This Sunday: Collected, One by One

Sunday 11 February - 9:30am

There’s a verse somewhere in the middle of Isaiah that says, “…you shall be collected, one by one….” Someone recently showed me this verse and pointed out that it has important implications for how we approach our relationships with other people and with the Lord.

This Sunday: Your Life is Not Your Own

Sunday 4 February - 5pm

Who does your life belong to? We know that at least some of it belongs to the Lord so we make an effort to give Him His due share. But what if all of your life, every last bit of it, belongs to the Lord? At first this might seem like a constraining idea. But in fact it can be freeing. We do not have to balance out what is mine and what is His; when we give it all to Him we free ourselves to live our best lives possible.

Rebuilding the House of the Lord, Part 3: Taking it to Heart

Sunday 28 January - 9:30am

When we have made the Lord a priority and started to work on living better we often expect things to change dramatically. Sadly, that is not the case. Changes in our external lives are an important beginning but we will not see real change until the change happens in our hearts. When the children of Israel built a house for the Lord not just as a place of worship but also as a state of mind, then the Lord could begin to bless them again.

This Sunday: Rebuilding the House of the Lord, Part 2 – Expectations

Sunday 21 January - 9:30am

When the people obey the Lord and rebuild the house of the Lord it doesn’t meet their expectations of what it should be. The Lord’s response to them, through the prophet Haggai, can be very helpful for us when the results of our spiritual efforts aren’t quite what we think they should be.

This Sunday: Darkness and Light

Sunday 17 December - 9:30am

This Sunday: Witness to the Light

Sunday 10 December - 930am

Before Jesus could begin His ministry He needed John to prepare the way first. The world at the time was in such a bad state that people could not have taken in Jesus’ teachings if John had not first prepared them and filled them with hope for Jesus’ coming. John did this by bearing witness to Jesus’ Light, so that when that light did come people could recognize it and embrace it.

This Sunday: Carol Sing: To God be the Glory

Sunday 3 December - 5pm

Singing is one of the most powerful ways to express joy, and this is no more true than at Christmas. The teachings of the New Church tell us that going back thousands of years, the people in ancient times delighted in singing songs about the Lord’s future coming and the salvation He would bring. Today we do the same as we not only look back to the Lord’s birth but also forward to His birth into our own lives. After a short talk on the joy of singing to the Lord we will join together to celebrate the joy of the Lord’s Coming and the Christmas season in general.
