Note: If my sermons look to have been few and far between lately, it’s because they are. Since July 2012 I’ve been in a kind of unofficial sabbatical, with no formal ministry engagement.

A practical alternative to playing or downloading individual sermons from this page is to use Apple’s iTunes to access my sermons as a podcast. Click to view my podcast in your iTunes software. From there you can play or download particular sermons, or subscribe to the podcast. You can read about podcasts in the iTunes help menu.

You may not get answers to all of life’s riddles and mysteries. But you can centre your life now on the Creator who is the source of your life and its meaning.
There are really just two ways to live in relation to material wealth: Materialism and Contentment. Whether poor or rich (and remember, they’re very relative terms), you can be content by receiving all you have as a gift but seeking joy only from God the great giver.
