wasted. That’s what I explore in this sermon about Stephen’s martyrdom in Acts 6:8 – 7:60.
When you care more about what God thinks than what people think you have reached a tipping point called joy. This is what I explore in this sermon on Acts 5:17-42.
What does it look like to obey God no matter what, and to trust God’s control no matter what? And what kinds of things should we pray for in threatening circumstances? This is what I explore in this sermon on Acts 4:1-31.
What if we were like houses, and what if we needed to safeguard certain load-bearing walls to avoid collapse? In this sermon on Acts 2:42-47 I explore 4 critical and sustaining practices for disciples (then and now).
The Holy Spirit can be neglected. That’s a mistake. This Pentecost sermon on Acts 2:1-41 explains who the Holy Spirit is, the significance for believers then (and now), our basis for church unity and how low-drama spirituality can have a highly dramatic impact.
The one who needs to be in control is. (And it’s not you.) In this sermon on Luke 24:50-03 about the ascension of Jesus, I discuss how his cosmic coronation is very good news for his people today whether in Tokyo, Rio or Oro.
Truth is silenced when witnesses are silent. In this sermon on Luke 24:36-49 I explore what it means to be a witness of Jesus today even when that puts us at odds with majority culture.
How does God work in and through our lives (even when we’re imperfect)? That’s what Jesus answers in the parable of the sower (Luke 8:4-15) and is the theme of this message.
You don’t tend to know where “the end of your rope is” until you get there. In this sermon on Luke 18:35-43, I highlight how God can work in and through the desperate situations in our own lives.
A lot of people are searching, they are dis-content. In this sermon about the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35) I reflect on the implications of the risen Jesus and our longing for contentment.
Easter is good, not because of how we’re feeling, but because of what God is doing. This Easter sermon on Luke 24:-12 explores the most significant event ever: the resurrection of Jesus.
Many people are “barely hanging on.” Is there a word from God to us on Palm Sunday, especially at a time like this? Yes. This sermon from March 29, 2021 provides one from Luke 19:28-44.
What do we know about the end times? What don’t we? This sermon from on Luke 21:5-38 explores these questions and more. One thing is for sure: We should be prepared, not surprised.
After death, the rich man went to Hades and the poor man went to heaven. This sermon explores Luke 16:19-31 and wealth, mercy, and the eternal consequences of certain choices.
The cross was a humiliation and torture ritual. So what does it mean when Jesus says we cannot be his disciple unless we carry one? And what does he mean by “hating” our families? Is he being literal? This sermon explores all this by looking at Luke 14:25-35.
He sets the scene, sets the table, and sets the guest list. Our job is not to rearrange the scene, the table, or his guest
The sinful woman teaches us a lot in this sermon on Luke 7:36-50. The greater you know your sin to be the greater you know your Saviour to be.
Jesus calls us to a high ethnical standard. But what about when we fail? Along with the very serious “blessings and woes,” that’s what this sermon explores. It is based on Luke 6:17-36.
