Coming up in our life:
In Australia, it’s estimated that 45 per cent of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.* Mental illness has a way of reaching and touching just about everyone. Why does God allow this to happen? What resources does God offer in the face of such pain? And is, or should, there be a relationship between faith and mental health?

Catch up on our current sermon series
Have you ever felt like God is far away? Have you wondered if he remembers you? Have you prayed and wondered if anyone hears you? In psalms 42 & 43 we have a prayer of longing for God’s presence. It’s a song to sing in the darkness; it’s a song that we all need to sing in some seasons of our lives. How does this song help us to connect with God through dark times — to find what we so desperately need to survive — and even to grow more deeply connected to him through them?
When your world collapses around you, the nearly overwhelming temptation is to panic. Ps 46 knows all about such a moment, and not only calls us to a fierce fearlessness, but gives us the spiritual resources to do that. Learn from his wisdom.
We live in a pleasure/pain culture: what’s pleasurable is good, what’s painful is bad. Paul’s call to holiness in 1 Thessalonians 4 — to seek to please God more and more by living his way, even when it’s hard — doesn’t make much sense in a culture like ours. But what if pleasing God also brings pleasure? Paul believes it does, and shows us how pleasing God helps us to understand and express our sexual desires.
