Book Give Away!

I wrote a new book which came out last Easter just after the first lockdown started, and so, well, even I sort of forgot about it. But, I eventually got my hands on a few copies, so, I'd like to give two of them away.  The book is about the theology of the founders of the Apostolic Church, so it should hopefully be of interest to Apostolic pastors, which means one of the copies is reserved for any pastor in the Apostolic Church. The other copy is for anyone in the UK (because international postage is too expensive, sorry!). Here's the link to enter the competition. (I've never tried making a competition before, so sorry if it's not the most slick!) There are four ways to enter.  1) Subscribe to the blog by email. 2) Follow me on Twitter. 3) Tweet about the competition using via the competition page above.  4) For the pastor copy, any pastor can email me at the address in the Apostolic Church UK Staff Address Book.  You can see the full table of contents on the Google b

Singing the Bible's Song of the Ascension

Tomorrow is the Sunday after Ascension Day, and as Ascension Day (the greatest Thursday in the year!) isn't a holiday in the UK and most of us don't have Ascension Day services on a Thursday (alas), the Sunday after Ascension Day is a good time to dwell upon the glory of our Ascended Saviour.

So, here are two completely different takes on singing the Bible's own song of the Ascension - Psalm 24.

First up, here's Sons of Korah's version of Psalm 24 with words taken straight from the Bible (NIV I think) and in contemporary worship style.



And secondly, here's the more traditional Scottish Metrical Psalter version of Psalm 24:7-10, sung acapella. This is the old translation of the words, but the new translation in Sing Psalms fits to the same tune in modern language.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. (Col. 3:16)
