Last Sunday I had the privilege of being able to preach in St Peters – I realise that for some/many this was too soon after coming out of hospital – but the Lord enabled! It was great to be able to preach on knowing God. Here again is the full service from St Peters –
I loved the singing of Ps 19, Crawford’s new children’s song ‘God Made Me; the info re the camps from Deuan and Paula, the farewell to Lucy, Michelle talking about prayer triplets, the prayers for the sick and mourning, the reading of God’s Word – I love the cries of the children, the confusion re the reading. This is what church is – a glorious varied messy community focused on Christ.
This weeks quote from the sermon is from Calvin (who else?!)
“God is in himself invisible; but as his majesty shines forth in his works and in his creatures everywhere, men ought in these to acknowledge him, for they clearly set forth their Maker: and for this reason the Apostle in his Epistle to the Hebrews says, that this world is a mirror, or the representation of invisible things.”
(if you want the sermon only you can get it from St Peters Website or listen here – I think this is especially appropriate for those who ask how we can know God.
Again if you wish to send me any feedback re the recording of the services it would be appreciated – we are going to extend the experiment for another month before deciding if we should make this a permanent fixture – e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
For some reason we were not able to record the whole of the evening service but here is Hamish’s sermon on Psalm 129 – well worth listening to:
