Jesus was a most unconventional teacher. Rather than making disciples in a classroom setting, he taught his followers on the road, life-on-life. If we are to make disciples using the pattern of Jesus, we will need to do the same.
In our fifth talk on “A Life Well Lived,” Daniel Sih discusses the importance of structured and organic discipleship, including the role that organic teaching plays in the formation of a disciple.
Jesus had three great loves — a love for the father, a love for extended family, and a love for a lost and broken-hearted world.
Daniel Sih re-boots his series on “A Life Well Lived” by teaching us how to pattern our lives on the pattern of Jesus. As we learn to balance our life according to the principle of UP / IN / OUT, we mature in our faith, grow as disciples, and form cultures where people look and act more like Jesus.
Jesus said: “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” But how do we love one another, at a distance, during a pandemic?
In this talk, Daniel Sih speaks into our current predicament, drawing lessons from the past, from scripture, and from science, to suggest practical ways for our churches to respond in love, during the coronavirus.
He explains our reasoning behind stopping church services, outlining a practical plan to strengthen community bonds, through the use of digital technology.
Note: this will be our last sermon for some time, until we resume services post pandemic.
Jesus suggested that there are two types of people in this world. There are people who hear and discuss ideas, and those who put his words into practice.
Daniel Sih continues his series on “A Life Well Lived” by teaching us how to hear and follow God’s voice in everyday life. We can practice the words of Jesus by identifying kairos moments, and by walking the learning circle as a community.
Jesus gave us an important mission: “Go into all the world and make disciples.” The word disciple (‘mathetes’ in Greek) appears 269 times in the New Testament and is a central idea for those who wish to follow Jesus. But what is a disciple? And how do we embrace the practices of discipleship today?
In this talk, Daniel Sih unpacks the D-Word, providing practical and theological foundations to help us ‘learn through imitation’ as disciples of Jesus.
