  • Repenting from Coveting

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 21 Oct, 2018

    What does it mean to covet? Do you know how to recognise when you’re coveting? More importantly, do you know how to repent from coveting? The teachings of the New Church say that the two commandments about coveting cover some pretty important things for us to work on. We can learn to notice when we’re coveting and, with the Lord’s help, we can repent from coveting. Come find out how. The video mentioned in the recording is "How Not Coveting Could Change the World" by offthelefteye on YouTube. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Repenting from Stealing

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 7 Oct, 2018

    The teachings are clear: we have to repent. We have to identify and acknowledge the ways in which we are breaking the Lord’s Commandments and we then have to ask the Lord for help and actually begin to live in a new way. Our spiritual lives depend on our willingness to do this work. For the next three Sundays we will be looking at some of the 10 Commandments and how a person could repent from breaking those commandments. This Sunday evening we will talk about stealing. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Reading the Bible - How Do You Know If You Are Doing It Right

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 23 Sep, 2018

    If you try to read the Bible and get some idea of what it means, how do you know if it's right or not? This Sunday we'll talk about what's most important for us to do to understand the Bible in the right way. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Why and How to Read the Bible

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 16 Sep, 2018

    We all know that we should probably read the Bible more than we currently do. This Sunday will be a reminder of the value of spending time reading the Lord’s Word, including some thoughts about how much to read and what to do if you don't understand what you read. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Our Spiritual Journeys - Looking Back

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 26 Aug, 2018

    Last week Joel spoke about the importance and value of telling the stories of what the Lord has done for us on our spiritual Journeys. When we do look back on what happened in the past, however there are also dangers. Our memories of the past have a powerful effect on our present experience. When should we try to leave behind what has happened in the past and not dwell on it and when is there value in reflecting on the past? This Sunday we will try to understand how the Lord would like us to hold our memories of the past. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Ideals - Sorting Out What Matters and What Does Not

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 12 Aug, 2018

    We can't live up to all ideals. We have to choose between them and then prioritise which of our ideals or values matter more or less in different situations. And what if we get it wrong? What if we reject a true ideal? What if we buy into a false ideal? What if we give something too much weight or too little? These are the questions we're going to wrestle with this Sunday. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Ideals

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 29 Jul, 2018

    Ideals are great when we feel like we’re living up to them. But what about when we don’t? What about when we fall short? What about when it’s impossible for us to live up to certain ideals, through no fault of our own? Do we abandon our ideals? Do we change our ideals to fit our circumstances? How does the Lord want us to hold our ideals? | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Good Humour

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 22 Jul, 2018

    Humour is all around us - we tease people, they tease us, we make jokes, we laugh at jokes that other people make, we watch funny shows, we read funny things. Humour is great and life would be rather bleak without laughter. But humour can also be really painful and destructive. What does the Lord say in His Word about humour and what guidelines can we get from him about what sorts of jokes and humour to engage in and what stuff to steer clear of? | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • How Long, O Lord?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 10 Jun, 2018

    There are times when the state of things in this world can seem pretty bleak - when things at a national, international and even local and personal level seem pretty bad. Too often it seems like evil and selfishness are winning, despite genuinely good people doing all that they can to try to do what's right. This Sunday we will reflect on a vision from the book of Revelation that captures this feeling - the vision of souls under the altar crying out to the Lord, "How long, O Lord?" - and we will see what the Lord has to tell us about what to do when it seems like things are really bad and will never get better. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Finding Jesus in the Life of Joshua - Part 3 - The Conquest

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 20 May, 2018

    In this series so far we have looked at what the early years of the life of Joshua can show us about the early years of Jesus' life and we have looked at what the turning point in Joshua's life when he took over command of the Children of Israel can show us about a similar turning point in Jesus' life. This Sunday, in the final part of the series, we will look at what Joshua's conquest of the land of Canaan can show us about what Jesus was fighting against and fighting for during His three years of active ministry. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA
