Sermons by Pastor Eric

 

Eric H.H. Chang’s preaching ministry spanned several decades, and have spoken powerfully to many in Canada and Asia. It was based mainly in Montreal, Canada, with significant connections to Hong Kong, Liverpool, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Australia, Thailand, India, Nepal, Myanmar, and other places.

We will eventually release hundreds of his sermons in audio format. As a start, this web page now has dozen of sermons under several categories. The remainder will be released in due time, batch by batch. A minority have Chinese translation, but the translation is secondary to the English message.

Most of the sermons were recorded on cassette tapes, and these have been digitized into mp3 format. A typical sermon would be recorded on sides A and B of a cassette tape, resulting in two mp3 files called “A” and “B”. In some cases, there is a third file “C”.

While listening to a message, you may encounter minor issues in the transition from side A to side B: perhaps a missing gap between the two sides, or an imbalance in volume. We believe that these will not detract from the spiritual worth of the sermons.

It is our hope and confidence that in listening to the sermons, you will be inspired by Pastor Eric’s love for God and his insight into the Scriptures, and will press forward to become faithful stewards of God’s life-giving Word.

“Speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ” (Eph.4:15).

 

Note: Most sermons have a date code such as 1983-0327 (= March 27, 1983). The sermon codes (e.g. EXPER001a) are subject to change in a future reclassification. But the three-digit codes such as 174 (divided into 174a and 174b) are permanent, and may be used for unambiguous reference; these codes are not necessarily chronological.

Dawson Hall, the venue for most of the sermons. The people would be seated not in the balcony sections but on chairs set up on the lower level.

The main chapel of St. James United Church, the preaching venue on special occasions. Our church is not part of the United Church of Canada.

St. James United Church also has a basement where we would have our refreshments and church dinners. Here is an undated photo, probably around 1981 or 1982, of Pastor Eric and his wife Helen at a church dinner. The white specks are dust particles that melded with the surface of the photo over the years.
