3 of my favourite reads this year

Posted by Anne Witton on Friday, August 30, 2019, In : Books 


For those who do still like to get their information from books, here are my favourite three Christian reads so far this year:

  1. The Message of the Sermon on the Mount by John Stott
    I read this in conjunction with working through the corresponding Lifebuilder Bible Study (also by Stott). Like all Bible Speaks Today commentaries, it combines helpful cultural context and background with a systematic exegesis and application of the text. This is one of the most significant passages of Scripture whic...

I’m often ashamed of the first word that pops into my head when I bash my shins on the bath.

The truth is that my instinctive and impulsive responses are ...

Philip and the Ethiopian: Lessons in evangelism

Posted by Anne Witton on Monday, July 31, 2017, In : Reflections 


I recently preached at Kelvin Grove church in Gateshead and my text was Acts 8: 26 - 40. I’m not going to recreate the sermon here or go into the background and exegesis of the passage, but I did want to highlight 4 things we can learn about Philip’s approach to evangelism:

(1) Relying on the on the Holy Spirit
Clear that Philip relied on and was directed by the Spirit (v.26, 29, 39). He was open to going where God told him to go in the power that God gave him, and we need to do the same. W...
