What is the difference between “the good life” and a great life? That’s what I explore in this sermon on Acts 20:13-38 and Paul’s farewell speech to the Ephesian elders. Yes, count your blessings; but count what truly counts.
Do you ever feel strange because of your faith? What if (a) that wasn’t so bad, and (b) there was a purpose in it? This sermon on Acts 17:16-34 and Paul among the philosophers at Athens provides some answers and direction.
In this episode of The Pulse Podcast I explore Acts 17:16-34, an account of Paul’s time with the philosophers of Athens, being called “strange,” and friction about the resurrection.

In this episode of The Pulse Podcast I explore Acts 16:16-34, the exorcism of a slave-girl, Paul and Silas singing in jail at midnight, conversion, and the power of song to amplify our awareness of the goodness of God.
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.
In this episode of The Pulse Podcast I give an in-depth look at the martyrdom of Stephen, the un-killability of faithfulness, and how this fortifies our faith today.
In this episode of The Pulse Podcast I give an in-depth look at Acts 2:42-47, an inspiring text about the on-fire life of those first disciples devoted to the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, breaking bread, and prayer… practices that continue to sustain us today.
