    A new Anglican diocese, bishop and church in Australia - with Peter Palmer

    A new Anglican diocese, bishop and church in Australia - with Peter Palmer

    There are now two expressions of Anglicanism in Australia. 
    The first congregation of the new Diocese of the Southern Cross started at Beenleigh in Brisbane last  Sunday and the Diocese’s first bishop Glenn Davies will be appointed on Thursday. 
    Other congregations are expected to join in the next few months. 
    The split in the Australian Anglican Church follows the failure of the Bishops of the National Church to support the denomination’s traditional teaching that marriage is between a man and woman. 
    It follows similar splits in the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Brazil. 
    Peter Palmer was the minister of St George’s Anglican Church in Brisbane until serving under Brisbane Archbishop Phillip Aspinal became untenable.
    Peter will pastor the new Southern Cross Anglican Church of Beenleigh and Logan.
    Peter says his decision to leave the South East Queensland diocese, where he had pastored St George’s Beenleigh for six and a half years, was provoked by the national bishops’ failure to endorse biblical marriage and Archbishop Aspinall’s presidential address at the synod in Brisbane. 
    Archbishop Aspinall’s address was described by one of his ministers as ‘hurtful, hypocritical and hateful’.  https://bit.ly/3dAVHuJ
    Peter Palmer had served the Bush Church Aid society for 16 years, having been involved in indigenous ministries in Wyndem WA, church and mining ministry in Coober Pedy, SA and FIFO chaplaincy to miners.

    Repentance is what's needed - Peter Jensen on Lambeth

    Repentance is what's needed - Peter Jensen on Lambeth

    The Anglican Communion is broken and needs to repent.

    Provinces of the Anglican Communion are now free to develop their own teaching on sexuality, according to the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

    There will be no contending for the faith (cf Jude 1:3) or withdrawing fellowship from the sexually immoral.

    Archbishop Justin Welby arranged the Lambeth Conference so that delegates didn’t get to vote on the most contentious issue of the day - sexuality.

    Rather he wrote to delegates announcing that Lambeth 1:10 still applied, but there would be no consequences for ignoring it.

    Former Archbishop of Sydney and former General Secretary of Gafcon Peter Jensen joins us to review the confusion in global Anglicanism in the wake of Lambeth22.

    Pastoral care for the Christian with gender incongruence or attraction to the same sex - with Sam Allberry

    Pastoral care for the Christian with gender incongruence or attraction to the same sex - with Sam Allberry

    How do you best assist a church member who discloses that they are experiencing gender incongruence? 


    How do we show compassion and care with people where you disagree with the choices they might be making? How do we lead others in the church to do the same? 


    What advice do you have about seeking to provide an environment that does not exacerbate a person’s distress. 


    How do we rid our churches of any bullying, ridicule, mistreatment, and abuse of gender non-conforming people. 


    How do we differentiate between compassion for the person, including an understanding of the distress of their situation or condition, and agreeing with, celebrating, or validating any treatment protocol for transition. 


    Sam Allberry is a pastor, apologist and author.  His latest book is ‘What God has to say about our bodies.’ (https://bit.ly/3OFp5wF)

    Helping Grandparents win grandchildren to Christ with Ian Barnett

    Helping Grandparents win grandchildren to Christ with Ian Barnett

    Being a grandparent is such a blessing, however, comes with a great responsibility!

    How can Christian grandparents be more intentional about their faith and leave a lasting legacy of faith in their grandkids and peers?

    How do we, as pastors, minister to those older than us? How might we encourage them and teach them how they can minister to their grandkids, whether or not their kids are Christian?

    Ian Barnett is the former senior pastor of Figtree Anglican Church in Wollongong, and is the founder of the Australian National Grandparent Conference happening in September.  (https://ngmlegacy.com.au/)

    Getting masculinity right - with Al Stewart

    Getting masculinity right - with Al Stewart

    There is widespread confusion about what it is to be a man. 

    Across history, there has been and still is a widespread confusion about what it is to be a man and how to be masculine in a non-dominating way. 

    Masculinity is fundamentally about how men use their power. When it is done in a healthy way, masculinity will serve and bless those it reaches. 
    Al Stewart says we should value masculinity when it is rightly understood. A truly masculine man makes the people around him feel safe. Things become more stable because he’s around.
    Al has a new book out this week, The Manual: Getting Masculinity Right.

    Sharpening our evangelistic preaching - with Ross Ciano

    Sharpening our evangelistic preaching - with Ross Ciano

    As we proclaim God to others, we don’t always get it perfect! So then, how do we proclaim Him as we ought? How might we rectify the mistakes we make and improve our evangelistic preaching? 
    Each talk we do is different, meaning that our preparation should be too. We ask Ross for the best approach various kinds of evangelistic talks and be creative when presenting sin?

    Ross Ciano is senior minister of Sydney’s Marrickville Road Anglican Church and brings us thoughts on this today!

MikeSheed ,

Very helpful ministry resource

I find episodes of The Pastors Heart helpful and engaging to anyone involved in Christian ministry.

A broad range of topics relevant to pastoral care are covered by the podcasts, such as supporting people experiencing anxiety, relationship breakdowns and gender identity issues.

Thoroughly recommended!

A wonderful pastoral resource

I’ve only been in the Anglican Church for a couple of years, but am continually amazed at the quality of resources available. This is one I really value. I have shared many episodes with those who I thought would find them helpful, and have been often helped myself to understand a new viewpoint. Thanks for all the effort put in, and for the wide variety of interviewees.
