Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “Two Kinds of Blindness” based on John 9:1-41 for the Fourth Sunday of Lent on March 30, 2014. Our Gospel reading today is a story of one physically blind who receives his spiritual sight, and others, supposedly possessing spiritual insight, who are actually blind. God sees in a different mode to how we see.

Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “Abraham and Christian Hope” based on Genesis 12:1-4 and Romans 4:1-5, 15-17 for the Second Sunday of Lent on March 16, 2014. When we seem to be at a dead end or a stuck place, the freedom of God is the source of our hope. The freedom of God means that He is not bound by how the world defines what is possible.
