Temple tax

Matthew 17:24-27 The temple tax 24 After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma temple tax came to Peter and asked, ‘Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?’ 25 ‘Yes, he does,’ he replied. When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. ‘What do you think, Simon?’ he asked. ‘From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes – from their own children or from others?’

Duncan’s Munro Adventures
Duncan Munros 10

Many of you will be aware that I have set a date for climbing my final Munro - 15th June. The date was fixed well in advance in order to enable my son Rory, who is now working abroad, to join me. We have had some epic days in the hills over the years. There is one potential “ banana skin” in my planned final Munro which has been at the back of my mind. In setting the date for my final Munro, I still had another 4 other Munros to complete in the

A message from Duncan about next Sunday’s sermon theme (am service)
Temple tax

It will be great to welcome Duncan back on Sunday morning after his recent sabbatical.  Here's a wee note from Duncan about the theme of the sermon: Taxation is a thorny issue in our society. The newspapers in recent years have been full of stories about wealthy people and large companies who avoid paying tax. In our morning service this coming Sunday we will discover that Jesus had something to say about taxation to his disciples.The New Testament

Troubled hearts: thoughts from John
Let not2

This morning, Johnathan preached on John 14:1 -    ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.’ I think this is a very meaningful text for today.  The world of the disciples seemed about to implode; in the bigger perspective of the New Testament a way of being for the Jewish people was about to be eradicated with the destruction of the Jewish Temple in AD70. We too live in an age of transition as the old (Modernity

Jonathan

‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.’ (John 14:1) Jonathan preached this morning on these words Jesus spoke to his disciples just before the crucifixion. The reasons why the disciples hearts might be troubled are described in the previous chapter:  they have learned that one of them would betray Jesus, that Peter would deny Jesus, and that Jesus, with whom they had spent their lives for the last three

Thoughts from John about this morning’s service
John D1

There were two things from the final song which struck me this morning. The song  is called ‘yet not I but through Christ in me’ (a reference to  Phillipians 4:13 – ‘I can do all things through him who gives me strength.’) The song focuses on the ways in which we are blessed by God through being ‘in,’  or ‘in union with’ Christ, and the resources to which this union with Christ gives us access. The first of the things which struck

Note of Jamie’s sermon this morning on the restoration of Peter
Jamie

This morning Jamie Grant was speaking on John 21:15-25, where Peter is restored following his triple denial of Jesus. Jamie used the passage to explore three themes. Firstly, as Peter did each of us can experience – and repeatedly experience for we repeatedly fail – a personal restoration by Jesus. Jesus offers each of us unconditional forgiveness and restoration, and the fact that we are loved, and restored brings us great joy and delight. Secondly,
