    "Patiently Praying" (Reg Lewicki - 11.26.2023)

    "Patiently Praying" (Reg Lewicki - 11.26.2023)

    Faith In An Uncertain World (Week 3) - Habakkuk 3v1-19 - Habakkuk chapter 3 is a prayer that can be our prayer when we find ourselves in a world of injustice. It is a prayer that remembers who God is and trusts that He is at work. It is a prayer that speaks of hope in spite of what is happening around us because of a resolute faith that God will make things right in HIs time. It encapsulates ch 2:4 of what it means for the righteous to live by faith - to stay the course regardless of the difficulty around us.

    "Settling the Score" (Reg Lewicki - 11.19.2023)

    "Settling the Score" (Reg Lewicki - 11.19.2023)

    Faith In An Uncertain World (Week 2) - Habakkuk 2v2-2v20 - Habakkuk’s concern in the first chapter is that God is using a people more wicked than Israel to bring judgment. How can God be ok with this? In the second chapter God responds to Habakkuk, stating that all will be held to account for what they have done. In particular He announces 5 woes on Babylon for their wicked and sinful ways (Economic Evil, Unjust Power, Violence, Immorality, Idolatry). These woes are a sobering reminder of God’s holiness and that how we conduct ourselves individually and corporately matters.

    "What in the World is Going On?" (Reg Lewicki - 11.12.2023)

    "What in the World is Going On?" (Reg Lewicki - 11.12.2023)

    Faith In An Uncertain World (Week 1) - Habakkuk 1v1-2v1 - The book of Habakkuk is a conversation between the prophet and God, centred around the prophet’s dismay at the injustice and violence he sees among his own people. Is God paying attention? What will He do about it? This sermon reminds us that God’s justice is sometimes brought about through unlikely sources but that He is still paying attention and will hold everyone to account.

    "Life In The MESSiah" (Aaron Westera - 10.29.2021)

    "Life In The MESSiah" (Aaron Westera - 10.29.2021)

    Life in the Mess (Week 3) - Ephesians 4v30-5v2 - There are many bad models of forgiveness that often capture a small portion of the practice, but usually are missing the whole view from scripture. Forgiveness is one step, albeit a very important one, in the process of reconciliation, and to skip any of the steps would shortchange the model God has given us.

    "Forgiveness" (Reg Lewicki - 10.22.2023)

    "Forgiveness" (Reg Lewicki - 10.22.2023)

    Life in the Mess (Week 2) - Matt 18v21-35 - Scripture teaches us a lot about forgiveness! In our calling to model forgiveness like Christ, we understand that it is only possible by being rooted in Him. Forgiveness as a movement towards peace is for everyone towards everyone and tied to our own relationship with God. Not only did God model forgiveness but Jesus also taught us how to confront each other when an offence has occurred.
