I almost gave up on a dear friendship that I have enjoyed for over ten years. 2020 was hard on relationships. Perhaps you struggled relationally in 2020 too. Perhaps you lost some friends in 2020 due to all the upheaval around us. This weekend we will go to the scriptures to frame the relational trauma that we experienced. Proverbs chapter seventee…
 
To do or not to do? That is the question this weekend. Often, the quality of our lives is impacted by the decisions we make.

How do we grow in wisdom when it comes to our choices so that we can choose rightly and live with fewer regret…

There are two spiritual tests highlighted in Proverbs: Good times and bad times. These circumstances show our character and our heart status. These tests can also expose sin in general, our idols in particular.

Mother’s Day can be a day that seems exclusive – only relevant to those who have borne children. But it is really a day for everyone – because we all have a mother! The quality of that relationship – good, strained, or non-existent – inevitably has a huge impact on the life of every human being. If you’ve had a great mother, we rejoice and celebrat…
 
This Sunday (in what will be my last message before I head out for my sabbatical) we conclude our series on Who is Jesus? by looking at one of the most Christocentric passages of Scripture.

This Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. It’s Palm Sunday, also known as Passion Sunday. About 2,000 years ago, Jesus was welcomed into Jerusalem as the prophesied, expected King.

Sacrifices had been offered, prayers had been prayed. In fact, the whole village had prayed.
