Preaching Matters

Preaching Matters is a monthly series designed to equip, inspire and encourage those who preach or teach God’s word. Each month the folks at St. Helen’s Bishopgate in London sit down for a chat with a preacher and ask them their thoughts. The series will include video interviews with William Taylor, Andrew Sach, Phillip Jensen and David Cook.

The monthly video’s will be released on the first Monday of each month. It will be available from their website  but also though Vimeo and You Tube.

I have included three of the initial releases below as an introduction.

One Comment

  1. This is a significant quote: “Preaching really matters because the way God governs and rules, in fact the way He creates, calls together, sustains, challenges and changes His church is through His word, so the way God works empowered by His Spirit today is through His word and therefore the teaching of God’s word, whether it’s in a small group or one-to-one, or in a kind of sustained monologue preaching form to the gathered congregation, it’s the way God rules and governs His church, it’s absolute essential, that’s why preaching matters.”

    When you pull that quote apart, the statement is that preaching/teaching is how God “rules and governs” His church, and your role is one of listening and obeying God’s teachers. In other words, “do what you’re told”, and there’s little place left for reading and understanding for yourself.
