  • Speech and the Spirit

    We’ve got to move beyond the question, “Is every Christian an evangelist”? I had a go at moving the issue forward in my series of articles and talks entitled “speech and salvation,” focussing mainly on Paul’s letters. Tony Payne in a recent Briefing article addresses the same question in a more comprehensive and practical way. He asks: How…

  • Having your heart in your mouth (Romans 10:1-13)

    I preached this sermon recently at St Michael’s Anglican Cathedral, Wollongong. Right now, St Michael’s is engaging in a concerted effort to promote conversations about Jesus!

Tony makes a helpful point: rather than getting caught up with the question of whether we must evangelize, it’s far more useful to ask how we can encourage, inspire and equip more Christians to talk about Jesus with their friends. In this…

  • Why we must be seeker sensitive

    The phrase ‘seeker sensitive’ has dropped out of fashion recently. For those who haven’t heard the phrase, the idea of a ‘seeker sensitive service’ is a church gathering that focuses on the desires and needs of ‘spiritual seekers’—non-Christians with a thirst for knowing more about God. It aims to do everything possible to make it…
