For those of you who have not heard of Rob Bell, he is probably the best speaker I have ever heard. The way he brings meaning and life to scriptural principles is awesome. In my view, one of the biggest sins a preacher can commit is to bore their audience. How can the great stories found in the Bible be boring? Only if we are slack.
Listen to some of Rob Bell http://www.mhbcmi.org/listen/index.php or go to his ‘nooma’ site www.nooma.com for some excellent 9-11 minute presentation videos which are just superb, well done, sermon vignettes.
Well I am online at last. After reading some other blogs online, such as http://www.backyardmissionary.com/ and www.philbaker.net I have decided that maybe there is a spot for my musings as well.
If you are visiting for the first time, post me a comment.
Cervantes, one of my favourite spots to get away. Pulling in some Herring
Entitled “Vegetable Soup”.
After unsuccesfully putting in a offer on a house nearer the Church, and being really dissapointed by the buyers taking it off the market, I felt that I should speak about how even when we dont know what is going on, God does. Sometimes life feels like a vegetable soup, all mixed up and the details are hard to distinguish.
If you want to know how it ends, see you at Church on Sunday 🙂
