Isaiah 40:6-8 – God's word stands forever

For several lines Isaiah is told to bluntly remind his hearers that they are mortal.  How does this belong in a message of comfort, and why does he contrast our mortality with God's word standing forever?  (Neville Reid, 8 December 2019)

Isaiah 40:1-5 – Comfort my people

God's message of comfort was a surprise at more than one level, and still speaks comfort today for his people on the rocky road of life.  (Neville Reid, 1 December 2019)

James 1:12-18 – Good gifts from the good God

To be a hopeful Christian, you need to be persuaded that God is good in daily life.  How then should we look at all the hard and strange things that stress us?  (Erik Pattison, 24 November 2019)

1 Peter 3:15 – Be ready to give a reason for the hope that is in you

Peter expects our hope to make a difference so that even unsympathetic people will ask us what makes us hopeful.  Let's take a look at what our hope is.  (Erik Pattison, 17 November 2019. This recording stopped a little before the end of the talk – please write to us if you would like notes of the ending.)

1 Corinthians 15:58 – Not in vain

"Your labour in the Lord is not in vain."  This is a message about hope.  How does it relate to the the Old Testament wisdom book of Ecclesiastes, which starts with "Everything is vanity"?  (Erik Pattison, 10 November 2019. Includes Q&A at the end)

Acts 2:32-41 – Save yourselves from this corrupt generation

Peter urgently commanded his countrymen to know the truth, repent, and be baptised.  This call to conversion is the start of the apostolic tradition; we must still obey it, be changed by it and make it known today.  (Neville Reid, 27 October 2019)

Ephesians 2:19-22 – Nourished by our Roots – Tradition

The power, value, danger and importance of tradition.  (Erik Pattison, 20 October 2019)
