Lean on Me
10:30am, Sunday, July 5, 2020
Series: General
Duration: 13 mins 21 secs
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”.

The Augsburg Confession Today
10:30am, Sunday, June 21, 2020
Series: General
Duration: 14 mins 46 secs
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]
