Encounters with God

Here at Christ Church we started a new sermon series after Easter looking at Biblical encounters with God and exploring what we can learn from them. Here’s the one I preached this morning on Elijah, and one from a fortnight ago on Jacob. Enjoy!

    Thank you, Peter, for these thoughts on perseverance.With pentecost approaching, I’ve been looking at how one of the qualities the Holy Spirit gave the apostles was dogged determination. Question for you – “patience” or “long suffering” is listed as one of the fruits of the spirit in Galatians, in the original, can this have the meaning of an active perseverance or just the passive type?

Christ the King
Eternal Father, whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord and King: keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace, and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet; who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
Peter Handke

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
