What's out there

Holidays put an end to blogging for a couple of weeks.

I've still managed to keep up - to some extent - with what's being posted on blogs and websites elsewhere.

I guess the Lakeland / Todd Bentley saga is the big news in the Pentecostal / Charismatic world. Whatever you thought of Lakeland, I hope you would agree that for it to end in this way is tragic and impacts us all.

You can read the statement from Fresh Fire Ministries at http://www.freshfire.ca/?Id=1065&pid=8

J. Lee Grady also comments at http://fireinmybones.com/index.php?col=081308~Life%20After%20Lakeland:%20Sorting%20Out%20the%20Confusion

For something more encouraging check out Steve Addisons two part interview with Andrew Evans on the remarkable growth of Australian Assemblies of God (now Australian Christian Churches):

Enough for now.

I'll post later on a debate held at the Edinburgh Festival between Christopher Hitchens (leading atheist) and John Lennox, Christian apologist. I know you can't wait.
