Jesus made a surprising statement about welcoming. Anyone, he said, who welcomes a disciple of Jesus is also welcoming Jesus himself; and in doing so, welcomes God the Father. As disciples, we are carriers of blessing. Let's explore what this means. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/tLhdmCTqN3Q) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 43]

In every generation, we need to stand strong for our faith. 490 years ago, it was lay theologians who set out the Augsburg Confession, accepted by princes gathered in the Diet of Worms. Ten years ago, it was minority Christians in Malaysia campaigning to free up shipments of Bibles in their own language. Now we need to stand against the evils of racism, and the abuse of God's Word. We must show how love comes to life. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/4v80roLQf-s) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 3]

At Pentecost, when devout Jews were celebrating the first fruits of the harvest, the Spirit-filled disciples began to spread the Good News of Christ, and 3000 were added to their number that day alone.

The two disciples walking to Emmaus were so downcast they did not even recognize who was walking with them (at least until he broke bread with them). Similarly, we can be so absorbed in the daily crisis that we lose sight of our Lord. But he is with us!
