The Rev. Sam Ferguson: “Paul’s Goal for Your Life” (Col. 1:9-14)

October 2, 2019

Here is the third in a series of sermons on Paul’s Epistle to the Colossians, by the Rev. Sam Ferguson of Falls Church Anglican in Virginia.  This is another very good message – well worth the time.


The Rev. Jonathan Redfearn: “Facing Dark Days” (Psalm 54)

September 30, 2019

From the good people of Jesmond Parish Church in the United Kingdom, here is a message by the Rev. Jonathan Redfearn, titled “Facing Dark Days”. It is based on Psalm 54 and the YouTube notes say “Whilst writing Psalm 54 David was under intense pressure that seemed never ending; he was chased by his enemy and constantly in fear for his life. We may be facing similarly distressing situations or see them in the world around us. So how does knowing the Lord help David, and indeed us, to face these dark days? As we read through the Psalm we see David responding to his trials by prayer, by remembering truths about God and by holding fast to future hope. A wonderful model for us.”

From the Beeson Institute of Anglican Studies: a podcast on “How to Read the Bible”

September 29, 2019

I came across another podcast from the Beeson Institute of Anglican Studies that is interesting to me because it addresses reading the Bible.  Its title is How to Read the Bible and it features Alastair Roberts, who is the author of Echoes of Exodus: Tracing Themes of Redemption Through Scriptures, co-written with Andrew Wilson (March, 2018), and the forthcoming Heirs Together: A Theology of the Sexes (Crossway, 2019). Alastair is a Fellow at the Theopolis, Davenant, and Greystone Institutes, and here he is talking with Dr. Gerald McDermott of Beeson.

In this podcast they are discussing the public reading of Scripture, interconnections between diverse parts of Scripture, and reading Christologically.  The transcript can be read here.

Dr. Brad Littlejohn: “Anglicanism’s Catholicity: Richard Hooker as a Guide for the Church Today.”

September 27, 2019

Speaking at Christ Church Anglican South Bend in Indiana recently, Dr. Brad Littlejohn of the Davenant Institute gave a presentation on “Anglicanism’s Catholicity: Richard Hooker as a Guide for the Church Today.”  This is a lecture well worth the listening as he does indeed show Hooker’s continuing relevance for us today.  (If anyone is looking for a church home in the South Bend, Indiana area, Christ Church would be worth considering!)

From the Rev. Thomas McKenzie: another podcast on the 2019 ACNA Book of Common Prayer

September 26, 2019

Here is the third in a series of podcasts by the Rev. Thomas McKenzie of Redeemer Anglican in Nashville on the 2019 ACNA Book of Common Prayer.  (If you are in a parish that is moving to this BCP, you may find these quite helpful.)  In this one, he talks about the Eucharist in this BCP.

Episode Three: The Eucharist

The Rev. Dick Lucas: Five messages on the Gospel of Mark

September 24, 2019

Today I came across a series of audio messages by the Rev. Dick Lucas that was given at St. Helen’s Bishopsgate in London, on the Gospel of Mark.  The notes on St. Helen’s site say “This series summarises the thrust and key themes of Mark’s Gospel. The talks were given after the completion of ‘Mark revisited volumes 1 and 2’ series of talks. It serves both as an epilogue and a useful prologue to ‘Mark revisited’ for the first-time listener. It is aimed in the first instance at the Bible teacher, but all will benefit.”

These are, as always, very much worth hearing, and you can hear the whole series here.  These are short messages so I am just linking to the entire series:

The Rev. Sam Ferguson: “The Gospel Bears Fruit in Colossae” (Colossians 1:3-8)

September 23, 2019

Here is the second in a series of sermons on Paul’s Epistle to the Colossians, by the Rev. Sam Ferguson of Falls Church Anglican in Virginia.  This is a very good message – well worth the time.

Now available: another episode of the “Miserable Offenders” podcast on “Knowing God in the Liturgy” by Peter Toon

September 22, 2019

From our friends at The North American Anglican, here is the latest episode of their podcast, Miserable Offenders.  In this episode, Father Isaac Rehberg and Jesse Nigro discuss the importance of Common Prayer for common theology as they unpack more of Peter Toon’s “Knowing God Through the Liturgy.” As always this is worth listening to and I commend this podcast to you.

From the Anglican Diocese of the Living Word: an interview with Abp. (retired) Peter Jensen

September 21, 2019

Here, from the Anglican Diocese of the Living Word, is their podcast interview with Peter Jensen, retired Archbishop of Sydney.  Their blurb describes him as “a hero of the faith” – and I would have to agree.  In this interview he talks about his conversion, the current state of the Church, GAFCON, and his 2005 Boyer Lectures: “The Future of Jesus.”

From Church Society: the Rev. Andrew Towner on “What is Anglicanism and why does it matter?”

September 19, 2019

Speaking at the Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference 2019, the Rev. Andrew Towner gave a presentation on “What is Anglicanism and why does it matter?”  This talk on why defining Anglicanism matters is well worth the listening.
