A Call To Community
Various
"If God sets the lonely in families, individualism sets the lonely in tribes". With isolation and loneliness at record levels as our culture creaks, Jonathan uses various passages to call us to something gloriously different, to true community.

Comparison To Calling
Judges 6:11-16
So many of us are stuck in a pattern of comparison, where we look to our left and our right to find our place. Even though we know it's a desperate way to live, we can't seem to help ourselves. Looking at Gideon's unlikely journey in Judges 6, Rich shows us that the cure to living by comparison is living by calling.

Doubt To Trust
Matthew 11:1-6
Whatever our beliefs about life and God, we all face times of doubting those beliefs. What is the place of doubt in the life of a Christian? How does it relate to words like faith, unbelief, certainty, and trust? Jonathan opens up this theme and helps us navigate the doubts we face.
We apologise for the crackling on the recording.

Exhaustion To Rest
Matthew 11:25-30
Despite all of our so-called progress, stats show that Western 21st century produces record levels of burnout, restlessness and exhaustion. What's the solution? Here, Jonathan shows how the gospel of Jesus is the only hope for the deep rest we all long for.

Judgment To Generosity
Luke 6:36-37
Critical, finger-pointing, slow to think the best of others - it's not a great list! But, tragically, even the church of Jesus can fall into such graceless judgmentalism. By considering our past, our future, and who God is, Jonny helps us move instead towards a generosity of spirit.

Wrestling With God | West Site
1 Corinthians 12
If you wrestle with issues relating to God you are probably on the right track to getting to grips with truth. So how can we wrestle with God for all of the gifts he promises? Why is the example of a mustard seed used to describe the Kingdom of God and how can these ideas enable us to begin to be fruitful?

Finding Your Place In The Body Of Christ
1 Corinthians 12:4-14
Jesus gave up his body willingly because he knew God had a plan, to give him a new body that would continue his ministry on earth. That’s us, the church of Jesus; the Body of Christ. It’s important that we find our place in the body through getting to know the Holy Spirit, discovering our gifts, and playing our part.
