Ordinary – Episode 11 – The sovereignty of God, part 1
Over the next two podcasts we'll be talking about God's sovereignty. Graham and Mark recently delivered a series of sermons at Christ Church on the sovereignty of God and how that works out in the world. But this is one of those topics where there are a diversity of views held by different Christians, and so in these two episodes of Ordinary we are debating two views of sovereignty.

Ordinary – Episode 10 – Forgiveness
In today's episode we're talking about forgiveness. Forgiveness can be tricky to get our heads around when it becomes a sort of necessary reality in our lives. Graham and Mark help us to unpick the major differences between what the world thinks forgiveness means, versus what the Bible says it is. And we think about the Biblical model of forgiveness and how it works itself out in the difficult situations. The post Ordinary – Episode 10 – Forgiveness appeared first on Christ Church Haywards...

Graham and Mark can help us see why reading the Bible is central to the Christian life, and we talk honestly about some of the road blocks that we all face when trying to be consistent with reading. And then we share a few tips and techniques we use in...
Ordinary – Episode 8 – Work
What does the Bible have to say about work? What does it look like to be a Christian in the workplace, in the every day tasks I carry out, but also if I'm face with opposition, or if I'm asked to compromise on my beliefs in some way?

Ordinary – Episode 7 – Hospitality
In this episode we're focusing on ordinary hospitality. Graham and Mark flesh out why hospitality is so important for Christians, both in the church family but also in the context of the wider community in which you live. Viewing hospitality through the right lens - through the God lens - helps us to see how welcoming people into our homes is a deep reflection of the God who welcomes all kinds of people - including the stranger, the outsider, the disenfranchised - into his great feast. The...
Ordinary – Episode 6 – Serving
This week our topic is serving in the church. We cover the fundamentals of why we do serve in the church, who we are serving, and how we can serve the church, but we also touch on some other issues like: Should we thank people when they serve in the church? Do church leaders serve as well as work for the church? And how can we make sure our lives are not so dominated by church service we never make time to meet and build relationships with those outside the church in order to be an effective...
