How Then Shall We Love?

Scripture:

  • Acts 11:1-18 Life to Gentiles
  • John 13:31-35 The New Commandment

Sermon:

How Then Shall We Love
What is Love, really? Does it really warrant the centrality it is given in the Christian way? Or is it just sentimental mush? Not if we are willing to reaffirm the truly Christian understanding of Love as Self-giving, Affirming, and Empowering. Not mush, but a challenge to us all!

Digging Deep for a strong future.

Matthew 13:44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field"

John 21:1-19 John appears to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias


This is the theme of Stewardship for the coming year. As we celebrate the anniversary of the building of Robertson-Wesley and the legacy that has been left, we feel called to dig as deeply as our ancestors did into the future of this place where we learn together, work together, build together, play together and deepen our faith as we care for ourselves and all others in the community and the world through the use of our talents and treasures. We are the stewards of Robertson-Wesley, what shall we build for the next 100 years?



This was an whole family worship which was very interactive, and thus there was no formal sermon recorded.

Living Faith with Conviction!

Acts 5:27-32 Peter speaks before the Sanhedrin.
Psalm 150 Praise God with the sound of trumpet!
John 20:19-31 Thomas doubts until he sees Jesus himself.

Today we hear the story of how Paul put his life on the line. He stood strong in his convictions and
obeyed God rather than any human authority. For Paul, to obey God is to have faith, is to trust in God. In contrast we hear the story of Thomas who would not trust and believe until he had physical proof. This is our challenge today, we need to discern how we are to act and live out our faith, how will we in today's world live our faith with conviction in the face of derision and judgement?
