We are just back from Sydney – tired but happy…..it was a great sabbatical…not so much a rest but rather a renewal – anyway a change is as good as a rest!…..
One of the highlights was on Wednesday 30th of May when we visited Menai Anglican to talk about Proclaiming Christ in a Post-Christian Culture. This was one of those meetings that you know as soon as they begin are a bit special – what I call Holy Spirit meetings. They were expecting about 150 and over 350 turned out…from several different churches…we had a great night of praise, talk and Q and A. What is different about this one is that Annabel was interviewed with me at the beginning….if you don’t have time to listen to the talk I would suggest you listen to the first part which is the interview with Annabel….and I thought the Q and A was better than the main talk! Mainly because there was a wee bit of an edge…not everyone was on board with what I was saying! Which made it all the more interesting! I loved it….
You can get the interview, the talk and the Q and A here at the Menai website –
There was a lot of feedback from this evening. Probably my favourite comment was “I came expecting answers, and I left with even more questions. ” (this was said as a complement, not a complaint!)…It was great to see people thinking for themselves….It was also good to see a church which is progressing and growing as they proclaim Christ in ‘the Shire’ (they are based in a unique area of South Sydney called Sutherland – but better known as ‘The Shire”. How lovely that as someone who has ministered in the real Sutherland, I got to do so in the Australian version!. May the Lord bless…
