I’m desperate to somehow dump all my pithy and profound thoughts about 2009 out in some elegant manner…but I’m more desperate to link to these teachings…where NT Wright does a much better job than I ever could in being pithy and profound.
This 3-part lecture series was part of InterVarsity’s Following Christ 2008 conference held at the end of December. I believe it dovetails well with some of the things I mentioned in our last Prayer Bulletin regarding prophetic words for 2009 and generally “what God is up to and wants us to be up to” right about now! 😉
For those who are used to listening to NT Wright, you’ll know that he speaks in a lot of “shorthand”, whereby a certain term or phrase has (literally) volumes of teaching behind it. This series is, in my opinion, particularly “dense” and bids you listen to it more than once…it will be worth it! Additionally, Wright uses as his text the book of Colossians. He refers to it almost as a “study” of the book. So, if you listen with a copy of Colossians in front of you, you’ll probably gain even more insight.
