Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve come across a few bits and pieces of interest, mostly related to COVID-19. Here’s a brief summary and links. Might make this a regular feature going forward…we’ll see!
Ligonier Ministries have made all their teaching series free to stream until at least 30th June.
This is a fantastic resource and there is a large number of excellent series to choose from. I can recommend:
Challies – Read an Encouraging Book Together
Tim Challies has just started a ‘group read’ of the Puritan Thomas Watson’s All Things For Good. Don’t be put off by the fact that Watson was a Puritan – his writing is really accessible and this is quite a short book. It’s can be really helpful to read in a structured way and this book tackles a very relevant topic.
President Nana Akufo-Addo – Ghanaian Day of Prayer
The President of Ghana recently called for a national day of prayer about the COVOD-19 situation and issued the poster below. Whilst I note that there is a similar poster aimed at Muslims and quoting the Quran, I understand from contacts in Ghana that the President is a Christian and it is encouraging to see someone in that position quoting the Bible. In the UK our leaders have not acknowledged a ‘god’ of any description let alone the God of the Bible.
Street Preaching During Lockdown – Stephen Kneale
This Fine is Not a Matter of Free Speech and Doesn’t Commend the Gospel – Stephen Kneale of Building Jerusalem provides what I think is a sensible and thoughtful analysis of the recent arrest of Mike Overd (the well known Taunton street preacher) for breaching COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. You might disagree with his conclusions, but there is food for thought here.
Footsteps Archive: Jesus was in the Boat
A Bible Study on the stilling of the storm. Very relevant to us all today in one way or another.
