Weekly-ish sermon recordings from the Whitehouse Church in Canberra. If you’re a fan of Greg Boyd and Brian Zahnd among others, you’ll definitely notice the influence (and occasionally shameless borrowing) of their great ideas. The Whitehouse Church is mostly Neo-Anabaptist~ish, post-evangelical leaning in worldview. We see Jesus as the full expression of what God is like and try to build community around his teachings. If you have any questions or comments check out our website and send us ...
 
Butler Planning Services presents the Whitehouse Town Center Plan and Comprehensive Zoning Update Podcast. This program will provide meeting recordings and supplemental information as the process moves forward. Check out the project blog at http://whitehouseplan.blogspot.com/ for more information.
 
Previously, the Sufi Reverberations Podcast featured a poem, a story, a meditation, and a musical interlude that gave expression to one Sufi's reflections concerning the mystical dimension of Islam. The tenor of the Podcast has changed, and instead of presenting the sort of usual formatting that was noted earlier in this description, the Sufi Reverberation Podcast will give expression to commentaries of various kinds that explore a variety of different topics. The length of each program will ...

Whilst the cross has mostly been used as a symbol of service and sacrifice, it has also been turned into a symbol of power. Seeking military, political, or social power in the name of the cross of Christ is blasphemy. Committing acts of violence, greed, imperialism, judgement, genocide, superiority, and power over people in the name of the cross is…
 
I am grateful for you. For those who have become old friends. For those who are becoming old friends. I am grateful for the shared food and memories, and I am grateful for the shared projects and passions. I am grateful for the partnership that we have in the gospel to share good news of hope and salvation through Jesus. I am grateful for your gene…
 
Although I have covered and explored in some detail the extended arguments surrounding the issue of a constitutional standing for people that is entirely independent of both federal and state institutions of governance through other video documentaries that appear on this channel page of DrAnab, I realize that many people might only view or listen …
 
We were thrilled to have Jarrod join us for an amazing conversation that covered everything from spiritual formation and practice, to historical and contemporary Anabaptism, to what it means to ‘decolonise’ faith in a time of ecological crisis. Even narwhals get a mention! Jarrod McKenna is an award-winning peace trainer and activist who has spent …
 
We are not good at lament. Our suburban Christian faith is rarely resilient enough to survive significant suffering, sickness, disappointment, struggle, or setback. I know a lot of Christians who have been through challenges and put on a brave face whilst privately experiencing the erosion of their hope, joy, and faith. The inability of Christians …
 
Saint Ignatius of Loyola was a 16th century priest who co-founded and led the religious order called the Society of Jesus, or simply the Jesuits. In 1548 St Ignatius wrote Spiritual Exercises, a simple set of meditations, prayers, and other practices. Perhaps the most well known of these exercises is 'The Daily Examen'. This practice helps to build…
 
One of the defining blessings of my life has been the unwavering knowledge that my dad loves me and wants the best for me. The older I get, and the older my kids get, the more I see the sacrifices and investment that my dad made to be there for me growing up. I know that he loves me. I know that I don’t have to be afraid of him, and that he isn’t a…
 
These commands were not meant to be perceived as a new law. They were the basis of a new kind of community and a new kind of kingdom. Just as children learn their mother tongue simply by being exposed to a language, these new commands were to be the daily life of the Christian community such that they became second nature to new believers rather th…
 
Jesus had an entirely different set of priorities compared to the synagogue leader. Setting this woman free was more necessary than following the rules of the Sabbath. But this isn’t just a story about a woman who is bound, it is a story about how Israel is bound. Jesus' desire to set this daughter of Abraham free reflects his desire to set Israel …
 
Relatively recently, Alan Dershowitz, an American criminal and constitutional lawyer, has claimed that government has a right to forcibly vaccinate individuals in order to protect the health of the public in general. I do not believe that his claim is tenable, and while elucidating what I consider to be the errors in his way of thinking will take a…
 
The instruction here is short and simple: treat women with the respect they deserve as co-heirs of the grace of life, and don’t use your social and physical power to dominate women or your prayers will be hindered! This passage is not a treatise endorsing empire or kingship, the institution of slavery, or the patriarchal family, but rather a guide …
 
Faith isn’t knowing exactly what is going to happen. Faith is trusting the person who is telling you to jump. It is knowing their voice even though you can’t see them and trusting that they will catch you. A leap of faith may look like blind faith, but it is based on a foundation of trust. It may seem foolish but really it is wisdom to follow a tru…
 
Today we had Chevelle Hibberd sharing with us! "It’s humbling to remember that people who’ve spent their lives pondering the mysteries of God, whose minds and thoughts can go a million miles faster and higher and deeper than most, whose faith in God is unshakeable and profound, could still fall into the trap of shoehorning — and even augmenting — S…
 
The Parable of the Ten Minas is not what it seems. In our western culture we are accustomed to glorifying the rich noble and demonising the 'lazy servant'. But what if that isn't the point of this story at all? Despite his fear, the third servant lays the offense of the master at his feet. “You take what you don’t deserve, and you reap a harvest fr…
 
Jesus' message was scandalous to the religious, treasonous to the empire, and utterly captivating to the poor, disenfranchised, forgotten, broken, and ignored. The message of Jesus was, and is, beautiful. So beautiful that it’s guaranteed to threaten the status-quo and make all who believe a target for the world’s scorn.…
 
Each year around this time we ask people to prayerfully consider their financial commitment to the Whitehouse Church. We are a pretty small community and we do our best to keep our overhead costs to a bare minimum, so our budget is very modest at about $5000 a month. During the next couple weeks we are hoping you will fill out our online pledge for…
 
Hey friends, I'm still having some audio issues when recording. So if you notice it is a bit choppy please accept my apology. I'm pretty sure I have figured out the problem now so hopefully it'll be all fixed for next week. "To be connected to the vine is to be connected to one another. And we must do that with love and grace, forgiveness and compa…
 
He came so that we who were poor might become rich. How does that happen? Most of you are familiar with the term guilt-by-association. That means if I hang around with someone who has committed a crime, I may be considered guilty as well because of my close relationship with them. Turn that concept around and you’ve got the gospel. It is grace-by-a…
 
What does being a good neighbour look like to Jesus? Washing feet, serving widows and orphans, standing in front of those who accuse and disarming them, befriending the isolated, touching the untouchable, dismantling structures that dehumanise people, promoting the welfare and societal value and equality of disenfranchised people groups including w…
 
Today we had our very own wonderful Chevelle Hibberd share with us. "A faith community that doesn’t embrace doubt with understanding and trust in God’s wisdom isn’t interested in growth but in control. I can’t emphasise enough how important it is that we continue to extend grace and tenacious love to one another. This is the primary reason I decide…
 
Nicodemus was steeped in religious tradition that was generations old. His entire life was dedicated to honouring God’s rules but instead of bringing him freedom these rules had become a stumbling block to him. No amount of law keeping, scholarship, tithing, or tradition had allowed him to see the kingdom of God. And then this self-appointed Galile…
 
Sometimes awful things happen, and they are simply that, awful. They aren't a test. The world we live in is broken and the consequence of generations of sin and selfish choices is that our existence is riddled with pain and suffering that grieves both us and God. That is why God is going to reconcile all things to himself in Christ. That is why the…
 
The church is a community defined by love, not a creedal statement. It is not held together by a set of principles or dogged tolerance but rather by a deep experience of belonging. Accepting the invitation to be a member of God’s household means accepting an invitation to a shared life of redemptive love and a willingness to sacrifice for one anoth…

This is the fifth, and final, episode of a five-part series on the U.S. Constitution which explores the meaning of: The establishment clause of the 1st Amendment, along with the nature and scope of the 9th and 10th Amendments, as well as the guarantee clause of Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution. All of the foregoing is pursued in relation t…

All of the foregoing is pursued in relation to the roles…
 
Even with all the evidence pointing to Jesus’ true identity, John was nervous. He was in prison, captive to a man who would ultimately have him executed. And in that dark place he is asking himself, “Is it possible that I am wrong? Is it possible that Jesus isn’t really the one who is to come? Have I given my life to proclaim a gospel that isn’t ev…

This is the first of a five-part series on the U.S. Constitution which explores the meaning of: The establishment clause of the 1st Amendment, along with the nature and scope of the 9th and 10th Amendments, as well as the guarantee clause of Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution. All of the foregoing is pursued in relation to the roles of Congr…
 
If you can’t identify any area of change or growth in your theology or practice during the last season of your life, I would politely suggest that what you have is not unyielding faith, but more likely hardheartedness. If we are being transformed by a renewing of our minds and if we are working out our salvation daily it will be reflected in change…
 
Jesus begins his parable by saying there was a man that planted a vineyard. This is a little bit like saying, “A woman named Karen went into a store.” Now, we know what’s going on here… you’re already picturing a certain type of woman and a certain type of behaviour before I have explained anything! And so it is with Jesus in this parable. His audi…
 
Rather than saying ‘Don’t do to others what you don’t want them to do to you,’ Jesus taught, ‘Do unto others as you want them to do unto you.’ In a world that generally says you can do whatever you want so long as it doesn’t hurt anyone, Jesus goes further by teaching his disciples to actively initiate actions that will benefit others. In this way …
 
One of the few small blessings of the season we are in right now is that the world has actually started to redefine greatness. Right now, people are not impressed with billionaires, tyrants, celebrities, and sports stars. In this time of global grief, we are looking to the doctors, nurses, researchers, supermarket workers, delivery drivers, and gar…
 
Today's podcast is a little different as it is a guided time of reflective meditation on Matthew 6:25-34. The format of the reflection is based on a monastic practice known as 'Lectio Divina'. It is not meant to be a study method, rather it is a contemplative practice of reflection and prayer to encourage meeting with the Lord. The goal is not to r…
