  • The Movement of Easter, Part 2: Baptise and Teach

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 28 Apr, 2019

    Last week we read about the Lord commanding His disciples to go forth and make disciples of all nations and we talked about what He is asking of us in that command. The Lord didn’t just give them that general command; He also told them specifically to baptise people into the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and to teach them to keep all the things that He had commanded them. Are we all meant to baptise people? Why did the Lord talk about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Are we all meant to teach other people what the Lord commanded? If we want to take this command of the Lord’s seriously, then we need to really think this through. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • 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

  • 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 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 - Taking a Stand

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

    This Sunday we begin our series on the Daniel story, Love Over Ego. When the story begins, Daniel is taken far away from his home to live in captivity in Babylon. But Daniel is given an opportunity to get special treatment and to move up the ladder. When we find ourselves in similar difficult circumstances it’s very easy to justify doing whatever we need to do in order to get ahead. But Daniel, instead, does not just go with the flow and take what’s given to him; he takes a stand for what the Lord teaches. Come on Sunday to hear what happens to him and to reflect on how we also can take a stand for what the Lord teaches. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Burn Out

    Worship Service: Children & Adult - 27 Jan, 2019

    A number of people online are discussing and writing articles about burnout at the moment, prompted by this article posted a few weeks ago. And so it seemed good to spend some time thinking about burnout from a New Church Christian perspective. What does the Lord teach about burning out and how can He help us to notice when we’re heading that direction and change course? | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Ezekiel and the Valley of the Dry Bones

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 13 Jan, 2019

    The sermon for this Sunday is one by Coleman Glenn, our former Associate Pastor. The text is a dramatic vision that the prophet Ezekiel had of a valley full of dry bones that come back together, have sinew, flesh, and skin cover them again and ultimately turn into a huge group of living people. It's a dramatic symbolic picture of how the Lord can take what's dead within us and bring us back to spiritual life. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Heaven is Not for Everyone

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 4 Nov, 2018

    We’re doing a series called “Appealing Heresies” which is about ideas that sound good and sound true but actually are quite problematic when you think them through. This Sunday evening we’re talking about the appealing idea that everyone can go to heaven, no matter what they believe. Many people believe this. Many people think this is what the New Church teaches. It’s not. What’s wrong with this idea? Come on Sunday evening as we unpack the implications of this appealing heresy and try to understand what the Lord actually teaches on this topic. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Una Elphick Memorial Service
