The Two Ways [Sermon]

We live in a world of choices. But Psalm 1 foregrounds a big one. Will we choose the way of the righteous, or the way of the wicked? This sermon introduces a series on the most famous psalms, and explores Psalm 1, the “gateway” to the psalsm.

Bleedership [Sermon]

Leadership is desperately needed — and not just from others, and not just in ‘official’ capacities. You have many opportunities to show unofficial leadership. This sermon on John 19:1-16 explores some critical historical context to highlight the kind of leader Jesus was, and who we can emulate.

How to get the most out of a sermon

If you follow Jesus, listening to sermons is a significant part of your discipleship. They are called a “means of grace” (i.e. they can be a channel of God’s generosity, guidance and help in your life, even via imperfect preachers). So don’t you want to understand, make the most of, and engage with them? This talk provides practical assistance. It’s about being proactive, not passive.

Follow the Light [Sermon]

“I am the light of the world. Whoever WATCHES me…” Oops, nix that. “Whoever FOLLOWS me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Let’s talk about why and how in this sermon on John 8:12-30. The light might not always take you where you want to go; but it takes you where you need to go.

Grace opens doors [Sermon]

“Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” Did Jesus act with all grace and no truth, or all truth and no grace? — or both? This sermon explores John 5:53-8:11 (a text not in the oldest biblical manuscripts) and considers what we can learn from it about opening doors to others.
