For some of our favourites from all these collections, see the panel at the lower right of this page.

Psalm 37 – Waiting for the Lord: Do not fret

This Psalm tells us several more things about what waiting on God really means.  For a start, those who love God have a choice: wait on him, or fret.  (Erik Pattison, 15 March 2020.  Do read the text first, as the reading is not included in this recording: Psalm 37 NIV)

Psalm 27 – Waiting for the Lord

Waiting is unpopular, but wonderful things are promised to those who "wait for the Lord".  What does it really mean and look like?  (Erik Pattison, 8 March 2020. Note: Erik's voice at the start of this recording was a bit hoarse from our cheerful singing, but he soon recovered.)

Psalm 96 – Rejoicing in God's justice

Second talk on God's justice: a look at what is so wonderfully good about it, that we long for it and all of creation will rejoice in it.  (Erik Pattison, 23 February 2020. Includes a long Q&A again)

Romans 12:19 – "Vengeance is mine, I will repay"

Vengeance and justice are deeply intertwined.  The prophets tell is that it is also a necessary element  in our salvation.  How has the death of Jesus reshaped these realities? (Erik Pattison, 16 February 2020)

Luke 1:35 – The Holy Thing within Mary

Gabriel announced to Mary a "holy thing", which grew to be a holy child.  (Erik Pattison, 25 December 2019)

Luke 2:1-7 – Jesus' quiet Christmas

The angels must have made a loud noise – but only a few saw them.  Back in Bethlehem, it would have been mostly quiet for Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus.  God does not do "spectacle"; but his eternal Word was with mankind in a new way.  (Erik Pattison, 22 December 2019)

Isaiah 40 and Luke 1v5-25 – The Voice from the Presence of God

Gabriel speaks as one who has come from the presence of God. He foretells the birth of John, who will be a voice in the wilderness, and speak with authority from God like Elijah.  We need such voices today.  (Erik Pattison, 15 December 2019)
