  • Learnings From Peter: Rewards And Suffering

    Contributed by Dr. Madana Kumar, Phd on Jun 2, 2021

    The issue of pain and suffering is much known. Yet, we struggle to make sense of it or react to it the right way. Let us learn from Peter on how not to, and how to, address this issue.

    Learnings from Peter : Rewards and Suffering Past 15 or so months have been a series of struggles for many of us. It all started with the Wuhan virus and then it went through the cycle of restrictions to complete lockdowns to partial opening up to elections to the second wave to the complete more

  • The Successful Failure Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 6, 2021

    Peter was the greatest failure in his abusive power. And yet we see that he not only survives, but he does so quite successfully. He is able to stay on top as the leader of the 12. He does everything wrong, and still comes out a winner.

    Apollo 13 was one of the biggest flops in the history of our space program, and yet it was also one of the most celebrated. Can a catastrophic failure also be a colossal success? Just ask the three astronauts of that ill fated flight. It was 1970, and they were on their way to the moon when an more

  • A Declaration And A Rebuke Series

    Contributed by Donald Whitchard on Mar 31, 2021

    So far in reading about the life and ministry of the Lord Jesus, we see that He has been active for two years or more, preaching the Word, teaching the people, performing miracles of healing, deliverance from demons, feeding crowds, stilling storms, and showing His mastery over the elements by more

  • Confession Of Peter And Jesus Series

    Contributed by Rev. Andrew B Natarajan on Mar 7, 2021

    Matthew wrote the Hebrews to understand that Jesus of the Nazareth was the Messiah sent by Yahweh. He developed his Gospel from exclusion to the inclusion of the Gentiles. The confession of Peter is the center of the revelation.

From this week onwards we are journeying with Christ from Galilee to Jerusalem. Our ultimate station is more

  • "Jesus, The Exclusive Savior”

    Contributed by Clarence Eisberg on Feb 24, 2021

    The consensus- that some things were right others wrong is now replaced by a new "trinity": worship tolerance, celebrate diversity, praise pluralism, equity not equality. Woe to the man who dares speak against the New Trinity. A story: confession, a fable. John Stott, quote.

    In Jesus Holy Name Lent II February 28, 2021 Text: Mark 8:27,29 Redeemer “Jesus, The Exclusive Savior” We live in a “postmodern” age. If that term is new to you, it simply means that we live in an age in which more

  • The Church - God’s Essential Plan For Us

    Contributed by Thomas Andrufski on Sep 19, 2020

    What is the Church? Why is it so important to attend? Can God use me if I just stay home?

  • Who Is He, And What Is He To You? Series

    Contributed by Delwyn Campbell on Sep 7, 2020

    Contributed by Clarence Eisberg on Aug 22, 2020

    Jesus reminds the disciples at Caesarea Philippi that the "Gates of Hell" will not prevail against the church and the confession of faith.

  • Unity Of The Church - Sermon For Proper 16 - Year A

    Contributed by Ian Bullock on Aug 19, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    An challenging exploration of what it means to be the church here and now. This is a re-work of a much older sermon of mine, which feels as relevant now as it did years ago. The analogy was used from another source, although I cannot now remember where that source is.

    In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen. Throughout the Gospels we see Jesus involved in situations where a number of profound questions are asked. Questions such as Pilate asking what is truth, or what is power, and today our Gospel leaves us with another when he asks his more

    based on 3 ratings

    During the lockdown we have realised how many are real friends, how many are fake friends, how many have called us often enquiring about our families, health, jobs, and how many were really cared and supported in their difficulties and pains during this pandemic, COVID-19.
