I picked up a copy of the latest newfrontiers magazine this morning. Its not online yet, but I expect it will be available here soon.
I haven’t read it all yet, but things that grabbed my attention were Terry Virgo’s glowing review or Alec Motyer’s BST message of Exodus which I’m hoping to read next month after I’ve finished Wilcock on Luke.
Also, there is an the interview with David Stroud who will now be heading up the New Frontiers UK work. It reveals that he studyied theology at Durham under James Dunn who he says has “written a lot of the best theological work on the Holy Spirit”.
I have a number of friends who have been part of David Stroud’s churches in Birmingham and London, and he has a strong church planting focus as well as a heart for “Word and Spirit” churches (a subject he spoke well on at one of the Brighton leadership conferences), so I think this will be a good thing for the New Frontiers group of churches.
I’ve also booked a couple of days off work to attend this year’s New Frontiers Leadership Conference in Brighton. I’ll go on the Wednesday, and then look after the children for Steph to go on the Thursday. Let me know if any of you fellow NFI bloggers are going – perhaps I’ll get to say hello.
