  • The Fields Are White Unto Harvest

    Contributed by Joseph Neil Adams on May 26, 2008
    based on 7 ratings
     | 12,085 views

    The harvest is waiting for us - but will get out there to risk being in the harvest field?

    So Jesus sends His disciples out to the mission field. Luke 10:2 tells us that ‘He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’ You know people this gospel truth remains, nothing has changed. ...read more

    based on 8 ratings
     | 1,706 views

    Do we understand our calling to be Christ to the needy & poor? Francis of Assisi & Mother Theresa are illustartions in this message that links the parable fo teh sheep & goats to the Easter Emmaus story.

    Luke 24:13-35 Matthew 25:31-46 Isaiah 53:1-3 This Emmaus scripture is a strange one isn’t it? Friends walking with not just a close friend but their leader; yet despite knowing him so well they fail to recognise Him. Yet it is not just a case of the risen Christ being so different to the ...read more

    In parts Matthew’s passion & death narrative is read throughout the service which had the sermon very near the end & was followed with an extended period of silence.

    based on 2 ratings
     | 1,336 views

    A message about why the Spirit gave those first Christians the ability to speak in other languages.

    Pentecost #3 - Tongues Acts 2:1-21 Some people find the story of Pentecost quite difficult & disturbing - why? I think because the Bible says that the Holy Spirit (HS) came & the disciples heard saw & experienced the HS. They are all gathered on the day of Pentecost in prayer & HS came both ...read more

  • Easter - Ghosts

    Contributed by Joseph Neil Adams on Feb 24, 2008
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,656 views

    A message thinking about life, death, resurrection & ghosts because that lie the devil has used about Jesus not being really alive but just a ghost must be dispatched back to hell.

    Ghosts Luke 24:36b-48 Perhaps because we hear this Easter story so often we loose some of the power. We loose something of the sense of how fantastic & ridiculous an idea this truly is - Jesus dead now alive. How can that be because dead people stay dead, we all know that to be true don’t ...read more

  • Easter Day

    Contributed by Joseph Neil Adams on Feb 24, 2008
    based on 13 ratings
     | 3,540 views

    Mark’s original ending has been seen as controversial yet it is so powerful & real & full of challenge.

    The Easter resurrection story in Mark offers us a different slant in a way on old story. It offers us an ending where the feeling is not spontaneous joy & praise, but fear & confusion & doubt. It is a ending that has troubled the Church for generations, indeed it made the people who put together ...read more

    Contributed by Joseph Neil Adams on Feb 24, 2008
    based on 74 ratings
     | 6,643 views

    Everybody that first Palm Sunday misunderstood what was going on. Will we see the real Jesus or go along with the crowd & see Jesus like the latest political hero?

    Palm Sunday - All the way John 12: 12 - 19 Obviously when you made your way here today you knew that we would be thinking about Palm Sunday, so it is no surprise that our reading retells the story of that amazing day. I chose to focus though on John’s story because of the text we have today ...read more

    Just a woman John 4: 4-26 I know as a man this is going to sound patronizing & that’s not my intent, but it’s hard being a woman isn’t it?!

    Transfiguration means change or metamorphosis, & clearly it was an event that informed Peter’s theology, & that of the early Church. So what was it that the early Church saw because though they attached great importance to it, we in the modern Church don’
