Like It Is!

"Like It Is!" is a feature that commenced in September 2014. Each file is a brief (3 minutes or less) editorial style comment on life in the 21st. Century from a Christian perspective. They are written and produced by Dr. Bob Bernhardt, Minister of Alberton Church.

Jesus selected an inner circle of disciples to have the benefit of sharing closely in his life and ministry. They were to learn from his teaching but they were also to glean wisdom from observing the whole context of what Jesus said and did. Significant details from those events are recorded in the accounts in the Gospels. In this “Walking With Jesus” sermon series we explored some of those Gospel accounts of Jesus' ministry to gain a clearer understanding of even the more subtle implications of what our Lord said and did. For an introduction to this recent sermon series and to listen to the audio files of the sermons select Walking with Jesus.

Sermon on Church and Community On September 21st., 2014, the Alberton congregation participated in the Christian worship service at the Ancaster Fair.

Mostly Scripture - Mini Audio Meditations

Dr. Bob has created a series of mini mediations which are, in fact, mostly scripture. Listen to scripture as read from the Contemporary English Version. Dr. Bob precedes each passage with a very brief word of introduction and closes it with a one sentence prayer. The passage being read is also provided in print. This small collection of readings will continue to be augmented with additional selections. To access a list of this material simply select Mostly Scripture.
