For four weeks, starting last week, St John’s is hosting author Stephen Abbott, as he leads a course about sharing Jesus in everyday ways. This episode is a snippet of week one of the course, which continues on Wednesdays until May 16th. If your interest has been piqued, you can join the course by registering at http://stjohnsdc.info. Payment can be made for the course’s handbook online, or in person at the events.
The bible is set up to reveal God’s character to us, so we can get to know him better. The beginning of the bible, Genesis 1, and the creation of the universe, reveals part of God’s character which is often overlooked: his creativity.
In this episode, Bishop Philip Huggins joins us for a special service of baptism and confirmation. We heard from a number of people publicly declaring their faith in Jesus, and the Bishop reflects on that truth.
On our 150th birthday, we gathered as a body of believers to celebrate. We were joined by Archbishop Philip Freier, who spoke from John 15.
We began the first Term of the year together with a combined service, reflecting on our calling as Christians. Tim Johnson gave an interactive retelling of the calling of the first disciples in Luke 5:1-11.
