Message from the Bishop

Billy and Freda Farr sent me a book called “MORE THAN CONQUERORS”, which I have found so challenging. Listen to an extract from this book on C.T. Studd. “What a risk-taker: ignoring what everyone told him because he knew the Lord was calling; suffering from chronic asthma and in his fifties, yet walking 700 miles through the Zairian jungle for two years surveying the needs; lasting eighteen altogether and seeing numerous tribes reached with the gospel; going without any financial security, because no society would back him; trusting the Lord to provide for every need; praying and waiting on the Lord from 3:30am each morning: translating the New Testament into the local dialect whilst on his deathbed working eighteen hours a day; seeing an indigenous mission movement commence. So many setbacks, hardships, trials and rejections. Wow! I cannot relate to the man - he is far too hardcore for me - and yet I want to relate to him. I want to do absolutely everything for the Lord, because he is worth everything and yet of course I want to hold on to common sense. But, the Lord does not work on the basis of common sense!” Your friend and servant,

Book of the Month “Boundaries” is the word to describe something that is obvious.... for those who are good at it! Knowing who we are, as God's creatures in the world; where our responsibilities begin and end and how we can love others responsibly is something that can be paralysing. One symptom of having under developed God like boundaries is the perpetual feeling that one's life is out of control.... “As I read this book, I kept fighting back the gnawing feeling that the whole trajectory of my life would have been different and better had I read this twenty years ago.” - Bill Hybels
