I can’t tell you how many times I have said that very phrase to someone. テつIt has struck me over and over that God has good things for us at the right time. テつThis is true in the story that we would call “the prodigal son” from Luke 15. テつIn this story we see that [...]

In some ways I hesitate to write about something of which the vast majority in the world have never heard and about which the vast majority do not really care. But I am going to do it anyway. Since coming to England my different responsibilities and schedule has allowed me to go back and study in greater detail some areas in which I have reached conclusions, but still had questions. One of those areas is Calvinism. I have stressed in several recent conversations several things that I would like to reiterate here: There are Calvinists with whom I have close friendships and with whom I have no axe to grind. I am not trying to convince them to change nor do I think them lesser Christians in any way whatsoever. There are types of Calvinists which I would find it harder to deal with, but for me it is not a matter of personal separation. I am not looking for a fight or seeking out trouble, it just seems Calvinism is being offered every where I turn and it feels like I am being attacked rather than the other way round. So in essence, some Calvinists are gunning for me, not the other way round. So there we have it, my basis for not wanting any individual to feel targeted, nor for any friendships to feel threatened. :) What I am thinking about at present is prayer. A fair question is why do Calvinists pray. After all, nothing we do makes any difference, everything is sovereignly ordained. Now, I know the answer given is that the prayer is foreordained just as the answer is foreordained. But does that not make the answer dependent on us praying? If the prayer is foreordained then do we not come back to the point that others have raised that we are simply machines. Surely this answer leads us to believe in Calvinism as being a kind of fatalism. Now, to be fair, the question can be reversed. If those who do not believe in Calvinism do not believe that God over rules the will of individuals, then why do we pray? What exactly do we think can be achieved? Part of my answer will be this, there is a junction at which free will encounters sovereignty that I do not believe we can currently understand. I used to be afraid of this because some Calvinists give the impression they have all the answers, but as a good friend of mine from Georgia, USA has said, It just ain't so. The rest of my answer stems from an event in the life of Amos. You can read the text in Amos 7:1-10. To keep these articles concise I will post the remainder of this topic in later posts. Be sure to come back tomorrow to continue this line of thought.
Todayテ「竄ャ邃「s Reading: Acts 9:36-42 How do you want people to remember you? Everybody has attempted to answer that question for him or herself at least one time or another. The popularity of this thought is due to our innate desire to make an impact. We were designed by God with the desire to make an impact on [...]

Since moving to Sunderland my blog habits have seriously been affected. I guess with such a massive change in routine, new responsibilities, old ones passed away, it has been difficult. This week has been eventful. On Tuesday I took part in my first funeral service. Of course I have been at funerals before, but this one I actually preached. In each message, as preachers, we hope to directly effect the hearers. At a funeral you want to convey the peace of God along with other things, and it is hard when you know the words are so easy to say but the action is much harder. The Lord gave grace, though, and I believe the Scriptures were a comfort to those who attended. Yesterday I started feeling ill and by the evening I could tell I was coming down with another stomach bug. It seems we, as a family, have constantly been struggling with some illness or another since we arrived here. Anyway, it made for a rough night, but I am beginning to feel better. I decided to sit down and watch some Saturday morning TV earlier and the only types of programs I could find were food programs! Oh well. Carrie is well, but tired. We eagerly await the arrival of our baby. I think Tuesday is the most convinent time for the baby to arrive this week, Carrie says the baby will come when he/she is ready. Tomorrow the labour begins in earnest to evangelise the comminities around the two mission halls. It is the first Sunday with the service time change at Hallgarth. I believe being at both halls every Sunday will bring numerous benefits. I have 2,500 leaflets for both areas which I hope to have distributed in the coming 4 or 5 weeks. The primary effort for growth this year, I believe, may well be through reconnecting with people who used to attend but have for a variety of reasons fallen away. Please pray for us tomorrow as it is a major focus on stirring up the people and, by God's grace, generating the zeal and passion to continue and increase our labours.
Doctors in a coastal town in northwestern Peru have rescued the innards of a 38-year-old man by removing 17 metal objects -- among them nails, a watch clasp and a knife -- that he ate. Luis Zarate was taken to the regional hospital of Trujillo earlier this week by his family after complaining of sharp stomach pains. Doctors took X-rays of his chest that showed his insides littered with screws. "There were 17 strange objects found at the level of his stomach and colon," said Dr. Julio Acevedo, one of the surgeons who operated on Zarate. The black-and-white scans showed Zarate's skeleton interlaced with things like bolts, barbed-wire and pens.
