The word “Christian” appears in the bible a handful of times, but the word “disciple” is scattered throughout the scriptures. So what is a disciple? How do we make disciples? And how can we be better together at making disciples in the context of community?
This is our final talk in the Better Together series, by Daniel Sih.
Mission is an adventure and we are better together on mission. But in a hyper-individualised society, what does this look like in practice? How can we create patterns and rhythms to collectively connect with friends who don’t yet know Jesus?
In this talk, Daniel Sih explains the great mission strategy of Jesus (Mark 6: 6-13) sharing his own experiences of being called to serve as an overseas missionary to Hobart, Tasmania.
Most of us are interested in community, but struggle to break out of the isolation of our culture. But life is better together when we share our lives with others in the service of Jesus.
In this new series “Better Together,” Daniel Sih shares his experiences of living in a village in Vanuatu and paints a vision for what it might look like to live and act communally as God’s people (Acts 2: 42-47).
We live in a world of dark and light, where things that are good and life-giving are mixed together with pain and brokenness. In this talk, Daniel Sih shares reflections from his time on Sabbatical, focusing on the parable of the wheat and weeds.
Human sexuality is wonderful, complex and personal, but what is the purpose of sex?
Does God have an opinion about how we use our bodies? How is the physical act of having sex connected with our emotional and spiritual selves? What does the bible have to say about soul ties? And how might we resist sexual immorality?
In this talk, Daniel outlines two false beliefs that have impacted church and culture, providing a positive vision for how we might embrace a biblical view of sex.
Freedom is one of our most important values in Australia. But what is freedom and what does it look like to be truly free?
In this talk, Daniel explains the challenges of defining freedom through popular culture. He examines the biblical imagination of personal freedom and demonstrates how freedom requires logical limits in the areas of health, money and sexuality.
The Beatles once suggested that “all you need is love” … but what IS love?
In this talk, Michael Wood explains the importance of defining love by something other than itself. He outlines four different Greek concepts for love, which are Storge (family affection), Philia (friendship), Eros (romantic) and Agape (divine love).
All of us need love. Love is one of our highest emotions. We search for love in many places, even if there is confusion about how to live out our most intimate relationships.
This talk introduces a new series called ‘Longing for Love,’ exploring the bible’s perspectives on sex, sexuality and gender. We outline a framework for the series and explore the importance of starting with the revelation; ‘God IS love.’
It can be hard to live in a culture that does not believe in God, particularly when we experience pressure to conform. In this talk, Daniel Sih shares two stories from the book of Daniel, to help us live faithfully as a remnant in exile. This talk also summarises the series as a whole.
