I recently had the privilege of speaking at the weekend away for the parish of Preston Plucknett in Yeovil. This was a series of talks that I was really looking forward to giving, and was excited to see what God was going to do with them.
They are all based on the story of Moses and the burning bush in Exodus 3:1-6.
In the first session I spoke about God’s uniqueness and how it transformed the ground into somewhere “holy”.
During the second session I spoke about how holiness isn’t just something we experience, it is also what we are; and the dry and desolate seasons of life that often draw that holiness out.
Finally, in the last session I spoke about how our churches can create “burning bushes” that draw people into encountering God’s uniqueness in super practical and down to earth ways.
In between the last two sessions I also held a short seminar / Q&A time. We had a great conversation in this time about journeying alongside people in dark seasons of life, discipleship and church models, creating accountability in our small groups, and changing the ways we do life together to spur more growth.
If you are interested in spending some time listening to any of those things (It will be worth it!) you can listen here.
