David Smith joined us for the Free Methodist Annual Conference.
We also had a visit from Steve Goss who wrote the Freedom in Christ course.
What does the Holy Spirit still have to teach us from these messages?
As always these messages are available for listening and also for download. If you don’t know how to download then there’s some instructions here. If you are someone who uses iTunes then you might also like to know that you can subscribe to the podcasts in the iTunes store.
We’ve recently had some problems with the podcasts which has meant that some of them have been unavailable.
Bringing them back has meant going through each one and reconfiguring it. While doing this I’ve seen each podcast title over the last 12 months.
Each of these titles has reminded me of a message that we’ve received – sometimes it has been an encouragement at others some wisdom, sometimes the message has been for us as individuals at others the message has been for us as a community.
My memory was particularly pricked by a couple of the messages from the beginning of this year that set our vision for 2011. They were based on the words of Mark 5:36 – “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”:
These messages, and the other podcasts, weren’t just for a point in time, they still speak to us today. It’s one of the reason why I think it’s important to keep the podcast archive available to people, which we will do.
As it is there are about 140 messages to listen to, plenty of food for our souls.
It seems appropriate that we passed this milestone with a message that is pointing us outwards to the people and the world around us.
There were some earlier podcasts that are no longer online, but we had limited space back in those days so we have to make room.
The quality of the early podcasts is a bit off too because we used to record onto a tape and then transfer into a computer for uploading. It took a long time didn’t give us the best of outcomes. Now we use a little MP3 recorder which stores the talks onto a memory card, we still have to do a bit of manipulation of the files so that they are consistent, but it’s a lot quicker than it used to be.
