From Strength to Strength

Passage: Psalm 84:7
Duration: 16 mins 23 secs
How would you summarise the Christian life? Does “strength to strength” come to mind? Maybe not, but that is how the Good News of Jesus should come across to us. Today we look more closely at Psalm 84:7 to discover how this kind of life might be possible. (This address followed a performance of Bach's cantata BWV 113 "Lord Jesus Christ, O highest good".) [Organ/Choir - Pentecost 23]
Wrestling With God

Duration: 19 mins 4 secs
We all struggle in life. We get anxious about the future. We wrestle with God and we want to know his will. God allows us to struggle with him, because he wants to guide our path.

Two of Jesus' most popular parables, which we might call the stories of the found sheep and the found coin, give us a picture of God as relentlessly searching for us, calling us back into relationship with him.
