The advertising in The Weekend Sun was very very good and I am extremely pleased with all the calls I have had since placing the ads. I will continue to advertise with such a great response.

The Classified Section works like a directory. If you have a regular appearance in the Classified Section, people know where to look for your services when they need them. The Weekend Sun has a very popular Classified Section that is constantly building, and becoming a vital advertising tool. Another benefit to advertising in the Classifieds, is that we can always find something that will cater to suit your advertising needs and budget.

We can also fit Classified Advertisements in right up until the very last minute of going to print, which means if you have something urgent, you can usually count on the Classified Section to get it into the paper. Colour advertising is also very affordable in the Classified Section. It costs just $25 +gst extra to add colour to your advert – a fantastic investment to increase the profile of your advert.

The Slow Bible Movement Part three of three We’ve been looking at the concept of ‘Slow Bible’ over the last few weeks. Firstly, rather than attempting to read through the Bible in a year, tackle two to four books of the Bible and read them in conversation with some friends. Secondly, invite an expert into the conversation. The expert won’t actually be there in the room or cafe, but you can invite someone like N.T. Wright into the conversation by taking on

sunday at 10 10am am thursday at 7pm 146 devonport Rd

one of his For Everyone commentaries. The goal is better comprehension and application to life. Another good series is the NIV Application Commentary, like Wright’s For Everyone series, the biblical text is offered and then followed up with explanation and potential application to life. This of course involves a little more reading, hence ‘slow Bible’ rather than Biblein-a-year but will lead to great discussions with your friends. Thirdly, sometimes it’s helpful to step back and

take a ‘bird’s eye view’ of things. This can be helpful when it comes to the Bible. The Drama of Scripture by C.G. Bartholomew and M.W. Goheen is a fantastic introduction to the big story of the Bible. It breaks the big story of the bible into six acts with an interlude between acts 3 and 4 and will really help you to understand what the Biblical narrative is all about. Scot McKnight also has a book called The King Jesus Gospel. This book offers a bird’s eye view of the life of Jesus and the significance of Jesus for humanity. A must read. Fourthly and finally, Christians believe that the Bible is a unique revelation of God to humankind. It’s a book like no other and is understood to be inspired by God (the various authors wrote in their own cultural context and language but they wrote under the inspiration of God); infallible (the Bible is not liable to deceive - when understood and interpreted correctly is trustworthy); and authoritative (the teaching, instruction and big story of the Bible is intended to inform and shape how we live our lives). We believe that even as the authors were inspired by God to write, God can inspire the readers as they read. This doesn’t mean the Bible says whatever we want it to say, but rather, when we engage in due diligence as readers it is amazing how God will speak into our hearts and lives today. Make 2013 the year when you engage in some ‘slow’ Bible reading and be inspired as God speaks into your world. Joseph McAuley, Lead Pastor, St Luke’s Church
