    8 Questions on Life, Death, God and Faith, Part 04 - What Is Heaven Like?

    8 Questions on Life, Death, God and Faith, Part 04 - What Is Heaven Like?

    Pop culture overflows with visions of "heaven" - from floating cities with streets of gold to childlike cherubim to the white robed "saved" joyfully playing the harp unto eternity... But these images have little to do with the actual biblical portrait of life in the age to come. In this episode we examine what scripture intends to communicate about New Creation, a world set right. And, even more importantly, how this vision of salvation calls us to life today.

    8 Questions on Life, Death, God and Faith, Part 03 - What Happens When We Die?

    8 Questions on Life, Death, God and Faith, Part 03 - What Happens When We Die?

    Of all the subjects we choose to avoid, death is probably first on the list! We fear it for ourselves, and perhaps even more, we fear the pain of the loss of those we love. But at the heart of the Christian life is a discussion about death and our hope in the face of it. In this episode we examine that hope and the courage it gives us to live generously. Specifically we'll look at the tragedy of death, our confidence in the resurrection, and what happens in the time in between...

    8 Questions on Life, Death, God and Faith, Part 02 - What Does the Bible Say about __Slavery__?

    8 Questions on Life, Death, God and Faith, Part 02 - What Does the Bible Say about __Slavery__?

    Name a hot topic - from abortion to refugee resettlement to gender identity - and someone in the church will declare "what the Bible says" about the matter. (And where there are 2 Christians there are usually 3 passionate, dissonant conclusions!) So how do we determine what scripture is trying to say? Or, to put it another way, how do we build a theology? How do we move from individual passages to a clear sense of God's intent? Here we'll take slavery as a case study and see what scripture is trying to say.

    8 Questions on Life, Death, God and Faith, Part 01 - Why Trust the Bible?

    8 Questions on Life, Death, God and Faith, Part 01 - Why Trust the Bible?

    We begin this series on deep questions with a discussion of the Bible as a source of fundamental truth? Is there any reason to believe it is more authoritative on matters of God than other religious books? Or any books at all? In this episode we look beyond the Bible's self-description as "God's word" and examine the experience of those who wrote it, and our own deep experience of life to see if there is an elemental resonance between the story scripture intends to tell and what we know of life in this age.

    Visions of the Messiah: Sermons for Advent, Part 05 - Christmas Eve 2019

    Visions of the Messiah: Sermons for Advent, Part 05 - Christmas Eve 2019

    Once again, Isaiah speaks of the birth of a child in connection with Israel's deliverance. But unlike the the prophesy of chapter 7 (see Ep. 278), the child described is nearly impossible identify in Isaiah's original context. Indeed, the whole of the poem moves fluidly between past, present and future, as though all three ages are existing beside each other, and all are being saved by means of a coming king. It is a very unique poem, even for ancient prophesy, and one pointing very much to a messiah.

    Visions of the Messiah: Sermons for Advent, Part 04 - Immanuel

    Visions of the Messiah: Sermons for Advent, Part 04 - Immanuel

    "Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Immanuel." Most of us know these words by their appearance in Matthew's telling of the Christmas story, where we tend to focus mainly on the "virgin" part- as though Matthew's point is to demonstrate that Jesus's birth is miraculous. But Matthew's intent goes much deeper, and to understand it we must first hear what Isaiah was saying in his time and place. And when we do, we get an even deeper glimpse of just how much God is with us.

Katonye ,

FINALLY, great podcast.

I’ve been looking for someone to listen to who could perhaps speak my language in terms of the difficulties of my journey. I was so happy to find Kirk’s podcast, he’s clearly very mature in his faith and yet is so open about his walk that even those of us with questions feel helped. I strongly recommend this podcast for hardcore believers and equally, those seeking answers. Keep up the great work!
