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.

Bitterness To Forgiveness
Ephesians 4:21-5:2
The good news of Christianity is full to the brim of forgiveness. And yet in a world of outrage, as Christians we often fall short of our calling and fail to forgive as we have been forgiven. In this talk, Jonathan shows us how the gospel has the power to transform bitter people into forgiving people.

What Should We Do With Samson?
Judges 13
2017 has been a year of discredited heroes. Harvey Weinstein. Kevin Spacey. Robinho. Samson seems like an ancient equivalent- his achievements cancelled out by some serious moral flaws. If there was a statue of Samson in your city, would you campaign to have it torn down? If not, what can we learn from such a compromised hero?

How To Avoid Infighting
Judges 9
In the story of Abimelech, we see a new enemy arise to challenge Israel. That enemy is Israel! By the end of Judges, infighting will have done much more damage to the people of God than external oppressors. How can we make sure that we avoid repeating this scenario in the church today?

Why Do We Need A Rescuer?
Judges 3:7-11
The first judge of ‘The Judges’ is Othniel. In this short synopsis of his career, we see a template of all that is to come, but also we are confronted with a story of sin, slavery and deliverance that summarises the universal Christian message, and a picture of what ‘sin’ actually is that shows why God thinks it is such a big deal.

Show me a sign!
Judges 6 & 7
Many of us have asked God for a sign before. Sometimes our requests may have been inspired by Gideon's rather novel use of a fleece! However, is that really what we learn from the story of Gideon? Jonny explains how God is actually just as eager to look for signs from us, and that whatever 'fleeces' we may construct for him, it is our obedience that is always most important in guiding our lives in the right direction.
