  • Get More Out of Reading the Bible

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 8 Oct, 2017

    A lot of people when they open the Bible find it hard to get much out of it, particularly the Old Testament. There are hard to pronounce names and strange and sometimes disturbing stories. What are we supposed to do with it? How do we make sense of it? The goal of this 3 part sermon series is to help you have a better understanding of what you're looking at and how it can have relevance to you today. This Sunday we're going to be focusing on the first big chunk of the Bible, the Old Testament stories in Genesis through 2 Kings. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Healing Spiritual Blindness

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 24 Sep, 2017

    This Sunday we're going to be looking closely at an amazing story of the Lord healing a man who was blind from birth. It's an amazing story because the Lord did an amazing miracle but also because it's clearly also about people who are spiritually unable or unwilling to see. With the help of this story we're going to try to understand how we might be spiritually blind and how the Lord can heal us and help us to see in a new way. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Helping Each Other: Part 3 - Offering Spiritual Support

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 3 Sep, 2017

    In this sermon we are concluding the Helping Each Other series by talking about how to offer spiritual support. It sounds so good–offering spiritual support. And it is so good and can make such a difference when it’s done well. But offering spiritual support can also be done badly–people can be arrogant, controlling, clueless, etc. in the ways they approach "trying to help" and they can end up actually making things worse. But the answer isn’t that we should stop trying. Let’s learn what the Lord teaches about how to avoid common pitfalls and how we can best approach offering spiritual support to others.

  • Why Heaven and Hell are Relevant Today - Part 2 Hell

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 23 Jul, 2017

    Hell is something a lot of people would rather not think about and not talk about. And it makes sense: who would want to contemplate the idea that they or people they love might end up in a place of suffering for eternity? That's terrifying. But ignoring hell or pretending like it doesn't exist also doesn't work. Just like we talked about last week with heaven, hell is a reality that we can experience on a daily basis and so we need to look at it squarely and try to understand how best to deal with it. That's what we're going to try to do on Sunday. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Why Heaven and Hell are Relevant Today - Part 1 Heaven

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 16 Jul, 2017

    Heaven and hell can seem like fuzzy, distant, old-fashioned ideas - something from a different era, like fairytales with heroes and monsters. A lot of people today aren't sure that heaven and hell even exist and those that do think they exist often think of them as something that will only be relevant later in life, when they're getting ready to die. The New Church perspective is that heaven and hell are realities that we deal with every day and that what we believe about them can have a profound impact on our lives. Come and hear the New Church perspective on heaven this Sunday. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Hazards & Blessings of Comparing Our Spiritual Lives with Others

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 25 Jun, 2017

    "The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself. 'God, I thank You that I am not like other men - extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector." (Luke 18:11) "And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God be merciful to me a sinner!" (Luke 18:13) | By Malcolm G. Smith, Bryn Athyn Cathedral

  • An Open Invitation - Part 2: The Misled and the Willfully Ignorant

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 4 Jun, 2017

    The letters to the seven churches in the book of Revelation reveal seven different kinds of people that the Lord calls to be part of His church - their good qualities and their potentially fatal flaws. This Sunday evening, in Part 2 of this series, we're talking about people who do good things but lack a true understanding, either because they're in false thinking or because they can't be bothered to think about what's true. Come and see what the Lord has to say to people like this. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • 6 Ways the Jewish Ingathering is Relevant Today

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 21 May, 2017

    "O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good for His mercy is forever." This Sunday the topic for the service will the harvest and gratitude. To celebrate this important topic we are inviting all children to bring fruit and vegetables up to the altar at the beginning of the service. All food collected will be donated to The White House Community Care Centre, which is our current outreach focus. Any non-perishable items will also be gratefully received. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Finding Jesus in the Life of Abraham, Part 2

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 8 May, 2017

    This Sunday evening we'll be exploring a difficult story—the story of Abraham bargaining with God and asking Him if He will still destroy Sodom and Gomorrah if even just a few good people are there. The teachings of the New Church say that, in this strange and somewhat disturbing story, we can actually find a glimpse into the heart and mind of Jesus Christ when He was in this world and gain a better understanding of His incredible love for people who are trapped in evil. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA
