So what about separation?

So I've spent the week at Oxygen 2014 sitting under, and publicly engaging, the preaching of men like Don Carson, Francis Chan, John Lennox, Paul Tripp, and Bryan Chapell. But what about separation? What about contending for the faith? Doesn't the fact that some of these men hold to very

Australia’s premiere evangelical event?

KCC's Oxygen is becoming, it seems to me, Australia's premiere evangelical event. This week 1,500+ Christian leaders have gathered in Sydney to rally around the gospel of Jesus Christ. The dominant majority of the preaching and teaching has been contentful, theologically sound, gospel-saturated, and passionately felt. If you're looking for

Some thoughts on Oxygen so far

Here are some observations from my time here at Oxygen 2014 so far. Concerns First, there is a danger that, in trying to bring people together from a broad spectrum of Christian circles, we can so dilute the content of our combined fellowship as to make it tepid. For instance,

#onelove2014 – Gems From the Last Session

I wanted to share one more post about my experience at KCC's One Love Women's Conference last Saturday.  Though all 3 sessions were amazing, Bryan Chapell's touched me the most.  His topic was "Just Mary:  An Expression of Christ's Love for the Vulnerable" from Colossians 3. He started out addressing

#onelove2014 – Wrap-up

All good things must end . . . but what a powerful end! Bryan Chapell spoke on Christ's love for the vulnerable and it was so good that I will post a separate blog on the highlights. Again, I left in tears over how incredible God is! But I wanted

#onelove2014 – “Do You Love Me?”

Nancy Guthrie just spoke at One Love women's convention here today, helping us understand HOW to repond to God's amazing love. From John 21 where Jesus asked Peter 3 times "Do You Love Me?", we see Jesus graciously offering forgiveness for the 3 times Peter denied Him. Words can't be

What Does God’s Love Look Like?

Isn't God so awesome how He does that . . . when what someone presents from His Word is just meant personally for each lady in the convention centre today?! Personally for all of them, even though they are each in a different stage of life with different needs! That's

Apologies for the late post and rushed thoughts... On Sunday, a friend and I went to visit Hillsong church in Norwest. I'm no advocate for Hillsong but there were some interesting things I learned while observing in their evening service that I feel that we could glean from. One thing
