New Preaching Series!

At St Luke’s Church Roseville, we are currently considering God’s revelation to and for His people as we listen for His voice and Instructions for us, as given us in the book of Deuteronomy. Together, I believe, we are currently growing in awe-struck wonder under God’s Word, as we become fellow-travelers with Israel, no less, […]

Face to face with Jesus

Dear Friends in our Faith, Last Sunday we parted with a question in our midst: have you come face to face with Jesus? You will recall, just before our last song and hearing the benediction (God’s “good words”) I pronounced this truth: “Sooner or later, we will! Sooner or later we will realise there comes […]

Serving others at St Luke’s

At St Luke’s we believe in serving our fellow human beings. It is part of our vision statement: “To Love God and to love His own…”.

Who am I really? The question with a “fluid” answer?

A person looks into a mirror and asks: “Who are you?’ Have you known such a moment? “Who am I? Who are you?” Well, in the words of Mercy Me’s song, Flawless, “Let me introduce you to …” But not before we pause again before the mirror… “Here I am again, Lord … please help […]

“Free” to choose ~ The attack on “guilty” or “innocent”

Sometimes the choices that we make, make us want to avoid the mirror, don’t they? You may know the feeling! You catch a glimpse of your image as you (and I!) pass by a mirror, and you think: “How could I? Who am I …?”! Some Pastors still sometimes see this: A man sits in […]
