The Heart of the Matter
In this reading, the Pharisees and the Scribes travel from the headquarters of Judaism, Jerusalem, to the back blocks of Galilee to investigate this new preacher that was causing such a stir. There had been minor interactions with Jesus prior to this, but now this was needing serious investigation.
From the outset, a key question is this: Were they open-minded?
Did they approach this with open minds and hearts, with a genuine desire to find out what was going on, or were they coming with a clear agenda of their own?
The recorded service can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/7V5bE-1jNfA, and the written version can be found on our News page.
And Hamish is recommending a musician he came across this week – his singing will supplement the recorded sermon! Paul Zach sings the old hymns with a contemporary acoustic and blues feel. You can listen to him on Spotify or on YouTube. Hamish especially likes these: Joy Will Come; I Want Jesus to Walk with Me; and Just a Closer Walk with Me.
Worship Services are held at 10am every Sunday. For those unable to join us in person, a recorded version will be available from 9am each week.
