The Power of Anger

Stephen looks at the contrasts between someone who is quick to anger and someone who does not get angry at all, and argues that neither of these is biblical. All of us should be angry at something - there is power in a biblically-based righteous anger that is a response to a threat against something or someone we love. Stephen demonstrates that God’s righteous anger is simply a reflection of his great love for us.

Palm Sunday

Matthew 21:1- 17. The Very Rev Dr Ian McNie examines the account of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. While the enthusiasm from the crowd was shallow and the opposition from the religious leaders was revealing, there was a firmness from Jesus that was convincing.
