Greg Stiekes audio and Good Friday Meditation Booklet

A few quick resources for you today:

First, my good friend and pastor Greg Stiekes is one of the best preachers I know. Not only is he an outstanding exegete and communicator, but he also has a biblical grasp on several significant contemporary issues.

One of those most important issues he speaks to is one that is near to my heart: shaping the next generation. Greg recently spoke in Marshall, MN on this topic, and the audio has recently been made available:

I would urge you to give these a listen. I would also strongly suggest that you have Greg speak in your church some time. If you need a speaker for a Bible conference, weekend seminar, family camp, etc. Greg is an engaging, interesting, and thoughtful speaker.

You can listen to others of his sermons here. Other topics Greg is more than competent to speak on include church unity, the emergent church, the apostolic fathers, and worship.

Second, last year Michael Riley and I compiled a book for use in a Good Friday service or for a time of personal reflection or family worship. Michael has posted the booklet again this year.
