Today was another of our “Question Church” meetings — following up on the previous session where we talked about the Holy Spirit (sorry, the sound quality of that recording was not good, so it is not available here). This time, four panel members responded to four questions: What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit? Are those filled with the Spirit somehow “better Christians” than others? What is the gift of tongues? Does the Holy Spirit work in non-believers? Roger Street introduced the session and kept everyone in order, while Peter Nodding provided a summing up.

Today Siobhan talked to us about how God’s people are expected to be filled with justice and righteousness. But what do those terms mean? And more particularly, what do they mean for us? Listen to or download Siobhan’s words here.
Andrew talked to us today of Polos and peas — in a manner of speaking! The Polos featured in a talk ostensibly aimed at the children but containing something for us all (listen here); but later he turned to some of the good things we receive from God: find out what they are by listening to or downloading his talk here.
Today marked the first of an occasional series looking at the Lord’s Prayer. Jonathan looked first at the context to determine whether it is given to us as a model prayer or as part of more general teaching on the nature and content of prayer. He then moved on to talk about the purpose of prayer: do we pray because it changes us, or because it changes the world? Listen to or download his talk here.
Taking his text from Psalm 16, Jonathan spoke of the difference between happiness and joy; how joy has deeper roots than happiness and can sustain us even through times of sadness and suffering. Listen to or download his talk here.
