After the March 15th service, the churches closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we began live online services.

BAIT AND SWITCH

Sunday, Mar. 1, 2020

It strikes me that the nature of temptation is ‘bait and switch’. There’s an attraction that lures us in with much promise but then turns around and bites us….  – Harry

THE REVEAL

Sunday, Feb. 23, 2020

This is about the day when Jesus took 3 disciples up a mountain and was altered in appearance so that he shone like a bright light. They call this the ‘transfiguration’. God was cluing in the disciples as to who this really was. Great clues were given to them, but what are our clues?  – Harry

LIABILITY

Sunday, Feb. 16, 2020

We all probably realize that if we deliberately kill someone we’re in big trouble. We’re ‘liable’ to judgment. Jesus takes this a lot further, explaining that we’re liable for being angry at each other and for calling each other names. For those of us with anger issues this poses a challenge.  – Harry

BLESSED

Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020

In what are called the ‘Beatitudes’ Jesus essentially paints a picture of human life that is rather the opposite of what we’ve been taught to believe. We think the rich are blessed – Jesus says it’s the ‘poor in spirit’. We think the happy are blessed – Jesus says it’s the bereaved, the sorrowful.  – Harry

lighting up

Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020

The Bible uses the metaphor of light and darkness to describe the difference between good and evil, right and wrong. This explores that a bit more deeply.  – Harry

THE HANDOFF

Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020

One of Jesus’ disciples, Andrew, was first a disciple of John the Baptist. How different would that be? John fasted, ate locusts and wild honey and lived in the desert. Jesus went from village to village, party to party, adventure to adventure.  – Harry

THE KICKOFF

Sunday, Jan. 12, 2020

Jesus began his ministry by submitting to the baptism of John. This was fairly low-key and very humble on the part of Jesus. John said to him, “You should be baptizing me!” By doing this Jesus honoured all the previous revelation of God (see Old Testament) as represented by John. God showed his presence with a gentle demonstration of power and a strong affirmation of his Messiah.  – Harry

gRACE UPON GRACE

Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020

The first chapter of the gospel of John tells us that “from his (Jesus’) fullness we have all received grace upon grace”. That’s quite a statement. Everyone receives gift upon gift and provision upon provision. For those who trust in Christ, the Word made flesh, there are forgiveness, mercy and spiritual gifts (grace) piled on top of all the other kindnesses.  – Harry
