Term 4, Week 6, 2020 - James 5vv1-6
What do we do with those awkward passages about God judging, slaughtering and condemning us? Should we skip over them? Could they actually be worth our time because of the gritted teeth comfort they bring us? Find out as we open up James 5:1-6. Full disclosure, I'm aware I have actually skipped over James 4:13-17! I'm saving that for next week!
Term 4, Week 5, 2020 - James 4vv7-12
You gotta serve somebody. You may think you're just serving yourself, but James reminds us today that it goes much deeper than just self-serving or self-sacrifice. When we are confronted with that reality it can makes us grieve, but God's grace turns our grief to joy!
Term 4, Week 3, 2020 - James 4vv1-6
As we begin a new and short series on James 4-5 we are considering some of the vital signs of the Christian faith. There should be stark and striking indicators in the life of the Christian, but they often appear in the most ordinary of places like our wallets, our calendars and our to do lists! Today we consider wealth and our wants.
Term 3, Week 8, 2020 - Psalm 13
2020 Fellowship Captains, Meg Graham and Rebecca Scott, have collaborated together once more to reflect on Psalm 13 and how David faced his experiences of suffering.
Term 3, Week 4, 2020 - James 1vv1-5
Are healthiness and happiness the same thing? Why do we naturally conflate happiness with how we feel, especially when the latest neuroscience suggests that the way our brains process our feelings are not always geared towards our best interests? What does God think about about our happiness in relation to our health? Can we find joy when we feel lousy? These questions we consider today as we consider Living with Sickness.
Term 3, Week 2, 2020 - Psalm 38vv3-10 and Colossians 3vv1-4
Who's to blame for my tooth decay? I may not be the best flosser, but tooth decay is ubiquitous amongst humanity, so is it really my fault? Who's to blame for the sickness of our world and what if we can't find the answer within our world? Today we consider the cause of our sickness as God sees it.
