Sermon Snap

The story this week is about Jacob dreaming of his stairway to heaven. Here's a snippet from the sermon so you can decide whether or not it is worth coming to church on Sunday.


It is an intense experience for Jacob… an encounter between himself and God… an encounter that is prayer… which is the simplest explanation of it all… He has been conscious of an encounter with the divine… enough for him to say in the morning…“God is truly in this place”…


But the thing is… who is changed by this encounter?… When we pray… there is a lot of asking for things to change… for God to change something… God to do something… and so my question has always been… does prayer change God… or what God is doing?… Surely we invest a lot and trust the principle that God does not change… Indeed we are called to do God’s will… rather than ask God to do ours…


When Jacob prays here… God isn’t changed… Jacob is…
