Talks from the team at St John's Diamond Creek.
Jeremiah's Dirty Job || The Weeping Prophet || Jeremiah 1:1-19
What's the worst job you've ever had? Jeremiah had a rough time, being called as a prophet of God as a teenager, he had some hard truths for God's people. God gave him words to "uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant" - most of those actions are pretty negative!
Tim Johnson begins our series "The Weeping Prophet".
Pleasure vs Joy || Songs of Joy || Psalm 97
Psalm 97 has a lot to say about joy. But what is joy? How is it different to pleasure? Kirk wraps up our series Songs of Joy, looking at the differences between joy and pleasure.
A Lifestyle of Praise || Songs of Joy || Psalm 96
Praising God is something that can feel easy when everything is going our way - but what happens when life throws challenges in our path? Julie gives us four reasons to praise God in whatever circumstance we find ourselves in.
Good Posture || Songs of Joy || Psalm 95
We had to learn heaps in 2020. From coughing into your elbow to scanning QR codes, there was lots of change. As we get back to some level of normality and we get to do things again (outbreaks notwithstanding), there's a sense of joy.
This new series looks at three Psalms - songs from the Old Testament - featuring Joy.
Tim looks at worshipping God, through song - praising him, through bowing and submitting to God, and through sitting - listening to God.
The Promised Land || Summer Stories || Deuteronomy 1:19-36
2020 brought challenges and plenty of lessons. Will we learn from those lessons, or just snap back to our lives from 2019?
