In Christ's Hands: Unveiling a new reality

Mention the Book of Revelation and you open Pandora’s box. From conspiracy theories about new world orders to secret codes that need to be cracked, from spiritual battles to lakes of burning sulfur. But at the heart of Revelation is a message of comfort and grace as God allows us an opportunity to peek behind the curtain of eternity and get a glimpse of the world and our present as it really us. It’s an encouragement to remain faithful, whatever we see or experience, for there is not one moment from now to eternity that we are not held In Christ’s hands. So join us for this seven week series as God unveils a new reality.

Revised edition of Luther's Large Catechism

"These new editions reveal an increasing awareness that the translation of a text must not only be accurate, but also appropriate to the character and style of the original. This is of particular importance for the translation of Luthers catechisms, which were after all written for the benefit of children and ordinary people, as Luther puts it in his Preface to the Large Catechism in 1529, and which were based on his sermon series on the catechism in Wittenberg. Luthers German is direct and colourful. It flows from his pen with dynamism, reflecting the living situation of the preacher addressing a congregation. Luther is not afraid to use the occasional colloquialism, or even to disregard the normal rules of grammar. Some sentences suddenly change direction, and thoughts are not always completed. Often a variety of ideas crowd in on one another within a single sentence. Above all, Luther is inventive and authentic, as far as linguistic expression is concerned." - Author, Friedemann Hebart

Music for the journey

We are all travellers on the journey of life ...

The paths we travel don't always look the same. Some are smooth and straight, others are winding and bumpy. But no matter what type of road we find ourselves on, Jesus meets us along the way. He invites us to walk with him from wherever we are at, to places we never imagined possible.

"Fellow travellers, let these songs inspire you on your journey as you meet the one who alone can illuminate your path with certainty and hope for eternity."

Travellers are a five member band from Sydney, Australia with a passion for helping people to have honest conversations with God and travel deeper in their personal relationship with Jesus.

You can buy HOPE ALIVE on CD for $14.99 (AUD) from Australian Christian Resources HERE.

Grow course - How can they hear?

Have you felt the nudge of the Spirit to share God’s word with a group of people? Would you like to know how to read the text, understand the text and build a bridge for people to also understand God’s Word?

Would you like to explore whether God is calling you and preparing you to publicly share his Word?

Then register for “How can they hear…”

Over a series of nine weeks, we’ll explore how to go from reading the Word, to understanding the text, and then presenting it in a way that the Holy Spirit uses to encourage, strengthen and grow his people. You will even get an opportunity to write and present a sermon in front of a small group of people who will be cheering you on! 

Join us in person at Epping or online, Thursdays at 7.30pm. Please RSVP (register) if you plan to attend.

Today's verse & thought to ponder ...

24

MAY

ACTS 17:22-23

Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship—and this is what I am going to proclaim to you.
