Wisdom and Wisdom

July 17, 2016 – Rod Wilson

Wouldn’t it be fascinating if we could listen to Jesus’ brother talk about things he heard from his brother? What do you think he would tell us?  What would he emphasize?  Through the work of the Holy Spirit we have this opportunity from June 5 through to September 4 as we study the Book of James together.  Each Sunday we will have the opportunity to engage the book both by listening to the preacher but also by interacting with the preacher and each other so stay tuned for interactive sermons not monologues.  This Sunday, Rod Wilson will be speaking from James 3:13-18, “Wisdom & Wisdom.” The key personal question is: How do you exercise spiritual wisdom in all of your endeavours?

Practicing Resurrection: Care for God’s Creation

May 29, 2016 – Markku Kostamo

Understanding that the earth is the Lord’s points to the Lordship of Christ over all creation, over everything – and this in fact is what mission is all about: proclaiming the Lordship of Christ in our messy, day to day lives including our relationships and not least of all our relationship to creation. Simply put, the Earth is the Lord’s and we are His caretakers or stewards. So our activity in caring for the planet, stewarding all that he has made is not driven by guilt. But rather it is out of obedience and a posture of gratitude that we take care of what he has made. So to live lightly, to steward creation well, is just a normal part of Christian discipleship. It is not some sort of fringe activity or fad. ( Markku Kostamo)

Jesus and Creation

When we think about Jesus most of us can easily form a picture in our minds of Jesus the Healer, or Jesus the Son of God, or Jesus the Friend of Sinners. But what about Jesus the Environmentalist? What comes to mind? Probably not much. In today’s message we will explore how the theme of creation care is prominent not just in the Old Testament and the writings of Paul but is woven into the very fabric of Jesus’ life.

This will be our second week in the Practicing Resurrection in Creation Series. We are grateful to have Leah Kostamo, Director of Communications at A Rocha, sharing with us this morning. Unfortunately, the sermon audio is not available on-line in. Please see the pdf of the sermon draft notes – “Jesus and Creation” by Leah Kostamo

Practicing Resurrection in our Relationships: Seeing the Face of God

May 8, 2016 – Kim Pierrot

There are no “ideal” families in the Bible, thank goodness. In both the Old and New Testaments, we find vignettes of family life that seem familiar to those of us living in the real world where there is love but also squabbling, where there is loyalty but also deceit, where there is human sin, and also God’s mercy. On this Mothering Sunday, we talk about what it might look like to “Practice Resurrection in our Relationships” by way of considering the reconciliation between Jacob and his brother Esau in Genesis 33. Here, in this magnificent story of forgiveness, we get a glimpse of what it might look like to participate with God in bringing life out of death in our relationships. (Kim Pierrot)

Practicing Resurrection in the World

May 1, 2016 – Kim Pierrot and Nashisa Team

 “Mission is not a human activity undertaken out of obligation to the great commission, or even simple gratitude. It is God’s own mission in which we have been included. It is what God is doing to bless all the nations through the resurrection of Christ and the outpouring of the Spirit. Mission work is not motivated by the need of the world but by the sending God who calls and empowers.” Paul Stevens
This morning as we commission our Nashisa team, we will consider the ways in which the risen Christ sends each of us to “practice resurrection” in our world, and we will hear about a few ways in which Cappers are already doing exactly that. (Kim Pierrot)
