Preaching Abroad

January 20, 2006

OK, I would respond to CJ’s "Conversation Joined" but I can’t figure out how to post a comment.  So this is  going to be its own brief entry.   I am in  England preaching.  I’ve spent the day with Matt Schmucker and others here at Oak Hill Theological College.  Peter Jensen (Archbishop of Syndey) and I spoke in morning sessions to a gathering of students and pastors.  And this afternoon, I met with independent (mainly Baptist)  students.  It’s great to see some of the good work that the Lord is doing here at Oak Hill.  My access to the internet is limited, so my blogging will have to become more frequent and regular  upon my return to the States.

I’ve got a busy week here coming up.  Peter J & I are speaking at meetings across England (London, Cambridge, Birmingham, Leyland) and I’m to be preaching at Duke Street (Richmond), St Helens (London), Eden Baptist (Cambridge) and Spicer Street (Congregational), over this next week.  Pray for me.  I am  always encouraged by the emphasis on expositional preaching that I find here among this strain of English (and Australian!) evangelicals.  If you’re reading and you’re not familiar with Peter Jensen or Philip Jensen, then check out websites (that you can find through Google) with Sydney Anglican Diocese or St. Matthias Media. 

As to CJ’s suggestion that I typed "Great Stuff", in fact I did not.  That was Ryan Townsend in front of CJ’s own  distracted face while Ryan was teaching CJ how to post a blog on  this site!
