Over recent months I have been writing blog articles based on the New Testament readings for year C in the Lectionary Readings which are used in churches throughout the world. I have now finished those readings for Year C which finishes on 20 November 2022. I decided to do those to help fellow parishioners to have some Biblical commentary in blog form until we get a new Rector who begins in November. I chose to do the New Testament readings [which are mainly the epistles] as I thought our present preachers would probably be preaching more on the gospel passages.
The question arose, what to write on next? A friend suggested that I put into print some of my Core Teaching modules I had been teaching on for much of the 18 years I was the Leader of the Healing Ministry at St Andrew’s Cathedral, Sydney until my retirement in 2006. I had taught those same subjects in All Saints Winter Park Episcopal church in Central Florida during the month my late wife and I ministered there every year from 1999 to 2008 [except2000] and in 2012. So I will try to do that over the coming months [if not years]. These topics developed as I began at the Cathedral in 1988 and I tried to find biblical answers to the problems we all face in life, especially when we or our loved ones are stricken with illness or other debilitating problems. There are probably 5 or 6 subjects in each of the 5 Stages of Core Teaching, so that is a lot of material.
These may take some time to find and prepare but I hope to get going soon. In the meantime, there are over 420 articles on my blog site dating back to 2011 which cover many Biblical passages and doctrines and an excellent search function that enables one to find all the articles on a Biblical text or doctrine.
Core Teaching Stage 1 Topic 1 is already in preparation and may be posted on the blog site in the coming weeks.
