Bible Story Telling

30 06 2011

When Sam Chan was up for the SMBC Mission week we had plenty of discussions about a method of Bible study he referrred to as ‘Bible story telling.’  He led one of our Growth Groups in a study on Isaiah 55 and people raved about it. One person said to me it was the first time she understood something from Isaiah. I tried not to take that personally considering they had heard me preach a number of sermons on Isaiah. Anyway I am exploring this method to try it with a Growth Group I am starting next month.

Here’s a link to a talk by John Gill. Sam learnt this method from him.

The reality of the Christian life is that it is a winding and narrow path. This is something I am slowly discovering and so discovering Jesus is for me at every step.

This is an excellant book on ministry. A book that wonderfully captures the heart of simple Biblical Gospel ministry. It is so refreshing to read such a book.





Eternal source of light

One of my favourite pieces of music.

“Eternal source of light divine,

With double warmth Thy beams display,

And with distinguished glory shine,

To add a lustre to this day.”

Handel





Jesus you are worthy…
