The Church Peter Would Like To Pastor

This is a very special sermon in the life of Ashburton Baptist Church. It was preached by Rev. John Simpson on Sunday 12th February 1995, Peter Walker's 10th anniversary as pastor of the Church. At the time, Peter was critically ill in hospital following a tragic car accident six weeks earlier.

John's sermon begins with these words:

There are pressing issues which weigh in upon us all;
there are the uncertainties of not knowing what the future holds;
there are difficult questions which do not have easy resolutions.
So this is the context in which we come to reflect upon the Word

What kind of a church is being fashioned by these difficulties?
