Sermons from October 2018
To find life in all its fullness is to follow Jesus, and to do that is to follow the word of God as revealed in the Bible.
James and John ask Jesus whether they can sit at his right and left hand in his kingdom, and he responds by asking ‘can you drink the cup I drink?’ Such a simple question, like the questions that are asked at baptism, yet revealing that accepting Jesus is not to accept the easy path through life.
This morning’s readings, from Amos chapter 5, calls on Israel to act justly, and Jesus talks about the difficulties of the rich young man. Rana looks at these readings from three angles: A call to review your theology A call to challenge our economic systems A call to transform yourself
With two candidates for baptism today, Rana looks at what we mean by a sacrament – an outward sign of an inward blessing.
