Apple podcasts will auto-generate transcripts in time for the next podcast series on the Fruit of the Spirit.
This year I tackled two books of the Bible I’ve been wanting to teach for a long time, 1&2Thessalonians. Plus I updated my series on Galatians.
In 2023, I created 32 podcasts and published 20 new resource pages to the library. You downloaded the podcasts 21,321 times for an average of 1,777 listens per month. You can see all the stats here if you’re interested.
What did you learn from Galatians? For me, it was walking by the Spirit, a topic we will explore more in the next series.
I’m very excited to teach Galatians 5-6 in November! The last time I taught Galatians I was blessed to be working with a team. But schedules required someone else teach the last two chapters. I have waited over 10 years to get my chance. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed learning it.
A national survey revealed that 42% of pastors considered quitting recently and many already have. There’s no question in my mind that we ask too much of pastors today, but I also think pastors share a bit of the blame. Here’s my solution to the “Great Pastor Resignation.”
WitW: Galatians started and we’ve already finished chapter 1.
What’s coming next on the podcast? Galatians (13 weeks) plus a deep dive into the Fruit of the Spirit (12 weeks). The podcast will return later this summer. Stay tuned for details.
What did you learn from Thessalonians? I’d love to hear your from you.
The podcast is on break for some much needed study time before we start a new series.
We finished 1Thessalonians in April and will start 2Thessalonians in May. I will finally teach a passage I’ve avoided for a long time: Paul’s discussion of the end times in chapter 2. It will be interesting!
I avoided teaching 1&2Thessalonians for a long time, because of the passages on the end times (e.g 1Thessalonians 4 and 2Thessalonians 2). But I wanted to teach them because of Paul’s advice for living your life now in 1Thessalonians 4-5. Those passages seem particularly applicable in today’s upside world. I hope you learn as much as I did.
