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

The Best Online (St Peters) Worship Service Yet?

We are really enjoying being in Australia….the thing that we miss the most are family – both physical and spiritual….most days I walk to Lane Cove library, where I am currently doing most of my writing.  As you can see it is a beautiful walk.  This week as I was walking down in beautiful sunshine I listened to this service from St Peters on the … Continue reading The Best Online (St Peters) Worship Service Yet?

John 11:1-6 – Jesus Cuncator; O the Deep, Deep, Love of Jesus

For some reason the morning sermon did not record but the evening one from Sinclair was absolutely stunning….it was on John 11: 1-16 and entitled  ‘Jesus Cunctator’ (if you want to know what it means listen below! ) In the morning I preached on Romans 5:1-5 “Peace, Hope, Glory and Love”.  Here is one of the quotes from it… “And by the word stand, he … Continue reading John 11:1-6 – Jesus Cuncator; O the Deep, Deep, Love of Jesus

LED 19 – Is May the New Maggie? – Anti-Semitism in Sweden and Westminster – Women’s Football – Wrongful Birth – Sinclair Ferguson on Education – Transmania continues.

Light Engaging Darkness is a weekly post that tries to give a summary and comment on current cultural events, from a Christian perspective.  It’s important to say that these are personal opinions and not an attempt to say this is THE Christian view.  Some things are clear in terms of the Bible – others are not.  All I am trying to do is try to think … Continue reading LED 19 – Is May the New Maggie? – Anti-Semitism in Sweden and Westminster – Women’s Football – Wrongful Birth – Sinclair Ferguson on Education – Transmania continues.

Owen on The Presence of Christ, Sermons on John 10 and Ephesians 2, Song – Psalm 43

One of the great things about John Owen is that he is preeminently a theologian of the Holy Spirit.  This morning I read his comments on the ministry of the Spirit in the church.  Without that we are just dead – whatever our outward form.    I wonder as we go to worship this morning whether we will ask more about the people who are … Continue reading Owen on The Presence of Christ, Sermons on John 10 and Ephesians 2, Song – Psalm 43

The Blind See, The Lords People are Fed, the King Returns – Sermons and Praise from St Peters from 24th Sept

The Bible is a rich feast for the Lord’s people – but normally Christians don’t eat alone – we eat together with a meal prepared by a trained chef – at least that is one way to look at preaching.  Last Sunday we feasted in God’s house.  Sinclair’s exposition of the story of the healing of the man born blind (John 9) contrasted the love … Continue reading The Blind See, The Lords People are Fed, the King Returns – Sermons and Praise from St Peters from 24th Sept

John 8 – The Light of the World, Psalm 121, O For a Closer Walk with God…

Last Sunday I was not able to go to St Peters.  I was thankful to be at home after surgery but I missed my spiritual home!  Thats why the internet is such a gift – I have been able to listen to the sermon and also to share in some of the praise.  Not the same as being there – but a good taste anyway! … Continue reading John 8 – The Light of the World, Psalm 121, O For a Closer Walk with God…
