A letter from across the sea

Since I am over 40 and therefore no longer qualify as young, perhaps I will escape the ire you direct at young Bible teachers in the United Kingdom. They are, apparently, ‘a bunch of cowards‘.  If I cannot speak as one of them, let me at least speak as one amongst them. Whenever I train young preachers here, I am struck by their zeal to be useful to God, their meticulous attention to detail, and their profound respect for the Word of God. When they lose sleep on the night before preaching a sermon it is not because they are out partying, it is because the weight of speaking for God lies heavily upon their shoulders. They want neither to run out before God and say things they might regret, nor lag behind him and regret the things they did not say. I thank God for every enriching moment I have spent amongst them.

This is only a partial response, as so far there is only a partial quote from your interview. With the full interview will come a fuller response from many, I am sure.

In the meantime, may God bless the preaching of His word on both sides of the Atlantic.
