"In Christ, all are equal. Is that fair, God?" God's grace and forgiveness are unlimited, and are extended to everyone - even the most 'undeserving'. He doesn't abide by our rules of fairness, but looks with equal favour on everyone.

We all know that 'sinking feeling' in life. Peter experiences it when he takes his focus from Jesus to his own strength and fear. But Jesus doesn't abandon Peter, nor any of us. Immediately, Jesus reaches out to save. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/EihmvC8w5jQ) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 10]

There are times in life that we feel overwhelmed, over-tired, under-prepared for difficult situations. We are like the disciples who were faced with feeding a huge crowd and who say “Lord, send them away”. Jesus wonderfully equips us with what we have as disciples, and says, “You go and feed them.” (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/SBnoykO3HDo) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 9]

Jesus' stories gave a new picture of the Kingdom of God: not a military conquest, but an invaluable treasure offered in love to each of us. Accepting God's gift gives us confidence to share it with others. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/VPpUlqw_2Qo) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 8]

A new life brings joy and expectation, even in these difficult days. The wonderful imagery of today's psalm reminds us that, even when times are hard, God's gracious love holds us. We are not alone.

Jesus' simple story (a parable) about a sower really speaks about our hearts as we hear the word, the good news of the Gospel. And now it is our turn to continue spreading that seed, that good news - even though the conditions of the human heart are pretty much unchanged.

Sometimes it seems that its one step forward and two steps back during this COVID-19 time of restriction. We humans know what it is to carry heavy burdens of many varieties. The apostle Paul knew the impossible burden of sin and proclaimed, “What a wretched person I am!” To people who carry burdens and who are weary comes Jesus, with an invitation to come to him to find rest and to learn from him. Jesus comes to you and me, bringing this same invitation. When we are carrying a heavy load, he says “Lean on me”.

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 4]

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]
