Reflections on Grace

From our church bulletin today. O to grace how great a debtor Daily I’m constrained to be! Let that grace, Lord, like a fetter, Bind my wandering heart to Thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, Prone to leave the God i love; Take my heart, O, take and seal it, Seal it from Thy courts above! Robert Robinson Everything is of grace in the Christina life from the very…

GBA 2016

I’m heading out to lecture the students at GBA once more. This year, I’ve struggled greatly with my material. Pastor Roy asked me to lecture on “Reformed Church Administration”. If we spend a moment to break that down, I’m good with “reformed” and “church”. I can lecture on that, or prepare lectures on that no probs.…

Real Books vs e-Books

I’ve been slowly working my way through an informative book on historical theology called Calvin’s Company of Pastors. I bought it as an ebook at a discounted price of about $5 on Amazon a few years ago. Reading it on my Kindle, I found it somewhat frustrating as I couldn’t readily jot down notes in the margins. Now, I realise you can highlight and type notes in the…

Web Traffic

For the first time in a long while, I found myself with nothing on my calendar for a Monday day. So I sat and read for several hours, then decided to do some housekeeping on the church website. Looking in to the details of the past month or so, I was intrigued to find that 3.7% of all traffic to the SLHCC website is from Tokyo! By way of comparison, the church website…

Back…Again…At Least for a While…

I’ve blogged on and off for about 10 years. To be honest, more off, than on. So without any promises about how long this stint will be, I’ve decided to restart on my blogging. We’ll see how long it lasts! 🙂 In the meantime, here’s an assortment of random pics from earlier this year… Chris &…

Reflections on The Law

We’re taking a short break in our sermon series through the Gospel of Luke, and over the next 3 weeks, we’ll have a mini-series through The Ten Commandments. In preparation for it, here are some quotes reflecting on The Law. The law sends us to Christ to be justified, and Christ sends us to the law to be regulated. –    John Flavel God forbids sin not to prevent us…

T4G 2016

Together for the Gospel Conference 2016 will commence in a little over a week. And on Monday (4 April), I’ll be leading a group of 2 pastors, 2 seminary students and others interested parties to attend this conference together. Looking forward to all that God will do – not just over the course of the time we spend together, but through each of our lives in to the…

SLHCC Sermons

I’ve had a few people ask about podcasts of our Sunday sermons. Previously, we used to update to iTunes, making podcasts an easy process for listeners – just subscribe and a new sermon gets downloaded automatically whenever it’s uploaded to the SLHCC site. However, there’s something broken with the iTunes update that we can’t quite figure out… So in the meantime,…

O Captain, My Captain…

Mr West. Former Headmaster of Trinity Grammar School. A wonderful teacher, a visionary, an inspirer of men, much loved by Trinitarians far and wide. His passing has been mourned by many. For a few days after news spread across the Trinity community, former students scattered throughout the world posted a variety of tributes to him. That in itself is a testament to not…

Total Depravity

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23    Earlier this week, I briefly skimmed through an article about the discovery of the remains of a massacre of prehistoric nomad/hunters in Kenya. I didn’t really think much of it, and just filed it away in the memory banks as something I could refer to and use at…
