Time to Eat Right
8:30am, Sunday, December 17, 2017
Duration: 19 mins 21 secs
Counting down our Great Awakening theme. After “Time to pray” and “Time to wash up,” it’s “Time to eat right.” Our diet is fundamentally important to our wellbeing. “We are what we eat.” The same is true spiritually for us. For Great Awakenings to happen and be sustained, they must learn to be properly fuelled. Today we look at how. [Organ/Choir - Advent 3]
Time to Wash

Passage: Mark 1:8
Duration: 24 mins 23 secs
If last week we learned that the frontline of awakening is prayer, today we learn that we continue with repentance. It’s time to wash. What does that mean? John the Baptist said, “I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” The word baptise literally means “to dip, immerse, wash.” How does that apply to us? To those around us? Come, let us learn. It’s time to wash. [Organ/Choir - Advent 2]
