We are continuing our series “our souls need”
On Sunday Bill spoke the word looking at “our Souls need Relationships”
Genesis 2:18 (Message) “It’s not good for the Man to be alone; I’ll make him a helper, a companion.”
Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV):
Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[[a](https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+22%3A37-39&version=NIV#fen-NIV-23910a)] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.”
Mark 2:1-5 (NIV)
“A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. 2 They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them.
3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralysed man, carried by four of them.
4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on.
5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralysed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”
Sunday's sermon with Pastor Stephen Scott looked at ‘Our Souls need REVELRY’ – we need to delight in and enjoy the life that God has given us. Its primary to who we are! We aren’t some cosmic accident to simply pass through this world until we dissolve. Nor are we just cogs in a machine. We were created to delight, revel and enjoy God and all His goodness. And not only is it what we were made for, it is also GOOD FOR US.
Proverbs 17:22 says “A cheerful disposition is good for your health, gloom and doom leave you bone tired” (MSG)

Sunday's message by Pastor Sonya Bertram is called “A spiritual time”.
Why were the shepherds chosen by God? They were lowly, unknown and obscure.
Yet, the angel of the Lord appeared to them, announced the birth of the Saviour, and they, responding in simple faith came to worship the baby, and went on their way telling the good news.
Yet this is more than a heart-warming account of what took place over 2000 years ago. It is an example for each of us today.
Do we look at the birth of Christ as some tradition that is a tradition that we roll out every December, or do we sincerely accept the message and true purpose for Christ's coming to earth?
The shepherd’s lives were changed forever on that night. And unless the Christmas story changes our lives too we have missed its real meaning and purpose.
Let’s look at what we can learn from the shepherds.
Senior Pastor Bill brings the first in a short series in the lead up to Christmas.
A Disruptive Time can resonate with all of us.
Luke 1:35:37 NIV
35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”
Ruth Davidson shared the Word on Sunday bringing the Wisdom series to a close with the concluding topic Wisdom in our Witnessing.
30 Godly men are growing a tree that bears life-giving fruit, and all who win souls are wise
In our works
In our wisdom
In our wealth
In our ways
In our wellspring
In our waiting
In our words
In our witnessing
Pastor Stephen brought us a poignant sermon that followed in the current sermon series on Fruit of Wisdom and with God's perfect timing, Stephen spoke - that living in Adelaide over the past week, we have indeed needed to draw on patience and waiting.
A man's wisdom yields patience; it is to one's glory to overlook an offence.
Be still and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.
Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else guard your heart for it is the well spring of life”
Part of the WISDOM of the Bible is telling us which things truly are important - please connect in with Pastor Stephen as he explores the Word on the Fruit of Wisdom - in our Wellspring from Sunday's 10am service.
Pastor Bill spoke the Word on Sunday continuing in the series Fruit of Wisdom.
Proverbs 4:26 (NCV): “Be careful what you do, always do what is right”
Another translation says (NLT) “Mark out a straight path for your feet, stay on the safe path”
In this proverb, it highlights how important our actions are, we know what is the right path to take, a secure path, a morally higher path that honours God.
