White (space) Christmas - Love All

Posted by stjohnsdiamondcreek in Christmas

In our final sermon in the series on 'White (space) Christmas', Jeremy Watson considers how we can relate to others in a way that reflects the true spirit of Christmas. We look at Philippians 2:1-11 and the sacrificial humility of Jesus.

White (space) Christmas - Give More

Posted by stjohnsdiamondcreek in Christmas

Our third topic in the 'White (space) Christmas' series is 'Give More'. How can we be truly generous at Christmas, a time that demands so much from us already? We find help in the story of the birth of Jesus (Matthew 1:18-25), who was 'God with us', the greatest gift ever given.

White (space) Christmas - Spend Less

Posted by stjohnsdiamondcreek in Christmas

This week in the lead up to Christmas we consider the greatest threat to 'white space' at this time of year - the demands of spending and keeping up with the obligations of the festive season. This can reveal to us our 'slavery' to money and its place in our lives.

White (space) Christmas - Worship Fully

Posted by stjohnsdiamondcreek in Christmas

In our month leading up to Christmas, we are thinking about how we can celebrate this season in a way that honours the meaning of Jesus's birth. Tim Johnson looks at why we need to create 'white space' in order to see what is important, and how to focus on worshipping Jesus in our whole lives.
