Hannah and the Importance of Private Prayer

August 12, 2017

Hannah is a relatively unknown Old Testament figure we encounter in the early chapters of 1 Samuel. Her experience of agony and desperation, however is well known to anyone who's lived long enough in a broken world. It is because of this shared experience and Hannah's approach to it, that us moderns can learn a great deal from this woman.

This talk was given by Johan Erasmus.

Esther: The Silent Presence of God

August 10, 2017

Schemes, Beauty Pageants, Politics, Genocide, Sex & Alcohol... The Old Testament book of Esther has it all. As a matter of fact it reads like a Game of Thrones style soap opera, full of morally questionable figures. Even the so called 'good guys' aren't very kosher (Pun intended)! Yet through the mess and without being mentioned - the silent hand of God is at work. Not through plagues or sea openings, but in the everyday stuff.

‘n Omgekeerde Koninkryk

July 21, 2017

Stel jouself voor jy kom by die werk en jou werkgewer vertel hy het reeds jou werk vir die maand gedoen en jou salaris op dei 1ste van die maand inbetaal.  Stel jouself voor die president van die land slaap op straat sodat iemand sonder 'n huis in sy bed kan slaap.  Verbeel jou die koningin van England moet wagstaan by die hek sodat haar wagte veilig kan slaap in Buckingham Palace.  Wat kan ons leer by Jesus van leierskap?

Pluralisme: Verskillende paaie na dieselfde God?

July 21, 2017

Lei verskillende paaie na dieselfde God? Dien Moslem, Christen, Jood en Hindoe nie maar eintlik dieselfde God nie?  Dit laat 'n mens nogal wonder, glo ek nie maar net oor dit wat my ouers my geleer het nie?

Christianity is a Joke: God and the Power of Humour

June 18, 2017

This talk was given by Johan Erasmus.

It is the test of a good religion whether you can joke about it... Perhaps that is why angels can fly because they take themselves lightly. - GK Chesterton

A key indication to whether you 'caught' a joke is to laugh at the appropriate time. Your laughter indicates your comprehension. Perhaps one can argue that if you have never laughed during prayer, bible study or worship that you didn't 'get it'. Maybe it is our religious fear of blasphemy that prevents us from laughing? Yet it would seem that humour is a powerful tool in the hand of God, which is why it permeates the Bible. It not only helps to understand ourselves better - it also makes God more accessible. Many will tell you that Christianity is serious and therefore no laughing matter. I would like to suggest that because it is serious, laughing matters! It is funny, because it is true...
