Over the next week I will be separated from technology–cell phones, television, computers–for a renewal retreat where I will specifically journey through my past wounds to seek deeper healing. Consequently, I will not–of course–be available to respond to any comments and no further posts will appear for the week.
I wanted to let you know this because in the past I have lapsed in my blogging for months. Upon my return I plan to continue to post materials that I have used in teaching over the years. Eventually I would like this site to contain all my published and unpublished (class handouts, etc.) writings–if for nothing else, so that have them all in one place myself! 🙂
Also, I thought I would use this post to note some of the materials I have posted but about which I have said nothing….just so I can tag them and categorize them. Feel free to ignore this part. 🙂
In addition to items I have previously noted in other posts, on my Bible Class page there are a couple of handouts. One handout outlines and offers a general teaching perspective for working through Thomas Olbricht’s His Love Compels (his NT theology from College Press) and it is available here.
Another outline is a series of teaching guidelines I did for the teachers and placed online for students in Bible Classes at Woodmont Hills. As Rubel Shelly and John York preached through the Epistles of John, I provided outlines to the Bible Classes as they studied each week the texts from which Rubel and John preached. On my General Materials page is the Teaching the Johannine Epistles handout that was distributed to ministers at the Northwest Sermon Seminar in Portland, OR in the late 1999. It contains homilectic suggestions and duplicates some of the material in the teaching outline of 1 John. The teaching outline, however, is more recent.
Another handout on the Bible Class page is a chart entitled the “Meals with Jesus in Luke.” This chart is contained in my book Come to the Table but I offer it here as a convenient handout for those who might want to use it.
