- Grace and anger (Ephesians 4:26–27)August 14, 2019Whether our anger is right or wrong, we can’t deny it’s there. But because we belong to Christ, we must make it a priority to deal with anger. How?

- Donald Robinson on the Origins of the Anglican Church LeagueAugust 9, 2019History matters. It makes us question things we take for granted, it helps us to understand who we are, and it gives us a broader perspective on the issues we face today. One example – relevant for evangelical Anglicans, especially in Sydney – is an essay in Donald Robinson Selected Works, volume 4 (recently published by the Australian Church Record and Moore College). The essay is called “The Origins of the Anglican Church League” (pp. 125–52). It’s a republication of a paper given in 1976 by Donald Robinson (1922–2018), former Moore College Vice-Principal and later Archbishop of Sydney. In the paper, Robinson traces some of the currents and issues that led to the formation of the Anglican Church League in the early twentieth century. The essay is classic Donald Robinson: full of surprises, yet definitely still worth reading today to help us gain perspective on issues for evangelical Anglicans past and present.
- Telling the truth (Ephesians 4:25)August 7, 2019Truth is a rare commodity in our world. But Christians are people of the truth. The gospel of Christ demands that we value and speak the truth in every situation.
- Become who you are (Ephesians 4:22–24)July 31, 2019The gospel teaches us to change—to put off the old and put on the new. This change doesn’t save us, but it matters. It’s all about becoming who we are.
- Learning Christ (Ephesians 4:20–21)July 24, 2019Christian communities are places of learning and teaching. This isn’t just about transmitting information: Christians are people who “learn Christ”.
- Turn around and walk the other way (Ephesians 4:17–19)July 17, 2019Darkness, futility, and desire: this is the way the world walks. Paul doesn’t write these things so that we can gloat or judge. He writes so we can repent, and live.
- Playing your part (Ephesians 4:16)July 10, 2019Paul’s vision for Christ’s body is unity in diversity. It’s not just flat uniformity, nor is it just diversity for the sake of diversity. It’s diversity for a common purpose.
- The truth in love: A key principle for church growth (Ephesians 4:14–15)July 3, 2019Paul’s principle for the growth of Christ’s body isn’t about presentation or organisation. It’s more fundamental: “speaking the truth in love”.
- Christ’s body: A brief history (Ephesians 4:11–13)June 26, 2019Paul didn’t write Ephesians 4:11–13 to give us a detailed blueprint for how to organise our ministries. He wrote these verses to point us to God’s grace in Christ.
