Sunday Playlist – Acting Like Jesus – Healing

In Acts 9:32-43, we meet a woman who has two names; “Tabitha” in Aramaic and “Dorcas” in Greek. She was just one of those unsung heroes of the church community. Luke describes her as full of good works and charity and she was part of a group of widows who made clothes by hand. When she died, the weeping widows did what most of us do when we lose someone we love. They clung to items and memories associated with her; the clothes she’d made. They showed them to Peter as they grieved the loss of their close friend.

Here are some songs I’ve chosen that will help us reflect on this story…

Sunday Playlist – Acting Like Jesus – Faith Not Fear

Within 3 years of Saul’s dramatic conversion in Damascus, his life is under threat and he has to escape with the help of some disciples. This became a recurring theme throughout the rest of his life.

Saul paid a really high price to follow Jesus, but he was willing to count up the cost and decided it was well worth it.

In this episode of our Sunday Playlist podcast, I share some songs that explore this theme…

Sunday Playlist – The Gospel Breaks New Ground – A City Opens Up

We have reached chapter 8 in the whirlwind story of Acts and, accelerated by the death of the first Christian martyr, Stephen, the message of Jesus as the risen Lord of all has started to break new ground.

Often life can be like that can’t it? Unexpected and painful situations can often be our greatest means of growth.…

Sunday Playlist – The Challenge of this New Life

Acts 5:12-42 is a passage filled with signs and wonders, fear of violence, challenge to authority, weighing up arguments and fighting against God! Here’s some extra songs that link with our service today.

Sunday Playlist – The Challenge of Generosity

The story of Ananias and Sapphira is a tale of two extremes: great generosity & solidarity on the one hand; lies & judgement on the other. Here are some songs which reflect on these themes…

Sunday Playlist – Acts 4:1-31

As we begin a new week, I hope these songs that we didn’t get to use in our service will remind you that following Jesus is far from ‘safe’. It may not be easy but it is so incredibly good.
