Mark 14:24 – My Blood of the Covenant

What is this covenant that Jesus made, and with whom?  (Erik Pattison, 2 August 2020)

Mark 14:22 – The broken bread

The meaning of the bread: Jesus invites us to a relationship of trust. Jesus also shares in our brokenness.  The bread looks forward, too: we will also share his resurrected body.  (Erik Pattison, 26 July 2020)

1 Corinthians 10:14-22 – Participation in Christ

What does it mean for us, at the Lord's Supper, that we "participate" in Christ?  How does it connect us to God?  (Erik Pattison, 12 July 2020.  Note: the recording quality is not good, as we currently meet with the windows open after the lockdown)

Psalm 37 – Waiting for the Lord: Do not fret

This Psalm tells us several more things about what waiting on God really means.  For a start, those who love God have a choice: wait on him, or fret.  (Erik Pattison, 15 March 2020.  Do read the text first, as the reading is not included in this recording: Psalm 37 NIV)

Psalm 27 – Waiting for the Lord

Waiting is unpopular, but wonderful things are promised to those who "wait for the Lord".  What does it really mean and look like?  (Erik Pattison, 8 March 2020. Note: Erik's voice at the start of this recording was a bit hoarse from our cheerful singing, but he soon recovered.)

Psalm 96 – Rejoicing in God's justice

Second talk on God's justice: a look at what is so wonderfully good about it, that we long for it and all of creation will rejoice in it.  (Erik Pattison, 23 February 2020. Includes a long Q&A again)

Romans 12:19 – "Vengeance is mine, I will repay"

Vengeance and justice are deeply intertwined.  The prophets tell is that it is also a necessary element  in our salvation.  How has the death of Jesus reshaped these realities? (Erik Pattison, 16 February 2020)
