Teaching in Burma

It has been my privilege to lecture at a couple of Bible Colleges in Rangoon, Burma, during the last four years. I love being involved at a theological and pastoral level in preparing young aspiring leaders for ministry in and from the local church.

This time I’ll be teaching on the Pastoral Epistles. These short letters by the apostle Paul teach into a Christian scene in the first century (not unlike our own), that is marked by doctrinal error and moral compromise. The only antidote is the Gospel; correctly understood, and skilfully applied, within the local church context specifically, and all of life generally.

Particularly relevant for today, me thinks!

Back in a couple of weeks.

UPDATE:

Home again after a wonderful time in Burma. In eleven days I delivered about 30 hours of bible teaching and preaching. The students and church members have an insatiable appetite for God’s word. “Exhausted, yet perusing!”

  1. Lord,
    In this ministry World-wide
    Help me beware of pride.
    May I be culturally sensitive
    But of truth: representative.

    Help me to be faithful
    Modest and fruitful
    As a herald and teacher
    A servant and minister.
