Australian idols at Hillsong church
Barry and Angie, two of the finalists in the Australian idol show sang at Hillsong church tonight. Barry was one of the backing vocals. Brian Houston spotted Angie from the audience and invited her to come up and lead the worship, but Angie didn't seem to know the song... anyway she did sing, just with her own version. Among the final 12, Angie was actually my first choice, but sadly she was the first to leave. But apparently she's gonna sing at Hillsong now.That's pretty cool,hey.
Ok, enough of the idols. You're probably sick of the idol posts here by now. Ok back to the Hillsong teachings.
So I went to three services this weekend. (Am I good or not?!)
Saturday night phil Dooley's talk was about counter cultural living. We're called to live life different from the norm. Counter culture means we're gonna shock some people and mess up how people think.
Sunday morning Brian Houston continued with his series about the leaven and the lump. He mainly addressed three things about the leaven: hypocrasy, compromise and religion. These are the things that stop people from being who God intends them to be.
Sunday night Brian Zahand(got to check the spelling later) spoke about faith. He said that faith is a radical, alternative lifestyle. Hebrew 11 listed a number of people of faith, each with their unique manifestation. He particularly talked about Sampson: that his strength is a secret. He shared his own testimony of faith. Faith is a journey from impossible to possible, it's to hold on to what God has revealed in one's heart and pursue it until God brings it to pass.
It seems that from Friday the message of Hillsong women to all the three teachings of the weekend, to the letter coach Helen Chen sent me, it's all around faith, dream and trusting God beyond circumstances, obstacles and excuses. It's obvious that God is really trying to get through something to me. Oh Lord, help!
