Sermon podcasts from Together Church in Hobart, Tasmania.
Better Together Making Disciples
The word "Christian" appears in the bible a handful of times, but the word "disciple" is scattered throughout the scriptures. So what is a disciple? How do we make disciples? And how can we be better together at making disciples in the context of community?
This is our final talk in the Better Together series, by Daniel Sih.
Better Together On Mission
Mission is an adventure and we are better together on mission. But in a hyper-individualised society, what does this look like in practice? How can we create patterns and rhythms to collectively connect with friends who don't yet know Jesus?
In this talk, Daniel Sih explains the great mission strategy of Jesus (Mark 6: 6-13) sharing his own experiences of being called to serve as an overseas missionary to Hobart, Tasmania.
Better Together In Community
Most of us are interested in community, but struggle to break out of the isolation of our culture. But life is better together when we share our lives with others in the service of Jesus.
In this new series "Better Together," Daniel Sih shares his experiences of living in a village in Vanuatu and paints a vision for what it might look like to live and act communally as God's people (Acts 2: 42-47).
Wheat and Weeds
We live in a world of dark and light, where things that are good and life-giving are mixed together with pain and brokenness.
In this talk, Daniel Sih shares reflections from his time on Sabbatical, focusing on the parable of the wheat and weeds.
In 2015, Caitlyn Jenner was named Woman of the Year, paving the way for the transgender movement to become mainstream. Since then, gender non-conformity has become one of the defining issues of our age.
But what is transgender and how might we respond to this transgender moment as Christians, in love?
In this talk, we unpack terms like gender dysphoria, transitioning, and gender nonconformity. We explain why we need to respond with love and kindness to transgender people. We also challenge trans affirming culture and its unexpected impact on children, explaining the need for tough love.
What Is Gender?
Men like cars and are good at reading maps. Women are domestic and enjoy cooking. Really? In our culture, there are competing visions for what it means to be a man and a woman. Some are helpful, but many are not.
In this talk, Daniel Sih outlines the biblical vision for male and female. He challenges gender stereotypes, as well as gender fluid ideologies, offering a way forward to become whole-heartedness as men and women in a deeply confused culture.
