As we celebrate Palm Sunday, Bishop Stephen Conway invites us to renew our commitment as followers of Jesus. His prayer for all of us is that our pilgrim journey to the cross this Holy Week will open us to the delight in forgiveness, which carries Hosanna from our lips to our hearts.
David the Psalmist was a man who was very conscious of the ways in which he failed God. Rather like Peter the Disciple he could still be used mightily by God. An encouragement for us all!
In Psalm 98 we find many of the attributes of God. A God who has done and is doing 'marvellous things' An explosion of worship with the whole of creation joining in!
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
This is a key theme weaving it's way through the book of Proverbs. One of our Home Groups explores this theme, looking at what it means to fear God and why it matters.
We begin Lent remembering Jesus resisting the temptations to approach his ministry wrongly. To adopt the world's way rather than God's. Every time he stands firm based on God's word; 'The scripture says' is always his starting point. The challenge to us remains the same. If only our epitaph could say 'He/She did it God's way'.
In this talk we explore three different parables in Luke's Gospel. We hear how lost people matter to God and discover how we can help those around us who are lost.
