  • Finding Jesus in the Life of Joshua - Part 1 - The Early Years

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 6 May, 2018

    People have been drawing parallels between the stories of Joshua and Jesus for a long time (which makes sense considering that Jesus is the Greek version of the name Joshua). But the teachings of the New Church indicate that the connections between the stories go much deeper than a shared name and some intriguing similarities. Every detail of the story can be read as a way for us to get a deeper understanding of the Lord's experience while He was on earth. This Sunday we will explore the early stories of Joshua, before he became the leader of the Children of Israel, and what those stories can show us about the life of the Lord Jesus Christ. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Correspondence - The Relationship Between Physical and Spiritual Things

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

    How do physical things relate to spiritual things? What is the connection between our body and our spirit? How do we make sense of the confusing imagery in the Bible, a book that is supposed to be about spiritual things? New Church teachings explain these things using a fascinating concept called correspondence. This Sunday we will explore this concept and how it can change how we look at everything in the Bible and the world around us. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Failure, Frustration and Transformation

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 8 Apr, 2018

    In the Gospel of John, after the Lord rises from the dead, He interacts with Peter a few more times and gives him some important final directions. This Sunday we will reflect on what this story can show us about the failure, frustration and transformation that we're likely to go through as we try to follow the Lord. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Practicing Forgiveness - Transformation

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 25 Mar, 2018

    This Sunday is Palm Sunday and the last Sunday of our Practicing Forgiveness programme. Throughout these past few weeks we've talked about the difference that forgiveness can make - in an individual's life and in society in general. We understand the before picture and we like the after picture but how do we get from one to the other? This Sunday we'll try to understand more of what comes in between in the process of being transformed by forgiveness. The sermon was written by John L. Odhner, read by Malcolm Smith. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Practicing Forgiveness - Forgiveness within Ourselves

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 18 Mar, 2018

    We have talked about how we are called to forgive those who have hurt us, and to seek forgiveness from other people and from the Lord for the things we have done. This Sunday we will consider another important aspect of forgiveness: forgiveness within ourselves. There are times when other people may have forgiven us and the Lord certainly has but we still beat up on ourselves and we can't seem to let it go. The Lord can help us to understand why this happens and help us to get free. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Practicing Forgiveness - Why Forgive?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 25 Feb, 2018

    This Sunday we begin the Practicing Forgiveness programme with a question: "Why Forgive?" Why should we forgive people who have hurt us? What is it about forgiveness that is so essential to spiritual life that all the major world religions teach about how important it is? And - most importantly - how do we do it? How do we grant and seek forgiveness in a genuine way? Come on Sunday as we begin to try to find answers to these important questions. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Collected, One by One

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 11 Feb, 2018

    There's a verse somewhere in the middle of Isaiah that says, ...."you shall be collected, one by one...." Someone recently showed me this verse and pointed out that it has important implications for how we approach our relationships with other people and the Lord. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Rebuilding the House of the Lord - Part 2 - How to Keep Working

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

    When the people obey the Lord and rebuild the house of the Lord it doesn't meet their expectations of what it should be. The Lord's response to them, through the prophet Haggai, can be very useful for us when the results of our spiritual efforts aren't quite what we think they should be. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • Rebuilding the House of the Lord - Part i - Is it Time?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 14 Jan, 2018

    At this time of year we're often taking stock of who we are and where we are in our lives and thinking about what we might need to do to improve our lives. This Sunday and next we will be exploring the somewhat obscure but very relevant story in the book of Haggai of the Children of Israel being called to rebuild the house of the Lord and what it can teach us about the process of trying to do better about prioritising the Lord in our lives. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA

  • And His Name Will Be Called

    Worship Service: Family (may include music) - 25 Dec, 2017

    This Christmas Day, as we celebrate the Lord being born into this world, we will be reflecting on the significance of some of the many different names that that little baby was called. | By Rev. Malcolm G. Smith , Westville, RSA
