Paddle Against Poverty

Sparrow is paddling against poverty: Support him!


The Historical Jesus

Christmas is a great time for the gospel to hit the mainstream media. As I have perused the papers over the past week it has been encouraging to see Peter Jensen speak with clarity about the Lord Jesus when most of the others waffle on about peace, love and hope without ever really understanding what it is all about. Here is a short article he wrote for the ABC called a A Fun Year for Atheists. and makes some bold but true statements about the historicity of Jesus and the futility of the atheists quest to discredit Jesus without demonstrating that Jesus was not a real person. Here is a snippet:
The atheists have had a fun year, with five or six high-profile books attacking religion indiscriminately. We used to be told that all religions are equal because they all lead you to God. We are now hearing that no religions will lead you anywhere - least of all to God. Either way, of course, we are saved the trouble of discriminating between one religion and another....

...Certainly, Christianity could be discredited by a discovery that its basic historical claims are untrue. I am not a Christian because it feels good, or because it suits my personality or my life-style. I am a Christian because I have been persuaded that the Christian gospel is the truth.
Pray for Peter as he continues to speak to truth to the world through the media.

Day off..

I love having a day off. We went to Erina Fair on the way home from Sydney today. It was pretty crazy. People go mad at sale time. Lucky we had some time to destress at Campos at Terrigal. Why the coast? We thought we better familiarise oursleves with the region since my sister-inlaw will be living there next year when she gets married. Plus I had a $100 gift voucher to spend at HMV and there's no HMV in Newcastle.

A New Location for Church

Hunter Bible Church 5pm is moving to the Junction Primary School. Officially we move on the 27th January but we are having Cafe Church there on the 20th January. Later on in the year we plan to start a morning congregation at the Junction. Richard Sweatman will pastor that congregation.

So Hunter Bible Church will consist of:

1. Unichurch
2. 10am Lambton
3. 10am The Junction
4. 5pm The Junction

Pray that the move goes well and that we reach more people for Christ as we move.
There will be a new website soon... stay tuned!
