“Walk the Walk.”

LPUC eNews – Sunday 29 August 2021

There is no in person worship this Sunday due to the current COVID restrictions, however you can still watch the service online.

James 1:17-27“Walk the Walk.”

Alan is going to look at two things from today’s reading.  Anger and being exhorted to act on Jesus’ teaching.  There is a lot of anger in the world today, why do people get angry?  Many people are easily angered when they’re already experiencing negative feelings. Anger can be caused by frustration, hunger, stress, fatigue, illness, or boredom. It is a natural emotion.  A person is also more likely to become angry when the situation is perceived to be unjust or unfair, preventable, intentional, someone else’s fault or just if one feels insulted.

Another important verse in today’s reading from James 1:17-27 – is verse 22 “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

“Walk the Walk.”  Alan.

John Anderson Direct: With Greg Sheridan, Journalist, Author and Commentator.  In this Direct interview, John is joined by Greg Sheridan, widely-respected foreign editor for The Australian. They discuss the Christian foundations of Western civilisation and the profound importance of religion at a societal, cultural and individual level. They delve into the deep rationality that often undergirds Christian faith, and question the capacity of atheistic philosophies to truly nourish the human soul.

Greg Sheridan is one of Australia’s most influential national security commentators, who is active across print media, television and radio and also writes extensively on culture. He has written eight books. His latest, Christians: The Urgent Case for Jesus in Our World, is a compelling argument for the modern relevance and importance of the New Testament. As foreign editor of The Australian, he specialises in Asia. He has interviewed Presidents and Prime Ministers across the world.

50 Risks to take with your kids by Daisy Turnbull.  ‘This book provides an easy-to-use framework of challenges for children aged up to ten.  You’ll find risks that build physical skills, social confidence and character development, plus some all-important parenting risks that will encourage you to think a little differently about raising children.  This book is not about developmental KPIs, and it’s certainly not about judgement.  It’s about teaching kids to recognise and assess risk before they enter those ‘risky’ teenage years, and about readying them to take on life and all that it brings.  And most importantly it’s about having fun and connecting as a family along the way.’

Selfie Dad DVD.  Parenting is no joke!  In this light-hearted family film, one dad shakes off a mid-life crisis and reconnects with his family … with his Bible in one hand and his phone in the other.  Featuring Michael Jr. and Chonda Pierce.
