Raising Children God's Way

Recorded on Sunday, December 27, 2009

Two days after Christmas 2009, Francis picked up two stories about children and their families found in the Bible to examine some issues concerning child raising and the place of children in our vision.  He begins with young Sam serving the Lord in the Temple and end with Jesus serving his Heavenly Father in the Temple.  Prepare to be surprised at how differently the Bible considered children and their place among God's people.

Christmas Day

Recorded on Friday, December 25, 2009

Church on Christmas Day can be like walking into a Christmas card scene.  We encounter much of the story in Shepherds, Angels, Kings and rustic features of backstreet Bethlehem.  On Christmas Day 2009 Francis picked up the first detail of Luke's Christmas story which surprisingly concerned ancient tax administration and opens up some Gospel that is still cause for joy today.

Entering The Land Of The Gospel

Recorded on Sunday, December 6, 2009

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is very much about and part of the New Covenant established in Jesus during his first coming.  In the days before Christmas 2009 Francis takes time to look at how Jesus brought something John the Baptist predicted but did not know about in his own experience.  Looking at this helps us realise that Christians are called to live in the Grace and Holy Spirit empowerment of God released in Jesus.  Repentance of sin as preached by John the Baptist is preparation for this but not the substance of the Gospel.
