Field Notes – 17/10/T
“You don’t ever finish preparing a sermon, you just abandon working any more on it, trusting that what’s heard is better than what’s said.” (Sam Allberry)
“Extraordinary Christian ministry can produce unbecoming arrogance.” (Dick Lucas)
A friend of mine, Barry Cooper, has just launched a podcast with James Cary talking about culture, theology, the arts, the church, books and more. Check out Cooper & Cary Have Words.
“Men’s ministry is sort of a joke.
Church is men’s ministry.
Men learn to follow Christ and provide leadership in the context of a church – going to church, taking their family to church, singing with their children in church, opening a Bible and following along, serving the church.
If you are doing that and growing in Christ, then the church becomes men’s ministry.
Now out of that you might gather a group, some brothers in Christ that you have that help you with your walk, but I think the first and foremost of men’s ministry should be in the church.”
