The musings of Syndal Baptist Church's Gen Y and Beyond Pastor

Whose church is your church?

Whose church is your church? Last Sunday morning (Feb 10, 2013) it was a privilege to be inducted as the Senior Pastor of Essendon Baptist Community Church. As a family we are very excited to have started here, and loving getting to know the people of this church and this part of our city. Since […]

What matters most?

Last night at Syndal Baptist Church, I shared with the people there some of what Jesus taught about what it was important for a person to do. He was asked by a person who we can assume had a good grasp of the 613 commandments found in the Old Testament because he was a teacher […]

One of my heroes…

Last Sunday at Syndal Baptist Church – I shared with the people there some amazing promises and big challenges from the book of Jeremiah. To really grasp the power of what it means for us today, we need to understand a bit about the person who said it… Jeremiah. An Old Testament Character who is […]

When exactly is “Gods Time”?

There have been several important experiences in my life, where afterwards I’ve been astounded at the “perfect timing” of something. Sometimes it’s been the visit at just the “right time” from someone whom I needed to see. There have been many times where someone has said something at just the “appropriate time” for me. There […]

“My days are numbered…”

“My days are numbered….” This was the idea we spent some time looking at in our 6pm Service at Syndal Baptist  on January 2. We took it from Psalm 90, a part of the bible written by Moses, in which he asks God this… “Teach us to number our days, so that we may gain […]

Time… where does it go??

Time … where does it go? Have you ever wondered where time went? Maybe you got totally engrossed in a movie or a book, played Playstation or Xbox, or maybe it was in conversation with a real person… I know that each of those settings and more are environments where it has at times felt […]

Good vs Evil :: An unseen battle shaping the visible world.

Even as I write that heading – there is a part of me that just thinks it sounds a little more like science fiction than reality! But … as those who were at Syndal Baptist Church last night learned – it is something which the bible challenges us to believe and engage in. Some of […]

“I have something to confess….”

Usually when I read that as a headline – I get either curious, or nervous. Either way it suggests that something I don’t know is about to become known! Confession is something that has an uncomfortable, uneasy and unnatural edge to it for me – it always has. So when someone else does it, or […]

Passion and Faith

Although I’ve had some understanding of the Christian faith for most of my life, it would be fair to say that my heart was engaged a long time before my head was. I had simple trust, and asked few questions. What brought me to a point of early conviction about Jesus Christ was a feeling […]

Am I missing something?

Last night at Syndal Baptist Church, I shared some thoughts from a part of the bible that I love – the Book of Acts. It tells the story of how the Christian church started, and what it was like to be a follower of Jesus in that time. There are a few reasons I love […]
