The Transfiguration: a sermon from 3rd March 2019

The impetuous Peter wanted to make the most of the situation, so he could hold onto it for longer. As humans, we like to make it comfortable for us, to hold on to something we don't want to let go of. However, God was in control; the purpose of the visit from Elijah and Moses was to reassure and guide Jesus - we can't control Jesus: rather, we must be open to the answers God gives us and be open to understand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcT2KfOaYXA

Jesus and the Storm: a sermon from 24th February 2019

Jesus as an adult has absolute trust in his father. He knows that God the Father is there, for him. The disciples? Like most of us get scared. We all face ups and downs in life, and we can't escape fear and hurt - and in those moments, how do we react? Are we still able to see the truth Jesus points to - or does our fear get in the way of the truth that God is with us? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feYSb0iOkT0

Enslaved by doctrine: a sermon from 17th February 2019

Do we try to add to our Christian faith? We've been rescued from slavery by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ - yet do our own rules and habits enslave us? We have freedom in and through Christ with a sign in the Holy Spirit that we're a child of God. However, is it easier to argue about aspects of doctrine than to accept that God sent Jesus to set us free? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAv0Fn3Zg-o
