TOAM08 – Mark Driscoll's Perspective On Newfrontiers

Mark Driscoll has posted a lengthy article on his blog about how he feels his trip to the UK is going so far. I thought I'd share a few extracts here. Since Tope is my pastor, I am so glad that he and Mark are getting on well."The Newfrontiers folks are a very healthy mix of Word and Spirit. They love the Bible and the leading of God the Holy Spirit. Sometimes in the States those who are charismatic are negatively influenced by health and wealth teachers who say that, in essence, if you have … [Read more...]

SERMON – How to be Missional Every Day by Tope Koleoso

I recently posted what I trust will be a series which will be about sermons that have changed my life. It is way too early for me to claim that this past Sunday's talk by my pastor and dear friend, Tope Koleoso, will be one of those. But I could do a lot worse than allow myself to be shaped by a talk like this. I have previously shared a list of talks Tope has given that are available online, but much as I loved those talks, I believe this may be the best sermon I have ever heard him preach.I … [Read more...]

Never to Forget Memorial Day

One of the joys of being a part of this online community is that I get to celebrate holidays I would not normally celebrate. As you read this, ironically I am probably over the Atlantic on my way to the USA for a business trip to Phoenix, Arizona. Although today is a national holiday in the UK, there isn't really a reason for it. We have a number of such holidays where the idea is simply to spend time with family.But today in America is Memorial Day. I like the idea of a day to cherish the … [Read more...]

Jubilee Church International Day

Today is one of the highlights in our church calendar. Once every year we celebrate our diversity by dressing up in national costumes of the many countries we represent as a congregation. There were 25 countries represented in a feature when each of them came up to the front in typical dress, to the sound of a typical piece of their music. After telling us a little about their nation, and praying, they read Psalm 86:9-10 in their own languages."All the nations you have made shall comeand worship … [Read more...]

MP3 On Multicultural Churches and Other Sermons by Tope Koleoso

I have just been listening to a message by my pastor, Tope Koleoso, who was recorded at a recent conference on building a multicultural church. I have become so used to what God has been doing these past couple of years at Jubilee that I sometimes need to remind myself that genuinely racially integrated churches are actually far from common. We truly have a lot to be grateful for. I really think you may well enjoy listening to Tope on this subject. The message can be downloaded or you can listen … [Read more...]

9th Most Read Post – Thanksgiving Sermon on the Importance of Gratitude

No. 9 on the list of most-read posts on this blog appeared on November 28, 2005, and simply linked to a sermon my pastor, Tope Koleoso, had preached on gratitude. Presumably it is a mark of the high percentage of my readers who are also preachers. It rates quite highly in a Google search for a "Thanksgiving Sermon."Tope's sermon was very warmly received at the time. Oddly, it was preached entirely by coincidence on the Thanksgiving weekend as he felt prompted to preach on gratefulness. I am … [Read more...]
