  • Heavenly Imbalance

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

    “Everything in moderation” seems like a sound rule for life. After all, anything, even something good, can become harmful when taken to an extreme. Yet this common-sense truth finds surprisingly little support in the Lord’s Word. As just one example, Jesus says, “no one can serve two masters” (Matthew 6:24). There is no moderation or balancer here: rather pick a side and wholeheartedly follow it! This Sunday we will look at how a blind devotion to moderation can be harmful and why thinking in terms of prioritisation is a more heavenly outlook. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Joy Comes in the Morning: Dealing with Depression from a Spiritual Standpoint

    Banquet Address - 22 Jun, 2019

    Joel Glenn's banquet speech at the 2019 New Church Day Banquet at New Church Westville. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • The Spiritual History of the Human Race, Part 2: The Ancient World

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 16 Jun, 2019

    The Spiritual History of the Human Race, Part 2: The Ancient World In the lead up to New Church Day we are looking at the spiritual history of the human race, in other words, all the churches that went before and how they contribute to where we find ourselves today in the New Church. Last week Malcolm talked about how mankind began in a kind of purity and innocence, but then fell away from that when they decided to make their own sense of self more important than God. This week we’ll look at the next era in spiritual history: the Ancient Church. This is the time period in which people became disconnected from spiritual reality and the Lord had to find other ways of reaching them. By studying this process we can start to understand why God can seem so distant from us today. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Am I Enough?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 2 Jun, 2019

    We are bombarded with messages that we need to do more, give more, be more. Whether these messages are overt and intended or subtle and implied, they push us to ask ourselves, "am I enough?" Am I enough for my children? Am I enough for my spouse? Am I enough for my work? Am I enough for my society? And above all, am I enough for the Lord? The bad news is that we are all lacking; the good news is even in our lack we are enough in the Lord's eyes. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Other People's Children

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 19 May, 2019

    This Sunday we continue our series on children. When we think of children our minds immediately go to parents as well. But children are not just the concern of parents. Whether we like it or not, all of us have some responsibility for other people's children. As individuals, as a community, and as a church, how do we carry out this responsibility that we have not asked for and at times outright resent? All of us have a role to play in the lives of the young people who surround us. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Changing Our Spiritual Landscape

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 5 May, 2019

    You can tell a lot about someone by the things and people they surround themselves with. On the one hand, this is because where we choose to put time and effort is a reflection of what we value. On the other hand, it is also because we are shaped by our environments: we become like what we are surrounded by. This statement is true spiritually. If we surround ourselves with heavenly influences, we will become heavenly. If we surround ourselves with hellish influences, we will become hellish. Where and how we spend our time is not just a matter of personal preference. It is a matter of choosing who we will become. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , 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
