« Dag Hammarskjold - and the importance of saying yes! | Main | Seek the Lord while He may be found - Prayer of Bernard of Clairvaux »

August 14, 2011



Jim, I visit your blog occasionally and catch up on your thoughts. I found this reflection on using the bible very helpful. I was struck by the phrase "authority as artefact" as the way we often regard the bible in our church. The quote from Andrew Murray reminds that we should always expect an effect from a sermon. Many sermons seem to make the transforming, dynamic Truth seem so dead, formulaic, predictable and irrelevant.
What can be done about this?
