Sermon on Nov 6, 2016

Mark 10:46-52

I watched some footage recently of people from all over the world who were blind but who through various medical techniques were enabled to see again – surgery for cataracts or retinal implants or other medical techniques. In one scene, the camera focused in on the faces of children, many of whom have been blind their whole lives, on that moment when after cataract surgery the bandages were...

Now turn with me if you would to Genesis 3. We’re not going to read the whole chapter, but we're going to read what constitutes the First Lesson of the traditional Nine Lessons and Carols service. This will be the opening Lesson, I suspect, on Sunday evening, as we have done for many, many...

Psalms Book 4

“Bless the Lord, O my soul.” So whereas Psalm 103 focuses our attention on God's tenderness and compassion as it's revealed in His grace, especially the grace of forgiveness, Psalm 104 focuses us on the greatness of God especially as it is revealed in His creation and in His providence over creation, the way He provides for His creation — not only man, but even the animals.

”O No! More Names”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Psalms Book 4

Sermon on Nov 16, 2008

Psalm 105:1-45

I'd invite you to turn with me to Psalm 105 as we continue our way through the Fourth Book of the Psalms. This psalm is another in a train of psalms of praise.

“Conspiracy”

Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please open your Bibles to Nehemiah, chapter six…Ezra Nehemiah, Esther, Job, Psalms, Proverbs in our English Bibles. Of course, Nehemiah occurs historically in the wrong place, and in the Hebrew canon of course the book of Nehemiah falls where it historically belongs, at the end of the Old Testament. We’re in roughly 445...
