Along The Way (30/Sept/05)

Friday... I've really been blessed this week to be spending time with Origen (not in person, but...). This Sunday I'll begin a five week series of messages called Timeless Truths, sharing sermons from early church fathers and past preaching giants. The challenge is to prepare their message spoken so many years ago, but to update it into current language and accent it with relevant illustrations.

So this first one is a message entitled 'The First Homily' by Origen. It was delivered sometime in the 3rd Century, and is believed to be one of the first sermons preached to a congregation that was transcribed and copied. The text is the Song of Solomon 1:1-12.

It's been another great week where conversations are concerned. In addition to just about daily conversations on the words 'saved' and 'unsaved' (thanks BLOG crowd!), I've conversed with a couple people about Communion (also called the Lord's Supper, Mass or the Eucharist), baptism (believers only or infant children of believers too?), and with a few folks over books we're reading and where our thinking is being stretched. All among the highlights of my week!

Have you had any good conversations this week?
