Around and about (with Lloyd-Jones and Spurgeon)

Posted by
I managed to sneak in a few hours at the Banner of Truth Ministers Conference in Leicester last week. I was unable to stay for more than a day, but heard a sweet sermon from Andrew Davies, what was for me a somewhat ungrounded disquisition on sin by the very engaging David Meredith, and a thought-provoking meditation from Garry Williams on the reforming church and what he labelled "false conservatism." I should point out that the latter two were probably not asked to deliver sermons, but the Banner could do with more preaching at these conferences. As usual, it was a particular pleasure to meet several old friends, and some newer ones.

One distinctive feature of my time away was the pleasure of meeting the film crew who are working on a documentary about the life and legacy of Lloyd-Jones, Logic on Fire. Matthew Robinson and Jon Yerby, two of the brothers working on the film, dropped by the church which I serve on the previous Lord's day and spend the day with us, which was a delight. A number of the great and the good (and one or two others!) had the opportunity to speak about the impact of Lloyd-Jones' on their own lives and labours. I look forward to seeing the finished product, and will pass on details when it is available.

Another pleasure was meeting Stephen McCaskell, a Patheos blogger and collator of the quotes in the book Through the Eyes of C. H. Spurgeon (Amazon.com / Amazon.co.uk). He is working hard on a film that will take us on a guided tour of the life of this servant of God: Through the Eyes of Spurgeon. I am eager to see what Stephen will produce, and it looks as if I may have some involvement, which will be fun. I hope to let you know how the project progresses. In the meantime, anyone eager to help out can make a donation.
