Message from Pastor Ian – January 19th

Good Wednesday Southside, I’m thinking that the blizzard we experienced together on Monday had an unexpected blessing. For our children perhaps it was a chance finally to get outside into the snow and get the sleds and shovels out of the garage and put them to work and play. While for some the driving was far from a blessing yet …

Something to boast about!

There is something human about wanting to share good news with others. Perhaps it is a new picture of grandkids or a recent success story from school or work. There is a look on my friend’s face that says there is something to report – and it’s good! I wonder how many of my thoughts of what I’d like you …

What difference would it make to know God well? We’re in the second chapter of Knowing God titled The People who know their God. On this Mother’s Day weekend we’ll turn our attention to a young person who would be the delight of his mother as she, if she got to watch from a nearer distance than this mother did, …

the study of God

C.H. Spurgeon in the 19th Century proposed in a sermon that “the proper study of Christians is the Godhead.” I wonder by which date this comment had already become anachronistic in Western Society and then also by which date it became outdated even among Christians. We find ourselves in a day when this is at best relegated to the Academy …

Knowing God

We will follow the chapter topics and content from the highly influential book Knowing God by J.I. Packer in our current teaching series. The book also provides lovely discussion and reflection questions for readers. Packer introduces the book with a very poignant distinction between two perspectives on the matter of the knowledge of God. He provides two self-evident caricatures in …

sharing

One of the most important lessons in Kindergarten.. learning to share! And is it not one of the hardest life lessons for all of us to learn at any age? It seems to me that one of the first words our children said was “mine!” And our perfect little angels (when they had us all to themselves and could believe …

the Bible

In our journey with the 40 Acts community we come to a wonderful story of a man in a chariot reading Scripture and wondering about what they meant. In our circles (evangelicals) we have deliberately or subtly assumed custody of the Bible. It is our book, our text, our story. We let others see it but reserve the right to …

Saul

A very angry and principled young man watched a stoning with a sardonic nod of approval. Radicalized in his ideology he was obsessed with eradicating heretical upstarts who opposed the true faith as well as schooling those who compromised the doctrine and practice by less than full and devoted adherence. He viewed himself as doing God’s work. He was organized …

Gifted

As our children were growing up and I was involved in pastoral ministry in a few churches over those years it seems we had lots of conversations about “pastors’ kids” and “deacons’ kids” and how that was a recipe for disaster (as our PKs and DKs set out then to prove true!) Our teaching this weekend concerns the very first …

united

Early Christ followers were said to devote themselves to four activities. The verb means to persistently commit oneself to something. They persisted in the apostles’ teaching, to fellowship, to breaking bread and prayer. Was there a time in our lives when we had a more vibrant version of church? When we were more persistent? Which of the four will need …

Out Of My Box (2)

January 16, 2022Speaker: Ian CampbellJohn 21.20This week we will consider the Apostle John as an example of the 2nd enneagram type – someone who needs to be needed. Could the lovely instinct to be a helper possibly have a shadow side?

Sunday, December 19, 2021Speaker: Ian CampbellLuke 1.50,56The end result of the works of God and their focus on the coming of Immanuel is the fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham. Where do we fit in? Are we the descendants of Abraham? How is the Bible’s story the story of Abraham?

Mary’s Song (3) – What has God done?

Sunday, December 12, 2021Speaker: Ian CampbellLuke 1.51-54The weight of Mary’s Magnificat is placed on a list of the things that God has done. What has he done according to this servant? What litany of the works of God would form the lyrics of your song of praise?

Mary’s Song (2) – Wholehearted Worship

Sunday, December 5, 2021Speaker: Ian CampbellLuke 1.46-47Mary sings about her soul and her spirit. Are these synonyms or a differentiation between two aspects of our humanness? How then do these aspects contribute to our religious or spiritual lives? Should we add body to the mix and learn to worship with all of our beings?

Mary’s Song (1) – Why Mary?

Sunday, November 28, 2010Speaker: Ian CampbellLuke 1.46, 48-49Ever since the life of Jesus Mary has been the fascination of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Church and venerating her is central to their faith. The Protestant Church draws criticism and more because of indifference to Mary. Who was she and how do we understand her part in the drama of Christianity?

Back To Church? (3)

Sunday, November 21 2021Speaker: Ian CampbellCol 2.1-3The Apostle Paul expresses his concern for believers who “have not seen his face” or literally “in the flesh.” Does that pique our interest in these days of not having experienced church in person? The same concerns are for those with whom we are together in person or virtually. What are they?
