Christmas Is… Love

Christmas Is… Joy

Date 23rd December 2012  by Ettiene de Witte  Bible passage Luke 2:8-20

Christmas is the time of the year that is normally marked by excitement, gladness and laughter. It would be wrong, however, to assume that these words will mark the experience of Christmas for all people. This may well be a very sad Christmas for many in our community – a fact which leaves us with

Christmas Is… Giving

Date 16th December 2012  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 2:1-12

Christmas is a time of giving. Estimates are that Australians will spend $16.2 billion on everything from festive holidays to Boxing Day Sales during Christmas 2012! (Source: Comm Bank). Why? Why are we so infatuated with giving at Christmas time? Well God started it off and the Wise men set the pattern in place. Jesus

Christmas Is… Hope

Date 16th December 2012  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Jeremiah 29:10-14

Hope. It’s a word we generally use to express a wish or a desire. We say: ‘I hope that it all goes well’ or ‘I hope that I get that job’ to name a couple of examples. Is there more to the idea of hope though? Indeed we find great writers like Martin Luther saying

Thank You Jesus!

Date 09th December 2012  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Psalm 100

One of the first things we were taught as children was to say ‘thank you’ after we have received something. The idea behind this behaviour is usually to acknowledge and honour the kindness or love which was extended from the giving party. As with many other common customs or cultural norms, however, it’s easy to

Out Of The Cradle

Date 02nd December 2012  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Luke 2:1-20

The Kids@Church children will be presenting the wonderful Christmas story as a play and in song. Christmas has a special appeal with the story of shepherds and wisemen, with stars and angels. Add the cuteness factor of a new born baby and you get a beautiful story that captures the imagination of people around the

As you read this passage, you can imagine the disciples arguing about who would be awarded the prestigious award of ‘Christian of the Year’.

Date: 01 March 2015, 17:03 by aiims

Most of us have heard the saying “cleanliness is next to godliness“. It may remind many of us of our disgruntled parents who said it over our untidy bedrooms as children or having heard it as the justification for the Saturday morning cleaning spree in the Christian household. Is it true though? Is being clean

Ruth: God’s Perfect Timing – NO SERMON

Date: 11 January 2015, 17:01 by aiims

The right place at the right time. Coincidence? Chance? Good luck? The wrong place at the wrong time. Bad luck? Fate? Accidental? Is this how we look at the circumstances of our lives? Where is God in all of this. That was the question that plagued Naomi in chapter 1 as she wonders why she

We all have had victories, gifts or blessings in our lives which caused us to exclaim in an exuberant tone of joyfulness the word ‘YEEAAAH!’ or just the simple old, but very loud and emotionally charged ‘YEESSS!’ We all know the feeling when we experience this on the sports field, at work, school, uni or

The Messenger’s Mission

Date: 16 February 2014, 09:02 by aiims

John the Baptist must be one of the most peculiar characters of Scripture. From Mark’s gospel we know he had a strange fashion sense, wearing clothes made out of rough camel hair; we know of his diet oddness, locusts and wild honey. Some might dismiss him as a crackpot, an oddball, or a weirdo but
