Your Theological Position

Did another quiz today, this is a bit more involved but interesting? Can you tell I was saved into a Methodist church?

You scored as Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan. You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God's grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavly by John Wesley and the Methodists.

What's your theological worldview?

You play from the heart. You also deliver a great show anytime. You have skill, but you really don't like to show off. You let the music come in second to the visuals of the show. You prefer to play with people who know what they are doing.

Across the Irish Sea

Friday I'm off with a few other guys to fly across to Northern Ireland. We're going to a worship leader's training day with Brian Doerksen and Kathryn Scott. Apart from the 5am pickup, the 40 minute bouncy flight on Easy Jet and the drive through unfamiliar Irish country roads, up to Causeway Coast (and then back in the evening), I'm really looking forward to it. Actually I'm looking forward to the travel too, just not the early start.

I always like Brian's style of teaching, plus it'll be a great chance to hang outr with some friends for the journey.

Conferences and Changes

The last two weeks we've been pretty much running from conference to conference. Last weekend we had a fantastic "What is Worship" conference with Dan Wilt

I had the priviledge of leading some of the worship, along with Dan, and one of our guys, Ryan MacKenzie. Dan spoke at the Almond Vineyard on the Sunday and did a great job. The following week was another time of leading worship, although just acoustically in a room full of church planters (including ourselves) at a church planting school with Steve Nicholson

That weekend Steve also did a "Toolkit for Life" conference at Southend Vineyard (our old church), and I got to sit back a bit and play bass in the band along with Wendy O'Connell and Matt Chalk.

Sunday morning we were at Rayleigh Vineyard
I lead worship there with my good friend Dave Gellette.

So we're pretty tired, but the fun never stops. The travelling and flying around probably took the most out of us, but everything went pretty smoothly. Even little Joe seemed to enjoy his first flight on a plane, sleeping through most of it.

The next few months will be concentrated on launching the Forth Valley Vineyard Satelitte and we already seem to be getting a little bit of a kicking spiritually. So please pray that we get some time in the chaos to rest up and regroup before we kick into battle again.

I wish I had an ounce of the soul of this guy, just wait till the vocals kick in...oh man, if only I could lead worship with a voice like that, ...maybe when we get to heaven there'll be a big bluesman leading the worship.

Ladies and gentlemen, the late Freddie King.....
