Jesus and Movember

Ministers' letters

The “Jesus is _____.” campaign reminds me of the annual Movember campaign. Now in its 16th year, Movember encourages men to grow a mo (moustache) during the month of November. The idea is to register with some mates, start the month clean-shaven, and then go through the varied stages of beauty involved in growing a…

Up from the Grave He Arose

Ministers' letters

Can you imagine what it might have been like to see Jesus emerge from the tomb? As a matter of fact, the Gospel writers do not record that moment! Presumably it was very early on the Sunday morning, before dawn. The women had not yet arrived with their spices to anoint the corpse. The guard…

Vale Billy Graham

Ministers' letters

Friends in Christ, Last week saw the funeral of Dr. Billy Graham. Our families owe, humanly speaking, our lives to this Evangelist and his crusades. Each family member, except me, made decisions for Christ in 1959 at the Sydney Showground or Sydney Cricket Ground. They were great times, when the daily papers would have pages…

Jesus is … Turning Wine into Water

Community, Events, Ministers' letters

Yes, you read that headline correctly. Jesus is… turning wine into water! On 10 March 2018 at Towradgi Park. And through the weeks leading up to that date.

Ministers' letters

The thought of sharing the gospel message with people can be terrifying! How do we help our heads and hearts take on this task of evangelism? As we get ready for our “Jesus is _______.” month of mission in March, I thought it would be good to list as many reasons for why we are…

The day I wrote this letter, I was praying with fellow church members and missionaries at the CMS Summer School in Katoomba. Some of our missionaries serve in a location where the government can make it difficult for people who are Christians. In one situation, employers now use a questionnaire, which includes a question that…

Inviting Christmas

Ministers' letters

It’s Advent season, according to the traditional church calendar. Advent means “arrival” or “coming”. The Advent season is where we celebrate Christ’s first coming – his coming into human flesh – at Christmas, and prepare for his second coming – to judge the world and take his people home – at the end of the…

Study Leave Reflections

Ministers' letters

I recently had the privilege of taking study leave. During that time I attended two conferences. The first was for the Evangelical Theological Society and the other was for the Society of Biblical Literature. Both societies, which are made of biblical and theological scholars as well as students and pastors, seek to foster scholarship of…

Global Mindedness

Ministers' letters

In my Minister’s Letters this year, I’m unpacking the “Values” in St Michael’s “Vision 2020” statement. Here’s the eighth on the list of things we value: Globally-minded Christians, connecting with all classes, ages and cultures. Leviticus 19:15 says, “do not show partiality to the poor or favouritism to the great”. The Proverbs (23:22) remind us,…

Encouragement

Ministers' letters

How have you been encouraged in your faith, your walk with Jesus, in recent times? It is important to be encouraged to keep going in the Christian life, which can often be quite hard and a struggle. Whilst on long service leave earlier in the year, I spent some time reflecting on the idea of…
