Sermons from February 2018
Paul in Athens went out on the streets and met people where they were, challenging their ideas and telling them about the real God they were missing out on. This too is our calling today.
Jesus heard God’s voice: ‘this is my son with whom I am well pleased‘. Saul also heard God’s voice: ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?‘ but it was a voice which transformed him. God still speaks today and if we will only listen we too can hear his message and be transformed.
Paul was accompanied at the start of his Ministry by Joseph, nicknamed Barnabas or Son of Encouragement. Rana looks at the ministry of Barnabas and the qualities that made his quiet and unassuming work so important to the early church.
Paul, the original persecutor of Christians, had a complete change of heart and mind on the Damascus road. Barry relates stories of others who have also had a radical about turn in their lives and what lay behind it.
