becoming fully free
Join us at Student Soul as we explore what it means to be fully free in our personal lives and as a community. Discover how the vision of freedom that God invites us into is both similar and different to the world around us.
What does “called, equipped, sent” mean? Part 1
Student Soul’s ethos is summed up in three words: “called, equipped, sent.” To be called is to claim your identity as a human with purpose and direction given by the creator. It’s an invitation to follow Jesus and live into your true identity, choosing a life of meaning and purpose. The general call of God lies upon all humanity, but as you align yourself toward Christ, you may discover a unique and specific call, leading you deeper into God and yourself. Welcome to the journey!
The secret nourishment of sacrificial love
In this sermon, Tom Mepham reflects on the story of Ruth in the Bible and how it teaches us to see the world as a place filled with glory and goodness, even in the midst of emptiness and pain. He encourages listeners to give space to their own pain, to focus on giving out to others, and to be open to the future. Mepham suggests that we should be willing to embrace a path of service and faithfulness, and to pursue a path of life and hold on to hope, even in the midst of uncertainty.
“C’mon, Let’s Do This” – Transformation in Mark 1:29-45
This sermon from Tom Mepham focuses on three key takeaways from Mark 1:29-45. Firstly, the transformative work of the kingdom does not thrive in hype. Secondly, uncovering this transformation requires focused prayer. Finally, Jesus is a trustworthy leader in this journey of transformation, and we should embrace compassion and generosity towards others. The challenge is to pursue depth, activate prayer, and embrace compassion.
