Sermon: The Wanderer: A Famished Land

Each week, Pastor Kim will provide resources to accompany the sermon series, including a Spotify playlist, a book recommendation, and a tool to help you apply what you're learning. This week includes a list of God's promises and a book recommendation.

Start by listening to the sermon, "The Wanderer: A Famished Land" then check out the resources below.

Resource Video: Bringing Wanderers Home

Pastor Kim and Sharelle Dayco discuss how to bring wanderers home.

Open Spotify and listen to the playlist.

The purpose of this playlist is to help you live the gift that is your life!!!

Hopefully the Holy Spirit will connect you to the Word, reminders of God’s desires for the human race, understandings of how our neighbors engage with life and much more! Many of these songs will be from artists who may not personally know Jesus—they are here because all good things are taken up into the life of God and belong to God. He provided the resources to create these songs and when they are shared they become part of the good gifts that God gives us.

Every week new songs will be added based on new themes that arise from our time in the Word on Sundays! I hope you enjoy!

Please email me any song suggestions you might have:

A Guide to Overcoming Condemnation/Accusation

This tool is based on the work of  Timothy Keller in his Fellowship Group Handbook

A Guide to Overcoming Temptation

This tool is based on the work of  Timothy Keller in his Fellowship Group Handbook

Book Recommendation

On the Road with Saint Augustine: A Real World Spirituality for Restless Hearts can be purchased here.

A North African bishop who lived 1,600 years ago might not strike most moderns as a likely compatriot. As Liz Bruenig pointed out at a recent Trinity Forum discussion with Smith, Augustine is one of the rare ancient thinkers who somehow still has haters. But Smith's Augustine is not the strict, original-sin-preaching moralist found in the pages of The New Yorker or on an exvangelical Twitter feed. He's another wanderer on the same roads of our secular age: an ambitious young man, yearning for friendship and acceptance, seeking recognition for his intellect, pursuing positions of power and influence, trying at all costs to excape the constraints of his provincial hometown and the silly religion of his domineering mother.

Augustine might make Christianity believable for you even if you've heard it all, been there, done that, and left the stupid Christian T-shirt at home. Here's a Christianity to consider before you stop believing. Augustine might make Christianity plausible again for those who've been burned—who suspect that the "Christianity" they've seen is just a cover for power plays and self-interest, or a tired moralism that seems angry all the time, or a version of middle-class comfort too often confused with the so-called American Dream.
