1. Keith Wood - 30th May, 2010


You don’t know me, except from a comment I lately left on your blog, but I am writing because we have some things in common, and to invite you to something. I have actually been following your blog for a couple years. The story starts with a CRM prayer guide that mentioned Stephen Irwin and what he was doing in Scotland. From there I got on to Re:Hope and have become a regular listener of Brian Ingraham’s podcasts and a big fan of that church. From there I got on to you and have been following your path through Multnomah and since with interest. We also share a passion for books and I have read and appreciate several of the books you have listed here, especially Rees Howells, Mountain Rain, Red Moon Rising, and of course the Bible. I also appreciate your passion for Christ and your desire to be His in whatever way He wants.

Although I am a geologist during the week, I teach Sunday School at my church in Nevada and have been teaching on the Kingdom of God for the last year. During my vacation next moth to Kennewick, Washington I will be teaching a seminar on the Kingdom of God on Tuesday, May 22 from 9AM -2PM at my Mom’s church. I realize that is quite drive for you, and is in the middle of the week, and you don’t know me, and all that, but I think the teaching would be something you are interested in. Below is the blurb for my teaching that the church there put in their bulletin.

I certainly understand if you are busy, or don’t want to gamble a long drive (and a really early morning) on someone you’ve never heard of, but I wanted to let you know, in case the Lord puts it on your heart to come.

Either way, I’d be glad of an email from you. I love people that are sold out for the Lord, and I’m curiously watching to see where God puts you in His service.

Regards, Keith Wood.

Here is the Blurb:
John the Baptist and Jesus often taught about the Kingdom of God, yet we hear little about it today. What is it and how does it apply to our lives? Come and see how difficult concepts like the unity of believers and our oneness with Christ relate to the Kingdom of God. We’ll explore how the Kingdom is relevant to the message we preach, our personal lives as believers, and our life together as a community of God’s people. We will look at many passages of Scripture to build a Biblical concept of the Kingdom of God, and take away a practical set of applications that are easily adapted to many situations in our lives. We will try to answer questions such as:

o Why is communal prayer more powerful than individual prayer?

o What did Paul mean by saying “I was crucified with Christ”?

o In the Lord’s Prayer, what did Jesus mean by “Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven”?

o What was the message of the early church?

o When Paul writes “Set your mind on the things above” what are those things, and what are we supposed to do next?

Come hear how the Kingdom of God connects and explains all these themes.
