well, it's been a while since i even looked at my blog - and the list of topics that i intend to write on is just getting longer, and as i have a bit of time this week, i should realy write something.
Last week i spent at lake moogerah . This was the yearly 'Mid Year Camp' put on by a christian group around the uni called the 'evangelical students' of which i'm a part. This year the topic of the camp was the doctrine of scripture, although we ended up looking at the trinity allot more than scripture itself. Key passages were 2 peter, 2 tim and psalm 119 (used more in the bible studies not the teaching sessions), although there was allot of other passages used. Once i've got the cd's (probably next week) i'll post them on my website for download.
I've just added the cd's from last years camp, which was on the topic of 'Christ and Culture
', or 'how christians should relate to the world around them'. Feel free to copy them.
Two years ago the topic was isiah, but i didn't attend that one.
At all these camps the speaker was the local chaplin. No, that's not the right term. minister and preacher aren't correct either - Keith is just the guy that does the teaching, and he is quite good at it.
back to the teaching:
the individual lectures/sermons/?? were on the topics of...
well i can't remember the titles, but the topics were roughly what does it mean for christ to be the word, god to send the word, the holy spirit interpreting the word, the last lecture was on applications for all this, and i can't remember the topic of the other one (it was a 5 day camp).
it was nice to be able to sit back and relax, without any computers for email, and while there was 'a' tv there (one between about 100 of us) noone used it.
during the free time people played soccer, chess, 500, mao (another card game - if you ask i'll explain), and mafia (ditto).
some of the best chess players that i've had to practice with in a while were there (i lost more than one game in a row in the first time in quite a while) and, everyone being uni students, the average interlecutal level of conversation was a little higher than normal.
(i intend to update this when i get home - add pictures and the like)
