Living in the Shadows - Haggai
This Sunday, Pastor Craig Lydon will be bringing us the final instalment in our Haggai sermon series, from Haggai 2:20-23. Craig says “So much of who we are in our present has been defined by our journey in the past - our parents, our family, our school experience, our sense of place in the world. Obviously this can be both good and bad. What about if we did grow up on the wrong side of town? Or if some of the choices that we made in life sit at our doorstep like an unwelcome guest - things that we wish were different, but continue to define our view of self, moving forward? The good part about our relationship with Jesus is that he gives us a new beginning, a new hope, and a new purpose. We're not left in the penalty box living with regret, disappointment and overwhelmed by our failure, but are told that we're loved, forgiven and given a new start.”

Obedience - Haggai
Senior Pastor Craig Lydon continues the 4 part series through the OT book of Haggai, titled "Living Strong In Confusing Times", bringing the message from Haggai 2:10-19 and thinking about Obedience. Craig says “We all live in a culture that is driven by time and deadlines and it focuses much on the future. Our attitude to time can be that it relates to efficiency and productivity. It feels like we’re more inclined than ever to use time to accomplish results rather than to build in to relationships. Our Christian faith also is impacted by this thinking. It’s the old tension between doing and being, and the people of Haggai also struggled with this.” There will also be an interview with one of the Shalom women, who will be sharing their story of restoration.

You have probably heard of Shalom House, which has the most amazing ministry in rehabilitating individuals and restoring families from controlling issues such as alcohol, drugs, anxiety, depression, domestic violence, gambling, etc. We have the privilege of hosting the men from Shalom in our service this Sunday, and the women the following Sunday - they always bring so much to the service and we look forward to them joining us. Our Church Weekend Away is also on this weekend, so if you’re wondering where some of our regulars are then you’ll find them chilling out (or just chilled :-) ) on the beach in Busselton! This Sunday, Pastor Jason Brooks will be bringing the message from Luke, thinking about the prodigal son. There will also be an interview with one of the Shalom men, who will be sharing their story of restoration. Jason says “Jesus’ words spoken 2000 years ago were often challenging and they still are today. They are challenging to those who believe in Him and to those who do not. However, Jesus’ words are always framed with love, compassion and a heart towards the broken, downtrodden, and to those who have taken the wrong turn in life. This Sunday we will be in the Gospel of Luke thinking about the prodigal son.”

Expectations - Haggai
Senior Pastor Craig Lydon continues a 4 part series through the OT book of Haggai. Craig says: "How are your expectations of life currently being realised? Have you ever been encouraged to see a movie or read a book only to be disappointed with how it turned out? It seems we live our lives from one event to the next with a sense of anticipation and expectation of that which is to come. But how often does reality meet expectation and how does that leave us feeling? I wonder how that ties in with our spiritual life and even our expectations of God and how His work should look."

The Bigger Picture
Life is filled with challenges and throws us lots of curve balls. At times it can be difficult to stay focused on what is important. Sometimes when we think we are focused on what is “truly important” we can lose sight of the bigger picture. When I think about this dilemma my thoughts are taken to Psalm 23 and David’s poetic words: "The Lord is my Shepherd". Throughout life we all need a guide to help us through, and Jesus is not only your Saviour, but also your personal shepherd, who will love, protect, and guide you through the highs and lows of life.

The Good Life
What does it mean to live a good whole life? This is the primary question we'll explore from the introduction to the short yet powerful letter of James. James invites us to stick with it in the midst of trials, suffering, and distractions in this crazy journey of life. Ultimately, we'll see how these four sentences, written nearly two thousand years ago, remain relevant and true in our current cultural moment.

Why Is This Happening To Me? - Living for a Greater Purpose
Senior Pastor Craig Lydon will be preaching this Sunday, bringing us the message on Living for a Greater Purpose from Philippians 1:12-26. Craig says, “Life is a journey with lots of detours and dead ends. It can be the joy of sitting on a hill top with spectacular vistas and soaking up the warm sunshine, or huddling in a rain storm on the hill side in the numbing cold. How does God fit into these two situations? We can find it easy to worship God on the hill top, but of course the hill side is much more difficult. Paul gives wise advice for hill side living in Philippians".

Living with each other in Community - Family ties
In Colossians 3 the apostle Paul says we are to act with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and longsuffering. It is in the local church context that we have the opportunity to rub shoulders with each other, to upset each other, to annoy and frustrate each other! And because of that we can practise the things that Paul talks about in this passage. Being in a church community means we are tested in these things. This can feel negative for many, but we can reframe this thinking and see it as the beautiful way God works through His people to shape them into the diverse, complex, yet wonderful and spectacular body of Christ!
