  • The Movement of Easter, Part 1: Go Forth and Make Disciples

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 21 Apr, 2019

    There is a lot of movement in the story of the morning of the Lord’s resurrection. Words like go, come, went, ran are used 18 times in the last chapter of Matthew and almost two-thirds of the verses contain some sort of movement. Women go to the tomb, they are told to go and tell the disciples to go to another place. When the disciples go to that place, the Lord tells them to go out to all nations and make disciples, baptise, and teach. What movement does the Lord want from us? It’s easy to celebrate Easter, eat a few too many chocolates, and go back to normal life without anything having changed. Where does the Lord want us to go this Easter and how do we get up and do it? | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Can You Recognise the Messiah

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 14 Apr, 2019

    This Sunday we celebrate Jesus riding into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. When He rode in some people recognised Him as the Messiah, other people didn't know who He was, and other people strongly rejected the idea that He was the Messiah. We hope that we would have been among those who saw Him as the Messiah but, a few chapters later, the Lord warns people not to be fooled by people pretending to be the Messiah. Can we tell the difference between the Lord and people pretending to be the Lord? | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Order and Anarchy

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 7 Apr, 2019

    In the western world we tend to value individuality above almost anything else. The freedom of the individual is sacrosanct. The Lord also values individual freedom. Without the freedom to make personal choices we would not be able to choose heaven over hell. Yet that does not mean that all freedom is equal: one kind of individual freedom leads to hellish anarchy while the other leads to heavenly order. If we want to follow the Lord, we need to spend time distinguishing between the two. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • What Would Jesus Do?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 31 Mar, 2019

    In the western world we tend to value individuality above almost anything else. The freedom of the individual is sacrosanct. The Lord also values individual freedom. Without the freedom to make personal choices we would not be able to choose heaven over hell. Yet that does not mean that all freedom is equal: one kind of individual freedom leads to hellish anarchy while the other leads to heavenly order. If we want to follow the Lord, we need to spend time distinguishing between the two. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Purifying Motives

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 24 Mar, 2019

    Doing good things is relatively easy. But what about when you've done your good deed for the day only to be assaulted by the nagging feeling that maybe, just maybe, your motive for doing it was a selfish one? Changing our motives is hard be cause unlike actions, motives cannot be changed directly. We cannot just choose to be motivated by good will at the drop of a hat. Luckily, the Lord lays out a process that we can go through, and if we follow it, over time, our motives will become more and more pure. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Founded on Prayer

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk only - 17 Mar, 2019

    Every year we celebrate the founding of Kainon School with a special worship service. This is a great way to celebrate Kainon, because its real foundation is the Lord Himself. This year, in keeping with the school theme of "Prayer from the Heart" we will look at how prayer gives us a foundation that can carry us through even the most difficult of times. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Love Over Ego - Part 5 - The Writing is on the Wall

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 10 Mar, 2019

    The phrase “the writing is on the wall” comes from the story that we’re going to be exploring on Sunday. During a wild and profane party, the new king of Babylon, Belshazzar, sees a hand write a mysterious message on the wall. And the meaning of the message, as explained by Daniel, is that Belshazzar has been evaluated, found to be deficient, and so will have the kingdom taken from him. In our process of working to have love triumph over our ego, we will have times when the writing is on the wall for some aspect of our lives. Are we willing to have that part of us die? | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Love Over Ego - Part 4 - Unashamed Humility

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 3 Mar, 2019

    When a person hits rock bottom, there can be a lot of shame. This is especially true if it seemed for a long time that he had everything together, only to have it all come crashing down. But shame is not where a person has to end. Every failure is an opportunity to learn and grow. When we take that opportunity, the greatest lesson we learn is that of embracing humility and rising out of shame. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Love Over Ego - Part 3 - The Freedom to Say No

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 24 Feb, 2019

    This Sunday we will be working through the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego and how they were not willing to bow down to an idol that Nebuchadnezzar set up, even if it would mean that they would be burned to death in a furnace as punishment. How did they have such strength in their convictions? Would we be willing to stick to our faith if doing so could result in us facing similarly dire consequences? | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Love Over Ego - Part 2 - Wisdom in Humility

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk only - 17 Feb, 2019

    The path to wisdom lasts a lifetime, and even then is never truly finished. Even the wisest man alive is pitifully ignorant compared to the vast wisdom of the Lord. Yet still we strive to grow in wisdom and intelligence, as we ought to do. We turn to experts, to podcasts and books, to life experiences and rationally thought-out plans. We expect that if we only had the right information we would be able to master life. Paradoxically though, wisdom does not ultimately come from grasping at worldly knowledge: it comes when we humbly look to the Lord and acknowledge our own shortcomings. That is the wisdom that will let us master life. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA
