Rev. Seli engages with Matthew's Gospel (chapter 10) in which Jesus declares that he brings a sword and will set family against one another, as well as the story of Hagar and Ishmael being cast aside by Abraham (Genesis 21) - and wonders what any of this has to do with Pride Week, Indigenous Peoples and being Christian! (it ain't easy!)
Rev. Seli engages with the story of Abraham's vision and Sarah's laughter (Genesis 18:1-15) as well as Matthew's telling of Jesus telling us the the "Harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few" (Matthew 9:35 - 10:23) and wonders about the ridiculous nature of faith and what it is that we are actually meant to do as Christians in 2017.
Rev. Seli engages and wonders about the theology of the Holy Trinity... he provides some of his own thoughts about his experience of God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.
Rev. Norm Seli engages with the story of Paul preaching at the Areopagus about the "Unknown god" (Acts 17:22-31) and imagines a similar encounter today at Yonge Dundas Square... with himself as Paul (no ego, there).
Reflecting on Mother's Day and John's Gospel (14:1-14) in which Jesus says that he is the Way, the Truth and the Life... as well as warning that "No one comes to the Father but through me"... Rev. Seli tries to reconcile the radical inclusivity of Jesus ministry with this exclusive statement.
Rev. Norm Seli engages with the 23rd Psalm and John's Gospel (10:1-19); wonders what it means to be "sheep" and to hear the voice of the Good Shepherd. It might be more challenging than you think....
A somewhat un-sophisticated recording (no equalizing or balancing) of The Jubilee Choir's Concert for Canada, Saturday, April 29, 2017. The spoken words did not make the edit (they were too quiet) and the Newfoundland incursion was also unable to be picked up... but most of the music is here.
Rev. Seli engages with the Easter story of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35)- and wonders what kind of history is it that Luke has written and why has he told it this way.
Rev. Seli engages with John's Gospel and the stories of Jesus' appearance to the Disciples and of "Doubting Thomas"
(John 20:19-29) and wonders what it is that John really wants us to know.
Rev. Seli engages with the Easter text of John (20:1-18) and wonders about a character in the little drama who is never named, but might be pretty important to our understanding of Easter and truth about Resurrection.
