The Banner Conference, 2010

It is already nearly a week since the 2010 Ministers' Conference at Leicester came to an end. As ever, it was a spiritually refreshing time, and I am grateful to the church here for facilitating my attendance at the conference. The stated theme was on being “men for our time”, but for me the message that came through most strongly, both through the formal addresses, the question-and-answer times, and the informal conversations between sessions and over meals, was the pressing need for a close walk with the Lord in prayer – something which has surely been a need in every time! In this respect, O Palmer Robertson's lecture on Matthew Henry's “Method for Prayer” was especially helpful; while Ted Donnelly's closing sermon on John 21.15-17 was both heart-warming and challenging. I returned home at the end of the conference with a renewed desire to serve my Saviour more effectively, with love to Him and to the people entrusted to my care.
