Wesley Impact! TV: Engaging in the Public Space

Today on Wesley Impact! TV, Rev Keith Garner takes us through the familiar parable of the sower in Matthew 13, and suggests a new title that unpacks deep truths about our society and the Word of God.

On the show today is Simon Smart, Director at the Centre for Public Christianity. Simon shares the work and impact that the Centre has in Australia, giving us insight into modern-day evangelism that speaks to the hearts of people where they are at – whether they are skeptical, believers, or anywhere in between.

Finally, the talented Jhoanna Aguila joins the Wesley Impact Band to perform the inspiring song ‘So Will I’.

Interview: Simon Smart

In modern-day Australia, two thirds of people say that they don’t have a close friend who is a Christian.

It has never been more important for the Gospel to go out to people who are unfamiliar with, or even hold outright hostility towards the Bible. Today on Wesley Impact! TV we’re joined by Simon Smart, director of the Centre for Public Christianity, and who spends his time thinking through this exact challenge.

Simon shows us some examples of the work the Centre is doing, and how Australian Christians can reach their skeptical friends and family by addressing their context, their worldview, and be talking with respect.

Finally, he challenges us to be confident in the good news we have to share, and the positive Christian vision of the world.

Keith's Message: The Parable of the Soils

Known for generations as ‘The Parable of the Sower’, Jesus’ message in Matthew 13 is given a new name on today’s episode of Wesley Impact! TV.

Rev Keith Garner invites us to take a fresh look at the familiar story, and consider what’s underneath, in each of our hearts, that makes the difference between the different types of soil.

Rev Garner also challenges us to be part of the story, engaged in our community and where people are, speaking the languages of the hearts – a call that many of us ought to heed.
