A King like like the Father (Daniel 7:9-15)David Fleming24th November 201918,694 Kb

The second sermon about kingship. The divinely anointed king ‘like a son of man’ has been equated with the exalted Christ from the earliest days of the church. Here, then, is a very different sort of king—whom we will be awaiting once more this Advent.

A King like the Nations (1 Samuel 8:4-20)Peter den Haan24th November 201918,828 Kb
Description
The first in a pair of sermons about different visions if kingship. Leadership as the world understands it often leads to exploitation and abuse, and that is certainly what Israel's demand for a king like the nations would lead to.

Pervasive prayer (Ephesians 1:15-23)Peter den Haan3rd November 201915,800 Kb
Description
“My house will be called a house of prayer,” (Matthew 21:13; cf. Isaiah 56:7). The church is the body of Christ, and needs to be oriented towards her Lord. There is not a single move of God in all of salvation history which hasn't been preceded and accompanied by prayer. If the church is to thrive, we need to pray.

Progress in prayer (Colossians 1:9-14)Milton Williams27th October 201910,387 Kb

I’m a sinner, you’re a sinner (Romans 1:18-2:6)Louise Morley20th October 201915,009 Kb
Description
A “homiletical sting operation”: turning to the Jewish Christians in Rome, Paul first plays to their prejudices by outlining the utter depravity of Gentiles; then he turns around and argues that his listeners are no better. Are we? Before turning to grace for all, we have to understand the sin of all.

Perspective in prayer (John 8:34‒47)Peter den Haan6th October 201921,175 Kb
Description
Lstening to God. 'On earth as it is in heaven.' The prayer of shutting up: we listen for the words of God, for the voice of the Shepherd (John 10:4). How do we listen? How do we recognise God's voice? In what ways does he speak? This may be an opportunity to touch on the prophetic side of prayer.
