Hearing about, experiencing and responding to the love of God.

The Prayer: Bread

Paul Bickley continues our series on the Lord’s Prayer.

Our problem isn’t usually that we come to God with a long list of requests. Our problem is usually that we don’t trust God to meet any needs at all. Like Israel in the desert, the prayer calls us to look to God as our provider.

The Prayer: Kingdom

Paul Bickley continues our series on the Lord’s Prayer.

The Lord’s Prayer is like our oath of allegiance. As we pray it we commit to and work for a future where God rules in perfect justice and peace.

The Prayer: Hallowed

Paul Bickley continues our series on the Lord’s Prayer.

We often love God not for who is he but for what he gives us.
To pray the Lord’s Prayer is to make God the most precious thing in your life.

Pastor
The Prayer: Father

Paul Bickley begins a series on the Lord’s Prayer, speaking from Matthew 6:5-15.

The premise of Christian prayer is that God is first and foremost our Father, before he is our Judge, Lord, King or Creator.

How to change the World: Self Control

Paul Bickley concludes the series on the Fruit of the Spirit by looking at self-control.

True self-control goes beyond self-discipline. It comes not when we lay our hands on the controls of our life but when we give them up to Jesus. We become a vice-regent and co-pilot in our own lives, trained to exercise freedom.

How to Change the World: Gentleness

Paul Bickley speaks on gentleness from Matthew 11:25-30.

Jesus said that he was gentle and humble in heart. He wasn’t weak or shy, but his strength was directed for love.

Pastor
How to Change the World: Kindness

Paul Bickley on the story of Ruth – a story of radical, transformative kindness.

The kindness breaking through into Naomi’s life is God’s kindness. But for our kindness to be more than a random act now and again, we have to be rooted in that same kindness of God in Christ. He is the one who left his own country to live with us in ours. He is the one who takes on all our debts. He is the one who came to renew many lives.
