Shoes, chickens and Hebrews

I really enjoyed preaching at Heaton Baptist Church yesterday. Shouldn’t have worn those shoes though, my feet were killing me! I’ve been told the sermon is on the church website if anyone’s interested. Of course, you won’t be able to see the clip of Chicken Run which was the real highlight of the day. The sermon was called ‘And now that we’ve got that all sorted …’ and is a summary of 20 sermons on the Letter to the Hebrews. It deals with how we can still keep Jesus as our focus in a post-modern world and how despite the challenges we face we can still look forward to amazing things to come http://www.heatonbaptist.org/?publications/notes/archive/?SermonNotes-2012-07-08-am.mp3
