Weekly-ish sermon recordings from the Whitehouse Church in Canberra. If you’re a fan of Greg Boyd and Brian Zahnd among others, you’ll definitely notice the influence (and occasionally shameless borrowing) of their great ideas. The Whitehouse Church is mostly Neo-Anabaptist~ish, post-evangelical leaning in worldview. We see Jesus as the full expression of what God is like and try to build community around his teachings. If you have any questions or comments check out our website and send us ...

We want to impact this generation of Anabaptist people through training them to think properly—to really engage with the questions that our communities face today. Thinking is not just using bigger words or reading thicker books. It is learning the mind of Christ—learning to love God and others more.

Spanish Description: Merienda es otro nombre para una cena o té ligero en la noche, y generalmente es informal y, a menudo, una oportunidad para reunirse con amigos. En este mismo sentido, en "Merienda Menonita," Jonathan Minchala y Peter Wigginton compartirán historias y conversarán con invitados sobre cómo vivir el llamado cristiano en América Latina. Juntos exploran cómo seguir a Cristo en la vida cotidiana, y qué puede ofrecer el anabautismo a la iglesia latinoamericana de hoy. "Merienda ...
 
What, if anything, can we learn from the Amish? Professor Kraybill spent decades researching and writing about this distinctive community. In a series of episodes he argues that our hyper-tech society has much to learn from the horse-and-buggy driving Amish. In each episode, Kraybill explains how an old-fashion practice related to community, technology, apprenticeship, and forgiveness—turns relevant once again in the twenty first century. An Amish man joins the conversation in each session. ...
 
Shalom Sistas is a podcast hosted by Osheta Moore, a wifey, writer, entrepreneur, and mom who loves to talk Shalom with her favorite women, her Shalom Sistas. While Shalom is often thought of as another word for peace, it’s actually a deep and wide concept of the world as it should be- whole, flourishing, and vibrant. Being a Shalom Sistah is as simple as seeing a need in the world and asking "how can I help?" Every episode Osheta will introduce a Shalom Sista who asked that question to shar ...

Does communion involve the literal body of Jesus? Does baptism save us? Dean Taylor addresses listener comments regarding baptism and the Lord’s supper. These questions were responses to Dean’s episode “The Essence of Anabaptism” in which he emphasized believing scripture “without a complicated interpretation.” Some viewers argued that doesn’t fit …
 
On August 14, Jeff McLain looked at the story in Numbers 13 as we found that perhaps the desert moment is not a place of pain and problem, but a time in which God's presence and promise is closer than we realize. However, perhaps the promised land and opportunities only come when we posture ourselves correctly while we are in the desert. In Numbers…
 
It has been said that we become what we worship. If that is true, and I believe it to be so, then we would do well to try to form and shape our understanding of God the best we can by what he reveals to us in Scripture. In the stead of vain speculation and wish-fulfillment, we can be sure of that which God has spoken about himself, and trust in it …
 
Jim Laverty, lead pastor at Mountville Mennonite Church, shares with us from Acts 15 in his message, "What is so Surprising About Grace?" This is part of our August series, Spur On Another On, in which we are hearing from other leaders in our Landisville Manor District. Support the showBy Jim Laverty
 
The question of canon is, “how do we know which writings speak for God.” This question assumes that God has spoken, and that He has done so through a written word. How are Christians nearly 2000 years removed from the writing of the New Testament to know that we have everything God intended us to have and nothing more? Today we will look at the pri…
 
On August 7, Jeff McLain explored James 5:7-9 and how we might grow our capacity for patience in the moments that we suffer through a pressure, pain, or problem in our life that feels unresolved. Patience doesn't come easy for many of us. It wasn't any different for the early church as they wrestled to remain faithful in some fearful and challengin…
 
Cultures generally have heroes. They are typically mythological, made up to embody the very virtues that the culture thinks are most important and vital. They help to shape the purpose and the nature of that culture. America has its own heroes, some more abstract, some more cinematic. But the Bible has its own set, different in nearly all its ways …
 
Strength to Strength Sisters welcomed Natasha Sweazy to contrast the worldviews from women in the Bible to the world today. From the cries of women saying, “give me children or I will die” to “give me children and I’ll die”. No matter what stage of life you are in, whether it be women with a lot of small children, a child who has walked away from G…

Suffering and struggle come with the territory of life. You or someone you know is going through it now. You or someone you know will face a difficult season soon. Wherever you are on the suffering spectrum, we have something to learn from the kingdom community forming throughout the book of Acts. Imagine the people of the Jesus movement with us in…
 
“When I read the New Testament, I am struck by what great lengths the early church went to in order to reach the world with the Gospel. Not only were they committed and bold, they were also quite creative in finding ways to interact with people in meaningful ways.” In Cultivating Spiritual Creativity in God’s Kingdom, Reagan Schrock calls us to fac…
 
Strength to Strength welcomed five brothers on an off-Saturday to introduce and discuss ministry opportunities in 2022. Jesus said, Do you not say, “There are still four months and then comes the harvest”? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! John 4:35 NKJV Our goal with these updat…
 
As the apostles wonder whether Jesus has returned from the dead to restore the kingdom of Israel, Jesus instead speaks of power that will come upon them in the form of the Holy Spirit. This was not a dominion over others, but the power of the Spirit of God. What if this is a power that allows us to bypass the offenses of others, that makes it possi…
 
As our board and staff were together recently, we hammered out a vision statement. “Using digital media to encourage allegiance to Jesus’s sacrificial kingdom.” We also discussed operation improvements. Until now we have run this podcast by seasons and currently we are in Season 4. Going forward, we will not be using seasons. We will instead releas…
 
On July 31, Jeff McLain brought our series, Final Instructions, to a close by looking at Colossians 4:6, as we explored Pauls' encouragement and challenge to the the church to have gracious conversations. Throughout this series, Final Instructions, each week, we have explored Paul’s final instructions to the church in Colossae, looking at Paul's in…
 
In 2020 Seattle dollars, Mary pours out $100,000 worth of perfume on Jesus’ feet. Why? And when Judas questions her choice, citing how much further those dollars could have gone if given to the poor, doesn’t he have a point? Yep. But come along for this sermonic ride, exploring the honoring of bodies, and averted public shaming, and loving God with…
 
The church should be a place of healing, not a place that causes trauma. And not just miraculous physical healing, but the kind of healing that comes from deep abiding relationship, from connectedness, intimacy and belonging. The kind of healing that comes from extended times of listening, from tea and from coffee, and from the breaking of bread.…
 
Strength to Strength welcomed Darvin Martin to discuss what Peter meant when he said: “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts…” 1 Peter 3:15a The primary command that God has given us is to love Him with all of our being. But how can we love a God whom we mistrust? From the garden of Eden to our present day, Satan’s scheme has been to deceive peo…
 
Like Paul and Barnabas in Acts 14, we're on mission in a messy middle-ground. Things were looking good in one city then churches were planted in another. But things got weird in the city of Lystra in between. It started off well enough with a powerful healing. But suddenly the two men are met with confusion, suppression, and opposition. Things can …
 
[Note: After this episode, we will be shifting to a biweekly release schedule.] One YouTube commenter wrote: “In the Anabaptist worldview, we value community above almost everything else. We are often even reluctant to discuss controversial Bible passages for fear of disrupting our sense of community. In the academic world, on the other hand, promo…

The doctrine of the canon of Scripture addresses the question of how we can know what is included in the inspired, inerrant, authoritative Scriptures. All Scripture is God-breathed, but how do we know which writings are from God and which have been contrived by man? Certain principles can be used to gauge whether or not a historical writing deserve…
 
Jesus’s example of how to pray helps us see economic justice in a new way, helps us remember who we are to God and to each other, and helps us see that admitting dependance on God can lead to justice for everyone.

We have a bit of a mess on our hands. Our construction has just started, and while it is meant to make our lives easier around here, for the present time it will indeed bring dust, stress, and inconvenience to us. This is what happens when you build in this world. The same is true for God – he is not just giving redemption to his people, he is maki…
 
A listener commented “I love the theology and cannot stand the exclusivity” in reference to John’s episode “The Kingdom of God in Anabaptist Thought.” John affirms the existence of other Kingdom Christians. His comments also clarify what he means by Kingdom theology. We are to be a city set on a hill, which is a light to the world as a community, n…
 
On July 17, Jeff McLain looked at at Colossians 4:5, exploring how Paul encourages the church to make the most of every moment; for it is any moment that the rule and reign of God has the potential to break into the present. Throughout this series, Final Instructions, each week, we have explored Paul’s final instructions to the church in Colossae, …
 
Just how easy is it for a camel to get through the eye of a needle? Pastor Debbie takes us through many translations and interpretations around the familiar quip. Did Jesus really mean what he is reported to have said - either literally or metaphorically? Who was this lesson even for? Maybe there are more questions here than answers. Sermon begins …
 
The book of Exodus seems to many like a book of myth; filled with impossible stories meant to build up in the mind of the reader a reason for the existence of Israel. To some, it is a strictly historical book, depicting the long ago and far away rescue of a people that’s importance for us is obscure and somewhat removed from our everyday life. But …
 
Strength to Strength welcomed Lynn Martin to discuss how we can encourage intellectual sustainability in our thought processes. Are thinkers necessary to Anabaptist culture? Should we care that the most talented young people often leave the Anabaptist community? This talk will address these questions. Lynn suggests ways that our communities can sup…
 
Could it be that our divisive culture discipled us to a point where we can no longer see others we disagree with as those who are bought and sought by the reconciling love of God? If that's true, then we need a new way of seeing. Paul saw it and he wants to share it. In this message we unpack some life-changing answers to some big questions related…
 
“What a time in the U.S. to be asked to talk about conflict resolution,” says Kathleen Klompien-Wedberg as she begins her sermon relating to our Peaceful Practices Curriculum. She notes that the past few weeks have seen the world in a time of war and aggression on multiple fronts. Yet our passage in Matthew 18:10-22 about trying to reconcile, again…
