In the letter to the Philippians, Paul writes: Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Martyn unpacks this as an imperitive to put into action the one command of love one another from Jesus which he had distilled from the two greatest commands - love the lord your God and love your neigbour as yourself.
What get's you excited in life? For Zoe and Tim, it's Christmas (or other similar 'life nostalgia') - but do we get as excited about the Kingdom? From the challenging verses from Revelation to the Kingdom parables, Tim and Zoe show us that God really wants us to live in joy and not in fear - to enjoy life and live in excitement for the Kingdom - but not just a kingdom in the far-off distance, but a kingdom within us, with a king that reigns in our hearts. (Sadly, some parts of this talk are missing, but the majority remains.)

This morning Tony draws our attention to the language used around Jesus' healing miracles. The tenth leper returns and Jesus tells him that his faith has made him better - but it turns out the word used is more often translated as 'saves'. How does that change the relationship between healer and healed? How does that change our relationship with Jesus? Tony explores the lessons we can learn and put into practice in our lives.
We always find ourselves somewhere in between the mountain tops and the valley in life. Many bible characters also saw the valleys but we learn from so many of them that they looked to God to help them rise again. Malcolm encouraged us not to go to the valleys without visiting the mountain tops, not to blame God for people's failings and to look to the mountain mover, not the mountain as we learn to let God move us and our hearts.
