After writing about my hopes of going to Australia Transported to Australia – Article in Evangelicals Now   I was sent this link about Mark Driscoll speaking to the Australians in Sydney on the subject of evangelism in 2008.  It is a fascinating document because I think it is a great lesson in how NOT to speak prophetically into a situation you do not know.  As it … Continue reading Deconstructing Driscoll – Lessons for American, Australian and UK Church Cultures.

Does Scotland Need Another Billy Graham?

  This is the editorial from the June Record.  You can purchase a digital copy here – for the ridiculous price of £1.50 (or equivalent).  Watching the BBC documentary ‘Six Weeks to Save the World’, about Billy Graham, was utterly fascinating. The 1950s was a different era and a very different Scotland. The majority of people were associated with the church, and holding a six-week … Continue reading Does Scotland Need Another Billy Graham?
