2008: Truth into experience

GGOJ 2008: Truth into experienceThe ‘God’s glory our joy conference’ has become a firm fixture in my diary every October. Based for the last few years at the Emmaus Church Centre in Warrington, its aim is easily stated — ‘Building biblical churches for the 21st century’.

This year’s theme was ‘Truth into experience’, with sermons covering our experience and imitation of the Triune God (David Last); profiting from worship (John Palmer); speaking the truth in love (Phil Arthur) — and a concluding sermon by Geoff Thomas.

When confronted with biblical exposition, relevant application, humour and exhortation from men who know the joys and heartaches of building and feeding Christ’s church, such an experience can only be of great benefit.

2007: Engaging with God

GGOJ 2007: Engaging with GodFor the fifth year running I travelled from rural Northumberland to the North-West of England for the ‘God’s Glory our Joy’ Conference and once again the fellowship, ministry and worship were thought provoking, heart warming and extremely challenging.

The theme for this year’s conference was ‘Engaging with God’ and it started on the Friday afternoon with a session for church leaders entitled ‘Walking with God’. Alec Taylor talked about the danger of people being involved in a lot of activity for God but having little or no communion with God. Communication is key to a close walk with God. We need to set time aside for regular communion with God.  David, Daniel and the Lord Jesus himself all rose early to spend time with God the Father. Prayer needs to be a way of life for all church leaders, they need to ponder and meditate on the Word of God and be prepared to wait upon the Lord.  Desire and discipline are critical if they are to maintain a close walk with God.
