Praise, Prayer & Preaching sermon audio
Listen to the Rev Dr Keith Garner’s sermon from this week’s Praise, Prayer & Preaching service.
By Rev Dr Rick Dacey
This week the Rev Dr Rick Dacey explores the reaction of Christ’s hometown congregation to the news that the kingdom of God was near. Unable to imagine a carpenter’s son as a worthy teacher, we see their offence when Christ calls them to live out God’s message of good news, transformation and hope. That Christ was not able to perform miracles in His hometown may have been considered by some as a failure. Rather it was the point at which He sent His disciples to change lives and transform communities. Christ also sends us to continue His work in Word and deed, and the world needs to see his message lived out in our words and in our body language.
