In celebrating 10 years of God’s kindness to us at Village Church, it’s fitting that we remember what God has made us: a group of people saved in his Gospel, who are all partners in his Gospel. Doug Wannenburgh from Mitchelton Presbyterian Church shares with us a message of encouragement to us at Village Church, in looking back of ten years as a church, and looking forward to what God has called us to.
In this first session, guest speaker Jono Andrews helps us understand what our hearts are: what the Bible has to say about them, and what it means for our lives in Christ.
(Note: Due to technical issues Jono’s second session didn’t record. Apologies for any inconvenience.)
When we think about Christmas do we think first and foremost about joy? Because God sent his Son Jesus into the world to be with us and bring us his joy. He didn’t come merely to make us “happy” but to deal with all our miserable sin once and for all so that we can know God and experience his invincible, irrefutable joy.
As though a switch is turned on in a pitch-black room, God promised that one day a light would dawn and turn all darkness to light. In the birth of Jesus Christ, this light has dawned, and we can enjoy the light of the world in the birth of this promised child.
After King Ahaz hears about Assyria coming to attack his country, he starts running around in a panic. So God sends Isaiah and his son to remind Ahaz to trust in the Lord, like a tiny, dependent child. But after Ahaz refuses, God promises him a sign anyway: a child born of a virgin, named Immanuel, who would be “God with us,” ultimately fulfilled in the Christmas message, in the birth of Jesus Christ.
Mark Baddeley visits again to help us think through some of the hardest questions of faith: If God is in control, then why is there evil? Why do faithful people suffer?
Dr. Carolyn Russell visits us to help us understand the history of mental health, and some of the ways that we can seek to understand one another in the church, and to walk with others who struggle with their mental health.
God is in control of everything. It’s easy to say, but what it means and how we’re to live in light of this reality can be one of the biggest challenges of the Christian life. But in this talk, Mark Baddeley (lecturer of theology at Queensland Theological College) gives us a few tent-pegs to ground us in this reality and to help us live in relationship with a sovereign God.
Note: There are some audio issues in the second half of the talk, where the quality drops a bit. Apologies for any inconvenience.
