If you’re chilling this evening, watch this Mother’s Day message by Tim Healy. The best message I’ve heard this year is live for just 24 hours (12 May 2019) on Riverview’s Facebook page.

Could you spend 2019 developing the knowledge and skills you need for Christian ministry?
Riverview College is offering an accredited Diploma of Ministry (10574NAT), with leadership classes and internship opportunities giving you a hands-on experience of practical ministry in one of the church’s departments.
We’d love to meet you, share all the details and answer your questions at the information night: 7pm 5 December 2018. It’s free, but please register.
Bibleview is a free Bible reading app that gives you two chapters of Scripture each day, along with an Observation (what it meant), Application (what it means to us), and Prayer (responding to what God said).
It takes you through the New Testament every year, and the Old every two years. You complete a book before going to another (except for Psalms). Each quarter you read a gospel, some epistles, some Torah and history, some Psalms, and some prophets — a balanced diet.
Bonus tips: Continue reading “Bibleview”

When God experienced our pain, he was restoring our joy.
There’s the grief you feel when you hoped your team would win, and they lost.
Then there’s deep grief — the grief you feel when you lose someone.
Jesus’ disciples faced that grief. They expected him to save the world. Jesus had a brave agenda for a new world, an agenda that challenged the people in power.
They expected a showdown, but they didn’t expect Jesus to lose. They didn’t expect him to lose his life.
Ever heard the Book of Exodus as a kingdom-of-God story? You can now.

How do you think the story will end?
Riverview Church runs a few Hot Topic nights each year, evenings when people can text in questions on a topic that churches tend to avoid as controversial of difficult. His Kingdom Come: Preparing for the End of the World was the topic — appropriate for the date (9/11).
Graham Irvine and I (Allen Browne) began by providing some background (15–20 minutes each), while the audience texted in their questions. You can listen to the audio: Continue reading “Q & A — end of the world”
