Not such a surprise was the quality and depth of John Neal's Father's Day sermon. We know he's a real Wordsmith as well as a great Pastor and a theologian faithful to the Bible. But this sermon was a real doozy. With John's classic wit, humility and his subtle humour he guides us through the minefield of gender politics of being a man - and a father - in 2016.
John preached this sermon at both our 8am and 10am services This version was recorded at the 10am service. Many Dads were out at Nativity kids, having breakfast with their kids , playing some great games and picking up a touch of Biblical teaching in there too. Men and women at both our morning services said they really appreciated what he had to say and many were looking forward to hearing it again.
Now, here it is - for those who want to hear it again, as well as for those Dads who missed out the riches of this feast. If you've not figured it out already, you can find it by going to our website Home page, and clicking "Sermons" at the right hand end of the pull down menu at the top of your screen. It's the sermon (not so strangely) entitled "Father's Day".
Most weeks, technology permitting, our Sunday sermons will appear there a few days after they've been preached. These will be good for listening to again, for those who can't make it to church, and small groups.
