Honour your parents! (Exodus 20v12, 5th commandment)

Find out who said: “Youth today love luxury.  They have bad manners, contempt for authority, no respect for older people, and talk nonsense when they should work.  Young people do not stand up any longer when adults enter the room. They contradict their parents, talk too much in company, guzzle their food, lay their legs on the table, and tyrannize their elders.” And when they said it! You might be in for a surprise. 

You can listen to this morning's sermon at the link above, and the resources mentioned are here and here

Have a break, have a Sabbath! (4th Commandment) Exodus 20:8-11

In 1924 Eric Liddell, the flying Scotsman, was set to win Olympic gold in the 100m, but he refused to run because the heats were being run on a Sunday. He was a Christian and for him Sunday was the Lord's Day - a day of rest and worship.  Was he right to refuse to run? What does it mean to "remember the Sabbath and keep it holy"? Does this still apply to Christians?

You can read Exodus 20:8-11 here and our second reading from Matthew 11:25-30 here and listen to the sermon at the link above.

Waiting for rescue. (Exodus 12)

At the moment some are waiting for their exams to be over, perhaps you can remember what it was like? The nervous anticipation, but once they were over it was the start of the holiday! 

God's people had been waiting for 400 years to be rescued,  Exodus 12 is the night before the great rescue, what would it feel like? You can read Exodus 12 here and listen to at the link above. 

 

Where was God when THAT happened? (John 11v1-44)

Where was God on April 7th when the chemical weapon attack happened in Syria? 

Closer to home, where was God on August 29th 2016 when Alan Hawe murdered his family?

Or maybe it's something more personal. For all of us at times we ask "Where was God when THAT happened?" You can listen to this morning's sermon as we explore where God was when Lazarus died in John 11. The Bible readings can be found here, and the sermon listened to at the link above. Do get in contact if it raises anything you'd like to talk about further.
