Saturday Snippets (July 10)

As well as reading a lot of books, I also read a ton of articles every week. Here are some of the articles that I’ve read recently and have found interesting, helpful, challenging and encouraging. I hope that they will be the same for you, my dear readers…

Is It The Fault Of Evangelism?

I recently watched a Speak Life discussion between Glen Scrivener and Paul Feesey, on a subject that I’ve been following for weeks, where they discuss the question “Could the recent issues in the church have been avoided if we placed more emphasis on building the church rather than evangelism?” The video is an hour long,Continue reading “Is It The Fault Of Evangelism?”

Kid’s Corner

If we want the children in our churches to grow up to be strong believers, then we need to teach them. We need to teach them the truth. They will be confronted with lies as they grow up. Their faith will be challenged. They must be prepared for that battleground. The training of kids doesn’tContinue reading “Kid’s Corner”

Easter: The Greatest News

Death, it is not a topic that many people in our world like to discuss. We don’t talk about death around the dinner table much, it’s probably more of a conversation killer than a conversation starter. But if this is the case, why exactly do we as Christians talk about and actually celebrate the deathContinue reading “Easter: The Greatest News”

The Certainty of The New Year…

To say that 2020 was a bit of a surprise is probably one of the biggest understatements in the world. Nobody expected to spend the majority of the year at home. Like many people, you maybe began the year with hopes and dreams, laughing and hugging loved ones whilst watching fireworks and sipping some bubbly.Continue reading “The Certainty of The New Year…”

Missionary – Theologian

I was quite excited to receive a copy of this book to review. I have lived on the mission field, my parents are missionaries in Romania, so I naturally have an interest in the topic of missions. I’ve also thought for a very long time that the people we send on global missions should beContinue reading “Missionary – Theologian”

Transfer growth ≠ growth

Last week I wrote an article about how transfer growth isn’t something that should be celebrated as much as it is. It’s fine, but it’s no indication of spiritual growth or sadly of people becoming Christians. You can read the article here. Naturally there was some discussion afterwards, publicly and privately which has lead meContinue reading “Transfer growth ≠ growth”
