Once more with feeling...
Josh Harris on
This week has been all about friends, hanging out with Rich & Nicky, with Piers & Carolyn last Sunday. Richard and Patricia on Wednesday and Thursday.
Big meal with Jo, with Tom & Caroline on Thursday. Particularly good to see Jo home from Spain, and Tom from California. Good friends for many years.
Saturday - Ginny. Nice barn in rural foggy wiltshire. Road trip. Pain-au-chocolat!
Team Days are always a highlight. This time particularly Stephen Dray on the authority of the Bible and Lyn Penson on Creeds and Confessions (Church History II).
Loving to get into church history more and more. Stephen's stuff was as always great, I was particularly struck by his reference to the way we use the Bible in terms of:
The Regulative Principle (Calvin/Baptists)
The Normative Principle (Luther/Anglicans)
i. because normally Calvin is with the Anglicans.
Stephen also reminded us that there is the "Spirit-Led Principle" which covers some of that middle ground. Of course, both other groups are led by Scripture and so are Spirit-led.
Need to think on this area. What do you think?
3. Mrs May's Christmas Dinner.
This is team also, but warrants a mention. Amazing. See also photo of the week.
A good day of conversation with the in-laws on friday. Just great.
