Sermons on Luke
The Shepherds’ Story
For Carols by Candlelight, Louise spoke on the account in Luke 2: “A surprising visit”.
Carols by Candleight
A very different Carols by Candlelight this year. We met over Zoom on the day following the announcement of increased restrictions so it was good to be reminded of the timeless truth about Jesus’ birth through carols, readings and Chris’ talk. The audio recording of the talk is attached. The readings and carols can be watched again:
On the third Sunday in Advent Chris spoke about why Jesus had to come, picking up on the verses from the Jesus team talk in John 14 when Jesus says: “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.”
On the second Sunday in Advent, Chris spoke from Isaiah 40, John 14 and Luke 1 about how Jesus was the promised way through the spiritual wasteland, and through his birth became the fulfilled way to the father.
Perfect love drives out fear
On the first Sunday in Advent, Louise spoke to us about how perfect love drives out fear, picking up on Jesus’ command at the start of his team talk in John 14: “Do not let your hearts be troubled.”
