Wesley Impact! TV: The Heart of Scripture

20 September 2020 Wesley Impact with Stu Cameron

On this week’s episode of Wesley Impact! TV, Rev Keith Garner reflects on the concept of hope – its importance in the Christian worldview, and why Francis Bacon once described is a ‘a good breakfast, but a poor supper’!

Plus, Rev Garner is joined by the engaging Australian theologian Rikk Watts. Rikk shares how positions as a drummer and then an aeronautical engineer led him to a career in theology. He also explains that at the centre of all theology is knowing the person Jesus, and reminds us all how wonderful it is to focus back on Jesus.

Finally, Craig Gower brings us a version of the heartwarming song ‘Coming Home’ – if you know the words, feel free to sing along.

Interview: Rikk Watts

Rikk Watts began his career in aeronautical engineering at IBM. According to him, it was only a couple of steps away from entering the world of theology – and he hasn’t taken a backwards step.

Today on Wesley Impact! TV, Rev Keith Garner hears Rikk’s story: his influences, and what he considers lying at the heart of all theological study: knowing the person of Jesus. For Rikk, the Christian worldview has powerfully influenced almost every modern culture, as he shares from his experiences teaching overseas.

Rikk explains to Rev Garner the excitement he finds in returning to the fundamentals of theology – at its heart, simple yet wondrous.

Guest performance: Craig Gower – Coming Home

Today’s song reminds us of the home we all share as believers in Christ. Today on the show, hear Craig Gower perform the song ‘Coming Home’, recorded live in the Wesley Impact! studios.

Keith's message: Starting with Hope

Today on Wesley Impact! TV, Rev Keith Garner delves deep into the concept of hope – one which runs through the entire Bible and is central to a Christian approach to life.

Rev Garner also helps us to understand the importance of hope through the lens of two famous writers: Francis Bacon and Fyodor Dostoevsky. As one of these authors wrote, “Hope is a good breakfast, but a poor supper.”
