Costa del Sol (West) Church

"Hate, at the heart of this kind of sin, is not negated by bombing, by punishment or some eye for an eye revenge. It is negated by the love of a tortured and crucified God coming into a room and wishing peace on those who were quite prepared to run off when he is arrested. The darkness of sin is only overcome by a change of minds, by love, trust and forgiveness - and not just at the personal level but particularly at the national level too."

Sermons and thoughts

 

It is not always possible for those who would wish to be at church on a Sunday, to be there, so here are some (not all!) sermon notes - for what they're worth!

 

We follow what is called the Revised Common Lectionary, which is very similar to the readings being read in many churches at the same time throughout the world.  Each year has a gospel book as a theme to the seasons.  2015 was Mark, 2016 was Luke, Advent 2016 onwards was Matthew and Advent 2017 onwards is back to Mark.  There is a continuity about the teaching from the gospel writers which is useful to follow.

 

Sermons, of course, depend on delivery, on the hearers and the readings as much as content, so although the sermons are briefly outlined here, they are never going to be the same as being part of the community that is praying 'Let the words of my mouth and the thoughts of all our hearts come from you, O Lord.'

 

Our preaching is deeply rooted in the Bible, but speaks in our own context and the rationality of today.  It is always about love and good news, because nothing beats the opportunity to live an abundant life walking with Christ.
