Hope For Life

Recorded on Sunday, November 29, 2009

On the First Sunday of Advent in the lead up to Christmas, Francis looks at the nature of Christian Hope.  Yes Christian hope is different from other varieties and may rightly be part of every believer's life.  The key is recognising and accepting the basis for hope and knowing how to live in it.  This sermon is a primer to help us in hopeful living.

Christ The King, Experiencing The Sovereignty Of God Today

Recorded on Sunday, November 22, 2009

This sermon for the day marked as Christ the King was an opportunity to get behind some slightly archaic language and ask, "how might we understand and experience the Kingship of God today?".  Francis shares his own experience and meditation on the Sovereign God revealed in Jesus Christ as perceived and experienced today.  In applying this he shares one discipleship lesson learned about trusting Christ's Kingship amidst difficult circumstances and institutional injustice.

Stone Churches And God's Sanctuary

Recorded on Sunday, November 15, 2009

Christianity celebrates God's outreach to humanity.  Meanwhile humanity has since time began been concerned with where, how and through whom people can meet God.  Under this influence many places on earth have become considered as sacred and certain people deemed essential for people to meet with God and offer aceptable worship.  This was the case in Jesus' day when religion was running strong.  Jesus gave some clear indications that he did not believe this was his Father's desire and often actually represented a distortion of what God intended.
