Anyone can fish!- a sermon on Luke 5.1-11

This is the first in a sermon series The Genius of Jesus

Scripture Reading: Luke 5.1-11

In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.

Genius 1 Encouraging Potential Image TitleLet me take you, in your imagination, to Lake Gennesaret- another name for the Sea of Galilee, the inland lake in the north of Israel which makes up part of the Jordan river valley. We walk down from the fertile farming country of Galilee to the lake, which lies in a depression in the landscape. It is almost 700 feet below sea level (but because the River Jordan runs through it, it’s not salty like the Dead Sea to the south). Because the lake is so low, and surrounded by high mountains, the lake is prone to sudden, violent storms. But there are a number of large towns on the lakeside, for the Lake Galilee is famous for its fishing (salted fish are exported around the Roman Empire). Continue reading

The only One to trust: a sermon on Psalm 146; 5 July 2015

Sunday 5 July 2015 (Year A, Narrative Lectionary)

Scripture Readings:

Psalm 146 (read responsively: Common Worship version (CH4 102)

Luke 7:18-23

In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.

So today is the last of our sermons series on the Psalms. And you may have noticed today that I’ve chosen all Psalms as our praise items today. You may remember that last Sunday, I mentioned various hymns which were based on the Psalms. So we’re singing some of those today.

OFFLOAD – What’s bubbling up inside you that you want to get off your chest with God? A question? A hurt? An injustice?
REQUEST – What would you like to ask God to do? What will you trust Him to deal with and to answer according to His wisdom instead of yours?
OUR CONGREGATION – please pray for new full-time student, Dougie Wolf and his family moving from Stornoway to Inverness this weekend.
OUR COMMUNITY – all preparing for weddings over the summer
