A Ministry Update!

10 Nov

I can’t believe the Lord lets me do ministry — at my advanced age! (I’m only 71, so I’m half-kidding!).

Keeping up with my wife-of-fifty-years-Linda and our seven grandchildren seems enough for me to do, but the Lord has other plans! Here’s what I’ve been doing the last few months:

1. I have an ongoing online Bible study with my good friend Frank. We’ve gone through most of the epistles of the New Testament and are now working our way through the Psalms. I describe our online Bible reading covenant here. You might want to try this with a friend or relative.

2. I have another online Bible reading covenant with four brothers in Christ (one in Scotland; the other three here in the States). We’re working our way through the gospel of John.

So each morning I read both the Psalm for the week with my friend Frank and the chapter in John’s gospel with my four brothers.

3. I’ve been editing manuscripts for Christian Focus Publishers in Scotland for a couple of years now and am presently finishing up two books for them. One is on the idea of Be Killing Sin . . . or Sin Will Be Killing You! A terrific book on growing in Christ!

4. And the Lord keeps giving me opportunities to teach doctrine and courses in theology. I have three going on right now:

a. I’m teaching my little book Unlike Jesus: Let’s Stop Unfriending the World to a small class at our church, Sandhills Community Church.

b. I’m also teaching that book to a group of pastors in Ethiopia (when the internet there works!). I actually send them a few short videos and then hope (and pray) that we can discuss the material via Zoom!

c. I’m also teaching my book DocTALK to a group of believers in the States. We meet every other Sunday night for an hour.

d. I’ve also been doing an eight-week series on Romans 12 I’m calling “24 Critical Imperatives for the Believer.” This is for Fifth Avenue Chapel in Belmar, New Jersey, and we have had some great discussions about Paul’s commandments in Romans 12.

5. There’s a chance Linda and I may be able to go over to Israel on a tour in February. I’ve had the chance to visit Palestine, but Linda hasn’t been to that part of the world.

That’s it! And keeping up with our seven grandchildren!

May the Lord bless you and your ministry!

    that is a lot! I’m praying for you, i can almost relate since I’m not that much younger.. Is that material of the Romans 12 study available somehow? It sounds very interesting and our church will get there soon so it would be valuable to have.

      Thank you for your comment, Peter. I think that Fifth Avenue Chapel in Belmar recorded the messages, but I can check. Blessings on you, my brother!
