"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16


Jesus loves you and wants to offer you eternal life in his new creation. Would you like a personal relationship with him?


Introverted?

Whilst it is true that I may be considered shy and bookish by some, the second definition below is perhaps a broader definition of my personality and that of Introverts as a whole. I would add also that I don't hate people as that is a big NO for preachers, but by no choice of my own can be a bit socially awkward as a person.

Preacher?

Although it has not been historically verified many attribute this saying to Saint Francis: "Preach use words if you have to."
I have always taken this to mean we live the gospel as well as tell people about it. After all Saint Francis was a very active preacher, proclaiming vocally the word of God and showed by his life the one he followed.
A more historically verified saying of the saint is this beauty: “It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.”

As a preacher I seek by God's strength to preach with both word and action. With that in mind I am happy to consider offers of preaching engagements.

Thoughts?


"A person sitting at his desk and staring out of the window would never be assumed to be working. No! Thinking is not equated with work. Yet, had Newton under his tree or Archimedes in his bathtub bought into that prejudice, some natural laws would still be up in the air or buried under an immovable rock. Pascal’s Pensées, a work that has inspired millions, would have never been penned.

 

The Bible places supreme value in the thought life. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he,” Solomon wrote (Proverbs 23:7). Jesus asserted that sin’s gravity lay in the idea itself, not just the act. The apostle Paul admonished the church at Philippi to have the mind of Christ, and to the same people he wrote, “Whatever is true…whatever is pure…if there be any virtue…think on these things” (Philippians 4:8)....

 

....After all, it is not that I think, therefore, I am; but rather, the great I Am has asked us to think, and therefore, we must. And we must serve Him with all our minds..."

The Blessings and Curses of being a Ministry Introvert

"When people think of an introvert, they tend to picture someone who keeps to himself, doesn’t care for company very much, and perhaps lacks confidence. I doubt that many people imagine someone who is wise (remember, it’s the fool in Proverbs who does all the talking), reflective, studious, observant, or a thinker. But this is often what introverts are..."

"...Sermon prep is a creative process that requires study, reflection, and lots of alone time – things introverts love. Our wiring is an advantage when it comes to spending the time it takes to get ready to preach...."

"... Fortunately, Jesus promises us, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness” (2 Cor. 12:9). So whatever our personality, let us glorify God, giving him credit for our strengths, and relying on his grace to make up for our weaknesses..."
