Crisis of Confidence in GodTim Long
9.15am St George's
Length:18 minutes
References:1 Kings 16:29-17
Mark 8:34-38
Tim focuses on the issues that can become "Gods" for us and divert us from the worship and relationship with the One God. He sets out the conflicts in early Israelite history between polytheism and monotheism and how the editors of the Book of Kings condemn King Ahab for his accommodation of the local Baal god and how Elijah comes to the fore. The prophetic ministry challenges us, just as Jesus did in the Gospel - saying we believe and trust in one God means we have to act it as well as say it.

Embracing the TrinityTim Long
9.15am St George's
Length:18 minutes
References:Genesis 1:26-27
John 16:12-15
Tim notes the importance of our belief in the Trinity to our Christian faith. He gives a biblical background to the way in which the Trinitarian nature of God has been understood. He explains how some of the theology of the Trinity has developed, being forgotten, and come back to the fore. Love is at the heart of this dynamic and that spills over to the creation including humankind infused by the Holy Spirit. The love within the Church should have the same dynamic and spill over to those outside.

A time for......... JoyTim Long
9.15am St George's
Length:15 minutes
References:Zechariah 4:1-14
John 20:1-25
Tim comments that the prophet Zechariah spoke of hope and that his message of renewal after adversity was a common one in the OT. The resurrection of Jesus follows in this biblical tradition and offers hope for all of us. St John's account of the empty tomb features characters knowing Jesus from an evidential base and moving on in joy to a mission of a gospel of forgiveness. That too is our mission in the power of the risen Christ and the Spirit.

A time for......... welcoming the KingTim Long
9.15am St George's
Length:15 minutes
References:Zechariah 9:9-13
Luke 19:28-44
Tim takes the prophecy of Zechariah about the entry into Jerusalem of the king riding on a donkey as the basis of the triumphal entry of Jesus on Palm Sunday. He sees Zechariah as a prophet giving hope to the people. The crowds on Palm Sunday would have known this and welcomed Jesus as the king of peace and as God's priest. His power and politics are those of grace and hope for society, not that of privilege and might that the worldly rulers of all times so often display.

A time for......... solitude and silenceTim Long
9.15am St George's
Length:12 minutes
References:Psalm 46
Mark 10:13-16
Tim considers the theme of security in a safe quiet place and Mothering Sunday and looks at Psalm 46 and Jesus' encouragement to the disciples to allow children to come to him. He sees the OT Temple as being the place of quiet in the chaos around the Psalmist. Jesus' message to the disciples was acceptance not rejection of the less fortunate. And that was the basis of the custom of Mothering Sunday in the church. The church building still being a symbol of peace and quiet for us.

A time for......... RepentanceTim Long
9.15am St George's
Length:14 minutes
References:2 Chronicles 6:34-42
Luke 3:1-17
Tim looks at both the OT and Gospel passages as they relate to repentance. He indicates that both membership of a faith community and commitment to God by ethical activity as well as word are needed to run in parallel. He indicates that John the Baptist's call for repentance looks for it to be accompanied by action. We all fall short of keeping God's law, we all need to heed the call for repentance as that is the means of forgiveness and restoration to a relationship with God through Jesus' saving grace.

The Life of Jesus: Jesus, the one who sends us.Tim Long
9.15am St George's
Length:15 minutes
References:Malachi 1:1-4:6
Luke 9:1-9
Tim sets the scene for the disciples to be sent out by Jesus to spread the Gospel - both in word and deed. Tim suggests that they had to travel light to have a dependency on their hosts. Herod wonders if John the Baptist has risen from the dead, but Tim points out that this a key turning point of history as prophesies are fulfilled. We are unlikely to be asked to by like those early disciples but we are to carry the same message in word and deed appropriate to our generation and society
