  • The Steps of Repentance 3 - Pray to the Lord

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 15 May, 2016

    The teachings of the New Church outline 4 steps of repentance. This Sunday we're digging into the 3rd step: praying to the Lord. Prayer can sometimes feel pointless and ineffectual but that's why I love the chance to get to think about it and talk about it in the context of repentance because then we can really see it's importance and power. | By Malcolm G.

  • The Steps of Repentance 2 - Recognise and Acknowledge Sin

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 8 May, 2016

    (By Coleman Glenn read by Malcolm Smith)The teachings of the New Church outline 4 steps of repentance. This Sunday we're digging into the 2nd step--a step that is easy to overlook but essential to real repentance: recognising and acknowledging our sin. Sin is a scary word but learning how to recognise and acknowledge it in ourselves in a healthy way is a key step in moving beyond it. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Steps of Repentance 1 – Examine Yourself

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 1 May, 2016

    The first thing Jesus said when He began public preaching was, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Matthew 4:17). But how do we repent? The teachings of the New Church outline 4 steps of repentance. Can you guess (or remember) what they are? And, more importantly, do you know how to use them to repent? | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • God Remembered. Did He Forget?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 17 Apr, 2016

    The Lord is always present with us, but at times He withholds His help until we can accept His help in a way that builds our trust and reliance on Him. Even at those times He is lovingly present waiting for the time we can remember Him and be lifted up by Him. | By Derrick Lumsden, Sarver, PA

  • Evaluating and Improving Your Spiritual Health

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 3 Apr, 2016

    How are you doing? How's your life going? How's your spiritual life going? These can be hard questions to know how to answer and hard questions to want to answer. Especially if things aren't going well we can feel a lot of shame and resistance around directly thinking about how we're doing. But, the first step in getting healthier is to take an honest look at how we're doing right now. That's what we're going to do this Sunday. This Sunday, during the adult sermon, I will give a short talk and then give people about 10 minutes to privately fill out a series of pages called the "Spiritual Health Snapshot" and "Spiritual Health Plan." It's a tool for evaluating how you're doing spiritually, picking an area to focus on, and then making a plan to work on it. These will be available on www.newchurchwestville.co.za/snapshot . You can download and print from there. If you've done it before, it can be useful to do it again and see how things have changed since the last time. If you haven't done it before, I hope you'll give it a try. Let's each do our individual work so that we can become more healthy as individuals and as a church. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Coming to Appreciate Remorse

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 21 Feb, 2016

    Almost everyone has experienced remorse. This message looks at how the remorse we might feel is likely to be a sign of the Lord's love working within us. | By Garry Walsh, Phoenix, AZ

  • Fixing Fragile Hearts

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 7 Feb, 2016

    This week we think about how challenging elements in our own imperfect natures can cause us to feel weak or fragile. The way the Lord deals with this is captured, in part, in the story of His turning out of the temple those who bought and sold, the money changers and those who sold doves. | By Garry Walsh, Phoenix, AZ

  • You Must be Born Anew

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 17 Jan, 2016

    Is it possible to really change? At the beginning of the year, it's a question we may find ourselves asking. The startling answer from the Lord's Word: both yes and no. According to the Word, we have two "selves" or "wills" at the same time: a fleshly one, and a spiritual one. The fleshly will doesn't change and will always be fleshly, but the good news is that we can choose to act from the spiritual one instead - if we put the fleshly one to death. How do we do that? Listen on! | By Coleman S. Glenn, Westville, RSA

  • Seeing Patterns by Eric Carswell

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 10 Jan, 2016

    This Sunday we will be hearing a sermon by Eric Carswell called “Seeing Patterns.” It takes a funny and not very well-known story from the Old Testament and uses it to explore how we can come to see negative patterns in our lives, even when we don’t particularly want to. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA
