Depths of Anguish, Heights of Assurance
No matter what we’ve done, and no matter how desperate our situation, God’s mercy gives us hope in our time of need.
“Although we are weak and broken human beings, Jesus presence is there in the midst of the storm with us to rescue us and lead us on. Moreover, he calls us out upon choppy waters, into a life of risk and faith. He is the one who equips us to be brave and to do the impossible. Matthew shares how this is true in our personal circumstances and also in stepping out in Mission.”
Bishop Harold shares some of his thoughts on the nature of the presence of God. How we are to revere it, seek it and enjoy being in God’s presence. 2 Samuel 6:1-19
The wilderness is a lonely and precarious place where we have to learn how to survive. It is a time of trial and testing. And God puts us there to teach us crucial lessons about character, strength and trust.

Our guest speaker, Rev Norman Jardine, examines the Passover and how Jesus’ set his face like flint towards the Cross.
Jesus gives a sobering message to his disciples of the Destruction of the Jerusalem temple and the End Times. However like every good coach he has the strategy and words of encouragement to see us through to victory.
God showed incredible unmerited favour in choosing Israel to make a covenant with. As a people, they consistently showed appalling ingratitude towards God. Despite this, God remained persistently patient sending prophets and ultimately His Son to call them back to Him. We see that the behaviour of Israel is a microcosm of humankind as a whole. Will you choose the Son or reject him like the Jewish leadership?
Zacchaeus apparently had it all, but all he felt was emptiness. Jesus calls us by name into a relationship with Him where we can find the real meaning and purpose of life.
