God Shows us His Heart on the Cross – Mark Sayers (30/03/18)
On Good Friday, we remember Jesus on the Cross, His vulnerability of rawness begins to expose who we really are and what we did to Him. Despite this, we are not met with judgment and wrath, Jesus takes all of the this on Himself. He died on the cross in The Way Through the Wild which reveals that God loves us. It’s an undeserving love but God still embraces us looking the shortfall of humanity square in the eye.
The God of Act 2 – Mark Sayers (1/04/18)
We celebrate The Risen King! The world begins again through the sacrifice of His Son, who has paid all of our debts. The God of Act 2 encourages us to not be afraid, go and spread the good news.
You Have a Will – Sarah Deutscher – (25/03/18)
This week Sarah speaks about our will and how it can only be in alignment with God’s will through prayer, trust, submission, and obedience.
The Power of the Tongue – Sarah Deutscher (18/03/18)
Your words shape your world! This week, Sarah speaks about the power of the tongue. She gives us a number of antidotes using the example of Jesus, who knew when and when not to speak, and when He did speak, His words brought healing.
The Freedom of Simplicity – Mark Sayers (11/03/18)
This week, Mark shares how the practice of simplicity is being emptied in order to be filled again by His will and His Heart and how calling is found being in close proximity to God, which can we can only do when we live simply.
Secrecy: Counter-Cultural Training for the Soul – Ryan Wallis (04/03/18)
This week, we hear from Ryan Wallis, Red Apprentice Minister who speaks from Luke: 6:45. Ryan shares how we need a healthy hidden space, as God wants to bring us in vertical alignment with Him. Secrecy cannot coexist with pride, it empties us of pride and allows us to flourish.
Solitude and the Healing of our Divided Hearts – Mark Sayers (25/02/2018)
This week, Mark shared about Jesus’ time alone in the wilderness. He quotes Blaise Pascal: “The sole cause of a man’s unhappiness is that he does not know how to stay quietly in his room.” Pascal shows us that solitude reveals our fallen hearts, torn between madly diverting ourselves from own lostness and our desire for the lost Eden. Thus, we cycle between restless distractions and distracted resting.
The Anointing Rides on Obedience – Mark Sayers (18/02/18)
This week, Mark kicks-off our new Lenten series: The Way through the Wild. He speaks about how Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, was led into the wilderness and tempted by the devil. Although Jesus was the Son of God, He was an obedient son, and the Father’s word was his meat and drink. He resisted temptation without the benefit of His own omnipotence, showing himself to be the perfect obedient man.
