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.

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 …

40 Days of Generosity

We have just embarked on the church season known as Lent. In some traditions this is a time to exercise the discipline of abstinence – we give some luxury up for Lent. That is a good practice indeed, but in keeping with the teachings of Jesus who supported the restrictive discipline of the law, the ten commandments (decalogue) in particular, …

postcards from the future

Do you remember Back to the Future? Marty McFly accidentally travels back in time 30 years to 1955. Imagine that someone from our own future were to return having experienced the future – God’s future. What would she tell us that future is like – the life after life after death? We are left to our own devices in the …

Knowing God – God Unchanging (chapter 7)

Sunday, June 16, 2019Speaker: Ian CampbellPsalm 102.26-27Here is a profound idea – that God does not ever change. So the One presented in the Old Testament and New Testament is still as described. What does that mean for us? We have some theological questions and some practical questions about this. Is the Old Testament God really still the same? Today …

C.H.
