Glen Scrivener and the Middle Way re that Sermon

Because I have received so many messages from Christians who are thankful for the time and detail I have been putting in these posts I am going to continue.  Sadly far too many Christians are struggling because their pastors, who are meant to be their undershepherds, are not protecting them from the wolves who seek to ravage the flock.  (others have those who are doing … Continue reading Glen Scrivener and the Middle Way re that Sermon

Right Royal Preaching

I was preaching at a Chinese Presbyterian Church conference in Sydney this morning, and was immediately asked what I thought about the Royal Wedding (which some of them had stayed up to watch the night before). We had an interesting discussion.   I will keep my thoughts for later, but in particular they wanted to know what I thought of THAT sermon.  Again I will have … Continue reading Right Royal Preaching

An Astonishing Sermon (s)

I had the enormous privilege of hearing a quite extraordinary sermon last Sunday.  It was in St Thomas’s Anglican church in North Sydney and was on the occasion of the Anzac service.  Simon Manchester had decided to continue with his series on Song of Solomon – how was he going to fit that into this Remembrance service?  Please listen to it…and you will see what … Continue reading An Astonishing Sermon (s)

God’s Word for Church and Community – St Peters Services 25th Feb with Robin Sydserff, Andy Robertson – 1 Thessalonians 5 and Psalm 82

Last Sunday was a special day for us.   In both the morning and evening there was a real sense of the Lord’s presence.  I thought Robin’s sermon in the morning was a stunningly appropriate one for St Peters (and I suspect for many other congregations), and our evening communion – looking at Psalm 82 – helped a number of people.  Our God is a God … Continue reading God’s Word for Church and Community – St Peters Services 25th Feb with Robin Sydserff, Andy Robertson – 1 Thessalonians 5 and Psalm 82

“What is the end of all church-order, assemblies, and worship?  What is a church?  Is it not a company of sinners gathered together, according to God’s appointment, to give glory and praise to him for pardoning grace, for the forgiveness of sins, and to yield to him that obedience which he requires from us on the account of his having so dealt with us?  This … Continue reading Romans 6 – True Freedom – Praise and Preaching from St Peters
