Sermon: The Spirit of Reconciliation & Obedience

Preached by Rev. Jacob Crane on Sunday, May 19th, 2019

A part of the series.

What’s the problem with humanity?

As we continue our series on the Holy Spirit, we learn that the despite the constant failures of God’s people to live pleasing lives to God, fulfilling their purpose to be a blessing to other nations, God remains faithful.

His grace and patience aren’t limitless, and when His Holy name is profaned, God acts and judges His people. He acts precisely because of His Holy Name, both in judging Israel and in promising to redeem them. He promised to make Israel a great nation. So He redeems them, promising to place within us, a new heart, and His Spirit.

The problem with humanity, is the human heart.

12th-century Magister Pérotin’s polyphony vs. the metal strings of The Omnific

Pérotin Beata viscera
The Omnific Kismet
The Omnific Objets de Vertu
Léonin Viderunt omnes
The Omnific That’s all she wrote
Pérotin Viderunt omnes

Our singers join forces with the rising bass guitar duo, Matthew Fackrell & Toby Peterson-Stewart from Melbourne metal band The Omnific for a resonant mix of plainchant, dynamic basslines, and 12th-century organum.




Matthew Fackrell | Toby Peterson-Stewart | Susannah Lawergren | Ethan Taylor | Koen van Stade | Mark Donnelly | Antony Pitts

A collaboration across genres with a uniting interest in the deep resonances of vocal cords, struck strings, and powerful harmonies. A cluster of rising stars from Melbourne, The Omnific has already made a name for their unique rhythmic interplay and wordless metallic fantasias. The Omnific’s two five-string bass guitarists’ classic duo Kismet and other works are interleaved with multi-voice chanting and improvisation from the male voices of The Song Company in music from Magister Pérotin’s masterpiece Viderunt omnes and its late 12th-century inspirations, echoed by a high soprano in his most haunting of songs, Beata viscera.

He later moved to Geneva, Switzerland where he was a student of Lionel Rogg. Following his return to Britain he studied privately for two years with Dame Gillian Weir.

He has appeared at a number of the world’s most prestigious venues including the Royal Festival Hall, London; King’s College, Cambridge; Suntory Hall, Tokyo; Hong Kong Cultural Center; The Moscow Conservatoire; the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Paris; the National Conventions of the NZAO and the American Guild of Organists; Yale, Duke and Stanford Universities, plus leading halls and cathedrals in Taiwan, South America, Iceland, Finland, Australia, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa and

Sermon: Belief and Divine Revelation

Download sermon: here

Preached by Rev. Jacob Crane on Sunday, April 28th, 2019

How is it, that those who knew Him best, were unable to recognise Jesus when He was raised from the dead? Why weren’t they able to see Him?

It isn’t until Jesus chooses to reveal Himself, to Mary, to the disciples, and to Thomas, that they can see Him and respond.

And like the historical figures of John 20, like Mary, we can seek the Risen Lord, or like the disciples, we can wait confidently, even when fear and doubt surround us.

Listen to an exposition on Belief and Divine Revelation from John 20.19-31, with a brief summary and inclusion of the opening story of Mary from verses one to 18.
