Chronicles Teaching

April 12, 2011

During REALITY’s Thursday night gathering we have been working through the Old Testament in a series we’re calling “The Emmaus Way”. Each week we study one book of the Hebrew Bible, ultimately asking, “Where is Jesus in this book?”. To date Paul had taught Genesis through Kings. Last week I had the opportunity to teach through Chronicles. It has been a while since I taught last in this type of setting (August), but I had a great time! (You’re welcome to listen to the audio here)

As is always the case when preparing for teaching, there is always more material to share than time to share it. So, be on the look out for a series of posts over at for more thoughts from Chronicles.

Hope you enjoy the message and posts to come!


Lights Coming On

May 15, 2009

You know I almost became a physics teacher?  Maybe it was analyzing problems or maybe it was just the inspirational effect of a good teacher on his students, but going out of high school, I thought I was studying to become a physics teacher, and I really thought I would enjoy it too. Obviously things did not turn out as I’d thought.  The Lord called, and now here we are living in Holland and loving the people God brings in our path.

Some times I think about those post-high school plans and wonder if I would have been good at teaching physics, or if teaching physics would have been good for me.  I’m not really sure, but I don’t really feel like physics was ever something that could have gotten me out of bed in the morning.  I just never loved it that much.

Still, there was something to the idea of teaching physics that I did love, and actually continue to love: teaching.

Last night after our Bible study over John 9–which was rife with aha-moments and lightbulbs turning on–I thought, “This is why I wanted to teach!”  Since being here, we have begun to see people starting to “get it” and feel myself encouraged every time.

Anyway–I guess that’s just a round about way of saying we hada  great Bible study last night, and I was really encouraged by how things went. 🙂

Sunday’s Message

Last week Stan asked me if we could put together a special morning focused on Communion.  If you’d like to take a listen here is the study I taught taking a deeper look at Communion.
