Today's Message

In this moment of quiet, Lord, may Your Grace envelop us as You suffer the pains of our sins that we may be saved. Please give us the strength to right our wrongs, to see good in our enemies that we may draw closer to them and to forgive the inexcusable. Diminish our sense of self-righteousness. Eradicate our pride. Open our hearts that we may feel Your presence. Open our eyes that we may understand Your love for us to do what is good and right in Your sight. Amen.

Teaching Series on the Book of Jeremiah by Bishop Rennis Ponniah

April 2018

The Old Testament book of Jeremiah is a 2,500-year-old prophecy that is as relevant to our life today as it was to the Jews at the time.

It is message from and about God who works out his purposes through covenants.

Though more than 500 years before Christ, Jeremiah knew about the arrival of the New Covenant in Jesus that would change everything. The Jews in Jeremiah’s time were either longing for the Messiah to come or, the majority had given up hope and forsaken their God.

But God had not forsaken them.

In the same way, Christians all over the world look forward to Jesus’ second coming but most people in the world couldn’t care less. Jeremiah’s prophecy gives us great encouragement to live faithfully in a world that is in turmoil.

Bishop Rennis spent part of his sabbatical in 2016 to study Jeremiah at a deeper level. God powerfully spoke to Bp Rennis and he now passes the message on to the church in 10 sessions, delivered in five lectures at St Hilda’s Church.

GLORY


Listening to Sermons

18 Jul 2021

In my conversations with Christians about sermons, I observe that most people have expectations of the role and responsibility of a preacher and the message. There is a wide spectrum of expectations.

They revolve around the length of the sermon, its relevance, applicability, whether it is attention grabbing, and its biblical accuracy. Then there are those who want an emotional uplift only. Then others look for more information and knowledge about God. Others want a pep talk on the power of positive thinking.

Hardly have I come across a person who expresses the responsibility of a listener. It is always the preacher’s responsibility.

For a sermon to be effective, the message together with the messenger and the listener have to each be responsible. In this article, the focus will be on the listener’s role and responsibility.

God’s story to us, unfolded in the bible, speaks on the role and responsibility of both. In Genesis, God gave a perfect set of instruction to Adam and Eve. They chose to violate it.

Later, we read about how In spite of relays of prophets warning Israel, the nation slides into idolatry. They come under the judgement of God and are exiled for 70 years.

Christ taught His disciples about the parable of the Sower. He spoke of the various types of soil ie ‘listener’. Finally in Revelation the message to each of the 7 churches ends with these words: “He who has ears, let them hear what the Spirit is speaking.” – Revelation 2:7,11,17,29;3:6,13,22;

How, then, should we listen to a sermon?

The sermon is only part of a worship service. The other key components are the confession, praise and worship, the reading of the Word, intercession, sermon, the sacraments of the Holy Communion and the dismissal.
