2013 Year End Bedtime Story – December 29, 2013

If you have been following our podcasts, you may have noticed we missed podcasts for the last two weeks.  December 15th was our church Christmas play and last Sunday (December 22nd), we were unable to hold the service due to a major ice storm and the resulting power outages.

This week, Ken resumes and finishes his series for Advent 2013 with a review and update on the events of this past Christmas.  First, with the latest status on your favourite Christmas movies.  And then, with a look back at that first Christmas and the events that happened after Christmas day.  Inspiration is taken from Scripture:  Matthew 2:13-23, Mark 6:1-6 and John 1:10-14.

Advent’s Sights, Lights and Fights – December 8, 2013

Ken continues his Advent series with Part II – The Setting.  This week Ken’s message is entitled “Advent’s Sights, Lights and Fights”.  Now, you may think of this title in context of Christmas today – with the decorated Christmas trees, multi-coloured lighting displays and the challenge of Christmas shopping at the mall… but… Ken looks back to that first Christmas to help us discover the sights, lights and fights.  He uses Luke 1:5-19, 26-35, 57-79, John 1:6-9, Matthew 1:18-20 to tell the story.

The Sights, Sounds and Tragedies of Christmas – December 1, 2013

End Times – November 24, 2013

Ken concludes his series on the ‘End Times’, speaking about Paul’s prophesy in his 2nd letter to his protégée Timothy, chapter 3. In teaching Timothy, Paul teaches us how to Outlast the Last days, and avoid becoming immoral in our world.  The Scripture Passage for today is 2 Timothy 3:2-17

Enduring the Battle – November 17, 2013

Onward Against the Enemy – October 27, 2013

Back with us after recuperating from minor surgery, Ken follows on from the messages delivered by our guest speakers over the last two weeks.  Today Ken uses Paul’s letter to the Ephesians as his inspiration to talk about our fight against the Evil One.  Ephesians 6:10-18

Temple Troubles!: When disappointment trumps celebration! – October 6, 2013

Rebuilding Life: Phase IV – Moving In… God has done it…we helped! – September 29, 2013

Rebuilding Life: Phase III – God can do it…we can help! – September 22, 2013
