“Remember the poor” – by Simon Pettit

This is a sermon that changed a movement. Anybody who has been in the same family of churches as me for any length of time will probably have heard mention of this sermon by Simon Pettit. Until now it has not been available to watch online. This really was a transforming message, and as a direct result of this sermon countless ministries to help the poor were started by Newfrontiers churches. The impact of this talk is still being felt today many years later.

If you are an Evangelical who is worried that looking after the poor will lead to the so-called “social gospel” then I commend this talk to you. This was really a gentle apostolic rebuke but it was full of grace, and clearly anointed by the Holy Spirit.

The photo came from my friend Lex, who also gives more background on this talk and its roots in Africa.
